And it will continue to be our modus operandi as long as we let corporate greed run the country, especially the oil industry. All four of our last wars: Vietnam, Iraq(2) and Afghanistan, were instigated in order to protect US oil interests. Korea was the last war to have any basis in legitimate US security.
Iraq is the saddest. More Iraqi lives were lost (are still are), due to Bush and Cheney’s lies than Hussein could ever take; they bankrupted the moral reputation and standing of the country, nearly destroyed the economy and caused the death and maiming of tens of thousands of US personnel. They deserve to rot in Hell.
