But if America is not a certain winner from this war, who is?

Iran saw its great enemy Saddam removed and its Shia allies come to power in Baghdad. Osama bin Laden saw America bled by wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and perhaps Iran, as al Qaeda has spread to Yemen, Somalia and North Africa.

And as America was tied down in the Long War, China emerged as the world’s No. 1 auto producer, No. 1 manufacturer, No. 1 exporter and No. 2 economy.

Meanwhile, The Washington Times reports,

“The federal government has posted signs along a major interstate highway in Arizona, more than 100 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, warning travelers the area is unsafe because of drug and alien smugglers, and a local sheriff says Mexican drug cartels now control some parts of the state.”

What does it profit America if we save Anbar and lose Arizona?

This was an amazing post by Patrick Buchanan. He was correct back in September 2002 about the Iraq war and warned us it was all lies and it was purely imperialism.

You should really read this article, it's not too long but has a lot of great information inside.

“The only lesson we learn from history is that we do not learn from history.”

And the Imperial army marches on....

73% of Americans think the invasion of Iraq was not worth the cost yet our Administration and Congress continue to expand the wars.

So why do we paid heed and taxes to a government that does not listen or represent us?

Well that's a good question.

That's like asking why an abused wife continues to return to her abusive husband.

We pay out of fear. We fear our government. We the People are in fear of those who are supposed to be our public servants put in place to safeguard our liberties. Instead, we have a government that is tyrannical and has no problem putting it's subjects in prison for not doing as they're commanded.

Governments only understand force. Hence they can only be reined in using the same. Those believing in the possibility of voting this tyranny away have never studied history.

It seem like we do it because that's how it has always been done. The following clip details this kind of thinking. It's called five monkeys.

On the other hand, people fear the unknown and are content to go along with what they are comfortable with, even if they find it wrong. Others just don't care or won't educate themselves on the issues and will always go along with what they are told-even if it is wrong.

Yes but those corporations smart enough to involved with war proffiteering are recording record proffits with the fortunes made from arms dealing, which your average tax payer is essentialy funding and seeing zero return on. How awesome is that?, how could one NOT feel pride in ones country.
