United States Has Not Won a War in 70 YearsSubmitted by TommyPaine on Sat, 09/07/2013 - 22:38
Think about it. Since 1945 ...
Korea - Forced to withdraw, giving communists control of the north, and there is still today a "cease fire" -- the "war" or "police action" is officially not ended.
Vietnam - Forced to withdraw, handing it over to the communists, only to see the nation reject communism and embrace a more capitalist, freer society -- WITHOUT war.
Afghanistan - The Taliban government offered to turn over Osama bin Laden (friend of the Bush family and CIA asset) to a neutral third party after 9/11, if only the US government would provide evidence he was involved in the attack. The US government refused. Notably, the FBI claimed they had no solid evidence he was involved. The US invaded presumably to hunt for bin Laden. Although they claim he was killed (on the eve of a book coming out showing the Obama was not a natural born citizen), there was never any actual evidence to prove that bin Laden was actually killed. Today, the situation in Afghanistan is a clusterf&ck, with the US negotiating peace terms with none other than ... the TALIBAN. It's looking more and more like yet another failed war and withdrawal accomplishing absolutely nothing.
Iraq - US invaded for the sole purpose of killing Hussein. After they did, the "wrong" religious sect took control. Christians fled to Syria, where they are once again in danger of the wrong people gaining control. The situation is far worse today in Iraq then when Hussein was around.
In fact, NOTHING positive has been accomplished for the American people in almost 70 YEARS after WWII -- at the cost of trillions of dollars, millions of lives, and a growing hatred around the world towards a people who just a couple decades ago were looked up to as some of the great people of the world.
And it is all being done in the name of "defending freedom in America," while the reality is that freedom is being destroyed in America by the very same individuals who are destroying lives on the other side of the world.
Let's put it all into perspective: for several decades now, the real enemy has been Congress.
