This is a serious question. I really have no idea of why US citizens are fighting and dying in other peoples wars and I would be grateful for some serious explanation.
Why are the lives of US citizens and the tax dollars of US tax payers being expended in fight wars in other countries where the locals don't want to fight for their own issues?
Our citizens are encouraged to fight and die in foreign lands for the benefit of some foreign people who do not have the will to fight for themselves or to support our citizens as our citizens fight for their benefit.
These wars present no actual threat to the US. We could easily carpet bomb Afghanistan or just nuke it and get the people who have struck at us. We could be done in a few days and get back to the more important issues of resolving our own internal problems.
We grow the cattle feed for the world. We could hold up exports of animal feed products for 45 days and cause most of these countries to experience famine that they have never dreamed of.
We have our own problems and the money that is being spent on other peoples problem could be better spent on solving our own problems.
We have gained nothing but enemies by participating in the traditional never ending wars of Europe, Asia and Africa. These are places that have never been at peace in history of mankind for more than 25 years. There is always somebody killing somebody somewhere in the areas and there is no indication that they are interested in the least in stopping.
We fight and die to save these people from themselves only so they can kill or be killed in some other conflict. What's the point?
Why are United States citizens in the US Military fighting and dying in other people wars?
Why is the wealth of the United States being wasted on wars in countries where there is no direct benefit to the United States?
I am asking for your considered opinions and that you shed some light on this mystery by your response to either or both questions.
I am not asking for a load of bad mannered mental vomit so if that is all you have, dump it some where else.
