Let's assume you were right (you're not) about intervention "not getting us anywhere good". Past performance guarantees future results? I mean, your sentence didn't make sense even logically. "I tried to buy a car in the past, but it didn't work, I didn't have the money. I can never buy a car in the future."and thus decades more will bring us to no better place.
So when does does a war become too long? 4 years and 22 days? 7 years and 4 months?We did not fight Japan for over a decade and we were in a declared war against a unified people.
lol, so it was more complex than your extremely simplistic model suggested? You never answered that question before? ARE THINGS MORE COMPLEX THAN YOUR EXTREMELY SIMPLISTIC STATEMENTS MAKE THEM APPEAR?So obviously corollaries between terrorism, our imperialism, the Middle East and our war with Japan are not accurate. Duh.
Yeah, that's what happens when nations use military power to further interests.So if we look at the measured results we see that we've killed more Americans because of our interventionism,
You think that's because of interventionism? Do you think gunboat diplomacy wasn't about money and opening up markets? Interventionism makes money too, that's kind of the point of it. But it has maintenance costs.spent trillions of dollars we don't have (why do you think the debt ceiling is a problem...are you really not paying attention?),
Did you think any of those things were new? The only thing new is the technology and governments (not just the US) trying to play catch up with it.and bills such as the Patriot Act are passed, domestic spying is enacted, draconian police state agencies such as TSA and HLS act against us, warrentless searches, etc. All in the name of fear because some people cannot rationalize out the repercussions, consequences, and dangers of freedom.
Er...that's hilarious. What do you do for a living? What was your major in college?If this must be explained, I fear the one who must have it explained is not paying attention to anything.
