The US bombing its own guns perfectly sums up America’s total failure in Iraq

And so now the US has to use American weaponry to destroy the American weaponry it gave Iraqis to make Iraqis safer, in order to make Iraqis safer.

  1. War is Hell. It is also a very profitable business. Why do you think the MSM likes to beat the drum for war, it is because it makes them money. Making weapons, selling them, making more weapons, selling those and having them used to destroy other weapons is genius a way to make money. Read the Arms of Krupp. It tells the story of a German family that made millions making weapons. They probably still are. Both France and Germany are selling weapons to Russia. How long do you think it will be before NATO is trying to destroy those weapons?

    The mistake made in Afghanistan and Iraq was 1) going there in the first place and 2) thinking we could make them into democracies. We cannot force them to be like us, the sooner we leave them to choose their own fate the better. (The better for us, probably not for them.)

  2. “Leave them to their fate” would be a better way to express it. I don’t think any Afghans or Iraquis will be choosing their own fate.
