    The difference being that those two were pounded into the earth and rebuilt from brownfield. More or less.

    Taiwan, too. And Pinochet-era Chile. All modeled after the way the US handled the Banana Republics.

    Our nation-building track record is pretty awful. You can still see it today in the Philippines, where Duetere is basically a brown Trump.

    I guess you could say Germany and Japan turned out pretty well?
    I mean, when your standards are "Not Communist" you usually end up with dictators.

    Sort of like how the Crusades were used to get rid of extra knights who were causing problems back home, I suppose a new crusade could solve our problems too.

    In case you’re wondering why people are going on TV relentlessly attacking Biden for his courageous decision to leave Afghanistan when no other president would, here’s one glimpse as to why. War is addictive for the few who reap its profits, while the rest of us foot the bill.
