    The Pentagon leadership has profited handsomely from nation building. They’ll award big contracts and then retire a few years later to go work for the contractor for a big pay check.

    We do teach History in school, Bill, the kids are too busy playing with their cell phones to pay attention or they’re dozing off. Not all of them, but the majority. Take their phones away for 1 hour and it becomes “an assault on their freedom”. What a joke school is in America.

    It deeply angers me when Trump supporters say they are against foreign commitments and “forever wars” because they are the _exact same people_ who supported them in the first place.

    Bin Laden wasn’t even in Afghanistan. He was killed in Pakistan which is supposedly our ally. So why didn’t we attack Pakistan for “harboring terrorists?” Maybe because they have nukes? Afghanistan was just a useful punching bag to make the angry American people feel like they got some revenge for 9/11. It was just a money making machine for the military industrial complex, and the CIA which is skimming profits off the heroin trade. This was definitely a “dumb war.”

    half the discretionary federal budget goes to the military industrial complex. its been like that for 20 years. there is no political appetite for fixing domestic issues. we need to stop the lobbyists from enabling the grift.

    We went there for the same reason the Ruskies went there. Because it is a perfect strategic position to keep a thumb over the entire Middle East.

    Or would be, if anyone could ever actually control it.

    Good lucky teaching history if you can’t teach Critical race theory! Was there only two wars that the Americans won were American Revolutionary War and their only own civil war?

    Men lying to us since 1619? Who knew men lying was a thing? How much did Raytheon make off the bomb that was dropped today? We are talking to terrorists in Afghanistan and letting domestic terrorists off the hook here. I am just sick of this mess!
