Civilization has changed. Humans haven't.

Correction: your "point" ignored. Because the "booty" wasn't the point of the exercise.

Then what *was* the point?
Iraq had no WMDs, Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, Iraq was not a haven for terrorists - other than the ones in power, and they only terrorized Iraqis (after mistakenly assuming we said they could have Kuwait).
So the Iraq war was fought for?

So we could grind down the terrorist against the US military.

It seems that it encouraged them to expand, rather than grinding them down.

Who is in charge in South Korea and why? Isn't that where Hyundai Heavy Industries is? And: Asiana Air Daewoo Hankook tires Kumho Kia Samsung LG Electronics etc.
I believe the US Army contributed a great deal to the success South Korea has experienced. I happened to have contributed a bit myself.

Reminder: Israel is the only country in the region to give back land won by force of arms. They gave back Sinai and the West Bank. They tried to give Gaza back to the Egyptians, but the Egyptians said "No thanks, it's full of Palestinians."

Further, where was the international outrage when Egypt detonated explosives in the smugglers' tunnels recently?

Creating Israel where they did was an error in judgement and the Jews should have been offered Florida ...or maybe Scotland.
My point being that if Israel were created in the USA, how long would it take for Americans to accept it as a legitimate, separate and sovereign state?

Britain didn't own Florida you know. When the UK defeats the US in a war and is ceded Florida as part of the war reparations then get back to us.

Instead it was created in Turkey and the Turks didn't have any trouble with it. Or are you unaware that prior to the British mandate resulting from the defeat of Turkey in WWI what is now Israel was a province of Turkey?

Were the Turks given a choice? What was that "province" called at that time? Who was living there?
