America well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom.
Nowadays the brainwashed people idolize and glorify the ones that are ripping them off, because they are set into a deep sleep by the propaganda media.
It’s been three-quarters of a century since the Axis powers were defeated, nearly 30 years since the Iron Curtain was lifted, and 18 years since terrorists weaponized planes on U.S. soil, killing nearly 3,000 Americans.
Today, America is neither entrenched in a great war, nor frozen in the kind of nuclear game of chicken that induced Baby Boomers to undergo fire drills that had them hiding under their elementary school desks.
However, the US regime is not anticipating another 9/11-style terrorist attack. Yet the U.S. military is still operating in 40% of the nations of the world. It is has been engaged in nation-building efforts in Afghanistan for the better part of two decades.
Some $5.9 trillion has been spent to fight the “war on terror” in that time only to see the pool of jihadists grow ever-larger. Little wonder that nearly half of Americans believe U.S. foreign policy over the last 20 years has made the country less safe.
