3. True, but on the plus side, it would keep the Great WOT going for another couple of decades.

It's a business decision. Once you start adjusting your brain to try to think like the MIC and multitudes of subsidiary Military 'Contractors' a lot of things that don't make any sense, suddenly start to do so. And that means, not caring about human beings, which is why it is so hard for the average person to do.

I'm sure it's all been carefully calculated, including the fact that Americans have very short memories. Five years from now when we are told we need more billions of dollars to fight Al Queda in Syria, most Americans won't remember who created them in the first place. Same as Afghanistan and all the other dictators we are currently supporting. Looking at our history, which I had not done until a few years ago, it is really shocking to see who our 'allies' usually are. They are NOT generally democratically elected leaders in countries whose resources our war profiteers want control of.
