Invasions, what are they good for?

Iran: Warhawks and sending others to kill and die:


"I wish I could stand in front of this blood-thirsty coward and tell him this to his face. And then spit in his face. Then put a goddamned rifle in his hand and parachute him into Tehran. Go ahead, Muravchik. Go ahead, Bezos. You boys are so bad, you’re so tough, you’re so hard and hot for war. Go fight it yourself, you cowardly motherfuckers."

Took the words right out of my mouth. Great post.

Iraq : Blackwater Mercs pay for killing innocent civilians

Now, how to make reparations for the atrocities committed by the United States in Iraq? The whole country is a hellhole, and terrorism is worse in the world, because of pundits, warhawks, and those with neither conscience nor foresight in their conclusions that these invasions somehow make our country safer.

Obviously, Afghanistan and Iraq had NO NET BENEFIT to the United States nor the world. Millions dead, and for what? And still ignorant Americans, mainly those who identify themselves as both Christian and Republican, watch swill like American Sniper and drone on about "Freedom." The only thing that these Americans have freed themselves from is the chains of thoughtful consideration and the bonds of  honest assessment of what our country has wrought.
