Does any American citizen have even the slightest idea why we are in really fighting in Afghanistan? I think not. 16 years to fight a war that is totally meaningless to us for no other reason than to keep the military busy and make huge profits for American big business. We have an ignorant population that is ready to believe any BS they are told if it will "cut taxes and make them safe".
The very people who voulenteer to join the military so they can go and "fight" to protect our "freedom" are the enablers who have curtailed our freedoms. Fighting all these needless, immoral and expensive wars for years and years only serves the 1% that profit from them at the expense of ignorant, undereducated, macho fools who become nothing but cannon fodder to MAGA!
Is it any wonder most of the civilized world just looks at us and shakes their hean in amazement that a country can be controlled by a few ignorant voters and a clow president? We have become the laughing stock of the world and it's only the fear of our needless military might that keeps us on time. We are always fighting the wrong people for the wrong reasons and because the politicians wrap it up in patriotism the gulable masses accept it.
We have learned nothing since Vietnam Nam and I fear we never will.
