does anyone else like me think it is all to do with protecting and generating wealth for the aggressor.
If that was the objective and the final outcome, it could actually pass for a smart policy. Mean, inhumane, but smart.
The problem is that the US wars generate wealth only for the military swamp. To sell another to the gullible, the swamp has to dress it up as patriotic as possible with "democracy", "our freedoms" and s*it like that. The most annoying thing about it is that this ploy is used over and over and works like a charm every single time.
