I don't know whether these wars are justified or not, whether our nation is really being threatened. But I can assure you of one thing: stop the wars and the campaign money from the defense industry will dry up.
Am I cynical enough to believe that our politicians are willing to keep a war going just so defense funds keep coming in? Absolutely. They are willing to keep a defective healthcare system that kills people in the US, why would they be more timid with soldiers and citizens in other countries?
