WW2 was a direct result of WW1, which we entered into. Do you think maybe if we had let that war come to whatever conclusion it would have without us that the Third Reich might have never happened?
Mike, did you ever consider the possibility you were lied to? And the reason we went to Iraq was because our boy Saddam wasn't playing ball with us anymore? He wasn't on board with "a thousand points of light" Bush or his son?

There's a lot of statements being labeled facts here that are anything but.
I'm starting to see that, it didn't take long.....
Corrected.... I don't see how you can say with a straight face that the defense industry is not a dominant political force. Any industry that involves that kind of money is by default. And it's not being monolithic means nothing.
How is that cut and paste any kind of an answer to the question?

"Fact: Bases are not evidence of "Imperialism" Governor Generals are." Show me one with that many bases around the world. "Fact: America has historically been isolationist - the opposite of "warmongers" " That all ended last century. "Fact: Military Industrial Complex - fantasy. The military have almost uniformly opposed military action, and the defense industry is neither a monolithic nor a dominant political force." The rank and file, sure. But neither they or the brass decide when we use our military.
Isn't that what always happens? After a while don't you have to ask yourself why we start knowing the end result is never what we hoped?
