During the Vietnam war there was a song by Country Joe & the Fish (he sang it at Woodstock) called, "The Fixing to Die Rag," the chorus went like this: "And it's, 1, 2, 3, what are we fighting for / Don't ask me, I don't give a damn / Next stop is Vietnam."
President Bush said it was because Saddam had weapons of mass destruction, which turned out to be a lie. He also said we had to go into Afghanistan to get the Boogy-Man Osama Bin Laden, who was allegedly responsible for 9-11. (I believe 911 was a set-up or False Flag to get U$A into war.)
So what do U think the real reasons for Iraq & Afghanistan were?
Me: I think we went into Afghanistan for minerals recently discovered there, an oil pipeline and because, after we lost Vietnam and the Golden Triangle, Heroin production moved to Mexico but then Afghanistan.
Iraq was a war for Israel & oil. May also have been because Saddam wanted to trade oil in Euros instead of USD. Bush thinks he will go down in history as saving western civilization from high oil prices due to Peak Oil. Saddam was Israel's #1 enemy.
I'd say our reasons for Libya were similar to Iraq with the exception that Libya (Gadaffi) believed in eliminating money and in unifying Africa, I read that he also wanted to set up a currency backed by gold that would trade for oil.
I'd love to hear from some Iraq/Afghanistan veterans.
