At least the burger flipper performs an economically valuable service.
Right because protecting our rights and freedoms is not at all valuable /sarcasm Remember you’d be speaking German and/or Japanese right now if it were not for our men in uniform years ago. Also thanks to the military we have a lot of the devices you use today.
LOL the only rights under threat are the ones our own politicians are targeting like the 2nd amendment.
all we’re doing over there is raining hell on the impoverished to steal their resources…
Hey assholes lets have a bit of a history lesson now shall we, try and pay attention.
So After the first gulf war, want to know what happened… Saddam Hussein committed genocide, yup, legit genocide, and the world turned a blind eye to it. You want to know why, because they had oil and didn’t want to make all the other countries mad and force them to raise prices.
Countless attacks have been made to us ( including the firing upon our navy ) by people in countries all around the middle east and nothing was done about it.
Saddam kept portions of his country in extremely sub par conditions just because they believed in something different. Oh and did I forget to mention, people still get stoned over there…
So go ahead say ” hurr durr muricans are so bad amirite guise im so hip for hating america military are a bunch of killers ” when in all honesty, we are just trying to protect ourselves. Afghanistan had no known resources when we invaded, the only thing they had, were the people who attacked us. So we took care of it.
Now I know a lot of you are young, and probably don’t read any news except the twisted things you read on Tumblr, but did you know that We weren’t originally going to invade Iraq. by U.N. law Saddam was required to let weapons inspectors into his country. Well he kicked them out and wouldn’t let them back in, so we said ” look we think you have stuff, let us in and look around” and he said no. This was something he agreed to, then came back and said no, a man with a history of brutally gassing his own people to test weapons on them. So yea we had suspicion and cause to go in and check it out.
Little known fact, biological weapons were found buried in Iraq.
It is a known fact ( by people who watch the news ) that life in Iraq and Afghanistan has improved. We have sent engineers over and upgraded their water and electricity systems, allowing more people clean water and stable electricity and school attendance has increased since we have been there.
You know Arab spring… how you all championed for it, you know what caused that… The invasions. You see Egypt and other countries saw that it really was possible to elect their own leaders, that they didn’t have to stay under a dictator if they didn’t want to, and decided to do something about it. Do you really think that they stayed like that just because, and that it is a coincidence that now is when it happened?
