  1. Wanna know how America ends up fighting messy conflicts? We do it when we allow a region of substantial strategic interest to us (Syria, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq) to spiral out of control. We do it when there are proxies who could fight and die, allowing us to help guide outcomes rather than become embroiled in battles afar, but we ignore them, or subcontract their management to extremists. Sound familiar? Were you alive in the 1980s and 1990s watching Iraq and Afghanistan? Right. Then you know.

    What BS. The US gets into messy conflicts because it does not mind its own business and supports tyrants and terrorists abroad. Anyone who loves the US should demand that it bring its troops back home and establish commercial relations whit all.
