With no clear or definitive goal (unless you consider fighting a war a goal in itself), sinking support, and little success, if any, to show, the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan still rage on. And at what cost? As the result of America’s imperialistic, neo-con driven, foreign policy, “our boys” that we so “passionately” care about are still getting blasted to shreds and filled with lead. All, of course, in the name of fighting terror. What the top guys don’t want you to know is that “fighting terror” means nation building, supporting a corrupt government and overseeing a corrupt election, and “spreading democracy.” Now there’s a crock if I’ve ever heard one.
