At this stage, I haven't put much thought into why we are there, we have been there for what seems like forever. When the Syria thing started, it looked just like we were trying to find a reason to invade, luckily, the rest of the world was against it, and the attempts were stopped. So I'd like to hear from those of you who have been there, those who truly understand the political reasons, the humanitarian reasons we are there. I can't imagine the people there enjoy our presence, but I might be wrong on that, I've not been there.
