Thank You for Your Killing – The Future of Freedom Foundation

Yet, there is one glaring fact about the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan: They have nothing to do with protecting our country or our freedom. They never have. That’s because neither Iraq nor Afghanistan has ever attacked or invaded the United States and tried to conquer our country. As a practical matter, that’s the only way they could take away our freedom.

What then is the real service that U.S. troops have performed and continue to perform in Iraq and Afghanistan for which people express gratitude?

Killing people. That’s what U.S. soldiers have been doing in Iraq since 1990 and in Afghanistan since 2003. They have been killing people. Lots of people. Hundreds of thousands of people. And they continue to do so on a regular basis.
But all those hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children’s deaths were worth it to quote Madeline Albright.

Be seeing you
