Now my personal opinion on this is that we're broke, we have no money to open a 3rd front, nor to maintain fronts in Iraq and Afghanistan. To consider otherwise is childish.
But I understand the administration's need for distraction. We knew that war was likely, that war was needed so that the American population wouldn't pay attention to the criminal theft and destruction of the United States as a democracy. War bailed us out of the first Great Depression and our ruling class is hoping it will work a second time around.
This is all a farce. We prop up evil dictatorships and then when our money printing causes the people to literally starve in those countries, we attack. How absurd and hypocritical the United States has become. And the lack of respect for human life is galling. But as long as Goldman, JP Morgan and Citi can now pay taxpayer financed dividends, its all good.
