... kills as many targets as they can find while experiencing no casualties!
"The state of Wisconsin has ... over 600,000 hunters. Allow me to restate
that number. Over the last two months, the eighth largest army in the
world more men under arms than Iran; more than France and Germany
combined deployed to the woods of a single American state to help keep the
deer menace at bay."
I've been saying this for 40 yrs. A foreign land army wouldn't get
half a state from the beaches before being defeated. Every redneck,
yokel, hunter, militia nut, and gun collector in the Us would be
mounted up and rolling within minutes of the news. This is why I
found the movie Red Dawn totally preposterous. Those piρata pinkos
woulda' been wiped out in 24 hrs. And AKs vs scoped 300 WinMags?
The object now is to secure the Trillions of dollars worth of lithium
deposits found in July in Afghanistan by American geologists. So expect
the US to be there for many years because of the potential trillions of
dollars of an important mineral like lithium. The stuff is used to make
cell phone batteries and more and more batteries for just about every
small electronic device. Whoever controls this will have the corner on
the market for sure.
Screw the lithium. It's the poppies that keep us there. Under the
Taliban, as cruel and barbaric as they are, they stopped the trade in
poppies, a major source of heroin. Since we've taken over, the the
heroin flow is secured and going full tilt boogie. Can't have our
whole anti-drug bureaucracy shrinking and the private prison industry
losing $$$$! Jes like our kill-people war machine, the anti-drug war
is a mucho big business.
Now, now, let's be fair! There's another important objective: To
keep the OIL flowing!
To that end, we kiss up to the worst dictatorial regimes in the
world, and arrange to kill anybody who tries to upset the situation.
Like poor Saddam; he would still be at liberty to drop his Shi'ite
opponents into acid if he hadn't tried to upset our cozy deal with the
Saudis: You keep the oil price stable and you can do anything you
want to your people. Only now it's coming out that the money we send
Saudi for the oil is sent right on to our Taliban friends...money
covered with the blood of our troops and of innocent civilians in
Afghanistan and Iraq. AND Pakistan, don't forget; our Pakistani
friends who receive gazillions of dollars from the U.S. Makes our
puny contributions to Israel, which IS on our side, look like play

I was thinking about the AMERICAN continent but that is a good point.
For that matter the Japanese actually invaded and held the Philippines
and a couple of islands in Alaska, both US territories at the time.
Right motive, wrong act. It was supposed to be revenge for the attempt
on GWHB's life.
Some also think taking out a genocidal dictator had some value.
I think we took out Saddam so Israel would not have to. We are going
to have a war with Iran for the same reason.

There's a long a list of genocidal dictators flourishing at that exact

they threatening to disrupt the (un)holy alliance between the U.S. and

The West would be delighted if Israel did the job, like they did with
the Iraqi Osirak reactor back in 1981. That is one of the most
thrilling stories of all time. : "Raid on the Sun"tells the true story
of the raid. Eight planes flew from Israel on that mission; none knew
if they would ever return. The last plane -- ergo the most risky one
-- was piloted by Ilan Ramon. He later became the first Israeli
astronaut to fly a US mission to the space station, and was killed
along with the other astronauts in the Challenger disaster.
Yeah, but why not fanatical against the guys actually CAUSING the
problems? That is the part I don't understand. Even in those
circumstances, the cause and effect relationship could be seen.
And some time the Palestinians will have to realize that they aren't
Israel's pawns as much as they are expendable cannon fodder for Hamas,
etc. Largest part of the reason the Palestinians are in the hurt locker
is because Israel gave up the territory. Within Israel, the Palestinians
are treated better, have access to jobs, have their healthcare and other
services taken care of.
