there's tons of contradictions in that however. Primarily, we gained nothing from Iraq. Most of the oil goes to Asia and Europe. We get a little under
half of the oil. And as time goes on, we get less and less because China wants more and more.
9/11 was the result of US meddling. The US government did not do it, because when the US government does things, it gets results. When the US
government doesn't want Iran to get nukes, 4 Iranian scientists get killed and their military bases blow up. When the US government says it's going to
go against Libya's leader, that leader gets killed and Libya's air force gets shot down.
The US government gained nothing from Iraq nor 9/11 and is now trillions in debt to a country that gave it nothing but a few new military bases that
it will have to close soon anyway. A nation that can do so much....but fail to get results for something is supposedly planned fro a decade? Nope.
Terrorists caused 9/11. Terrorists who lost everything because of US meddling and wanted to send a message. They committed an act of genocide to tell
the US to stop meddling. We did not listen, and now we are a decade into war, with more wars growing. Nothing has been gained, and everything has been
lost. If the US government wanted to be a dictatorship, strip liberties, and kill people, we'd have gotten Martial law in 1993 and been in camps by
1999. The US government did not cause 9/11.
And George Washington caused the death of innocent civilians. Blacks, wanting freedom, joined with British. Natives, wanting land, fought for the
British. These people, forced to desperate measures by US policy, died in a war they didn't understand and never got what they fought for if they got
anything at all.
War sucks. people die. War is a declaration of evil. You don't kill innocent people in peace. What happens in war cannot be called good or evil, for
all of it is evil to begin with. You do what you have to do to win.
