Billions of dollars have been spent on the continued conflict in Syria.
There are many activities that we engage in all the time, every day, and objects that we encounter in our everyday lives, that we should more readily fear than terrorism. The risk doesn’t warrant the considerable amount of time and resources that has been spent on warfare overseas. Especially when the agency that’s tasked with supposedly attempting to resolve the issue, has been found to be partially responsible for helping to create and fuel the problem in the first place.
The conflict in Syria has been going on now for years, to the point that many agencies have allegedly ceased their record keeping when it comes to the loss of life in the region.
According to a previous United Nations estimate, it’s suggested that more than 400,000 people have already lost their life because of this war.
Over 400,000+ people killed who had husbands, wives, children, brothers, sister, mothers, and fathers. Billions of dollars spent, without any clear or suggested exit plan. And the rulers continue to tell the people who are paying the cost out of their own pocket, that the purchase is necessary and justified.
On the news we see that there have been alleged terror attacks in a variety of regions around the world, and they’ll have us believe that we won’t be safe until U.S. leaders can inflict their “democracy” on the entire world.
However, what the current foreign policy does is promote a wide range of problems; they make a situation worse that they allegedly want to try to help. And the people have been shown on numerous occasions that they cannot rely on the government to respect their private property rights, because they’ll easily wave anyone off as justified collateral damage if they get in the way.
Our rulers continue to charge forward with an unapologetic foreign policy that is effectively bankrupting the nation in more ways than one.
