    Except this isn't a war, it's a military occupation. Feel free to try again.

    Don't take your foreign policy ideas from 4 decades of failed policies; people will take you more seriously.
    Wow, pot kettle black!

    "Counterinsurgency" has been shown to be a complete and utter failure, especially for the American military, for the past 4 decades, since its failure in Vietnam.

    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Forget it. You cant fight jingoism, they just label you a "fer-iner" and say you should be bombed too.

    We only give a **** about the middle east because we’re so dependent on oil. We need to keep this region stable in the short term while we do whatever the **** it takes to get off of oil. Then we can let them plunge into chaos and find a new equilibrium that doesn’t involve the US spending trillions to maintain stability.

    Why the hell aren’t we spending those trillions domestically, in search of a non-oil fuel source?
