Yup, I've been saying it over and over.
No one cares. No one except the types of people that visit sites like ATS.
No one WANTS another conflict, but they are more worried about the economy and what's on TV. Most Americans haven't even been outside the country
before, and have a very narrow world view.
Every time I've traveled outside the USA I see tourists from all over. I hardly see any from the USA. I see a TON of Australian people, lots of
Brits...some Canadian, French people too. It's funny being an American overseas and hearing English being spoken. I haven't made such fast friends
in an airport before!
No one cares about some people they've never met or will meet -- in a country that doesn't make their iPhones or Nike shoes. No one wants their kids
dying in a senseless war, but everyone's to tired of 10+ years of war to do anything about it.
There won't be any protests or petitions, and next election cycle things will be so bad we'll be begging the same people to continue their jobs
because they have the "experience" to save us. No one will want to risk voting in all new people, because by that time our country will be in
shambles. Why risk someone new that has no idea what they're getting into?
Americans are tired of the news, everyone just wants to put their feet up, drink a beer and watch the game. Folks in the USA have the attention span
of a gnat anyway, and holding their attention on war for 10+ years has burnt everyone completely out.
Nope, we're going to war to enrich our corporations with defense contracts.
