What makes us different than we were during and after WWII?

Reader comment on item: Minimize Middle East Mistakes

Submitted by Lynn (United States), Dec 22, 2016 at 09:24

Germany did not want us there nor did Japan and yet we stayed and are still present there. Iraq could not be allowed to succeed since the Democrats ran on the platform of former President Bush being a total failure and our allies agreed. Afghanistan could not succeed because that is exactly where the Islamist's wanted to take the fight where it could be bogged down in an eternal grinding defeat as it was for Russia.

We have turned over and exposed our soft underbelly as a kingdom divided against itself and the critics spend their time tsk tsking over our body exclaiming on how we failed yet still rely on us to keep standing in an area of the world that eats its young and chews at the bone of hatred fed to their populace each and every day. Is it possible the solution is no solution because eternal conflict has a life that needs to be fed and it has chosen the Middle East for it's home? What also lives there that so interests it?

We know the answer because for many it is the center of the world. The deceiver must make us fail in spirit because it is the only thing worth fighting for. The only thing that can win against total evil is total good and we fail every time. We need to pray.
