in response to reader comment: Turkiye's Ambitions Fully Revealed - Satiated

The longer the theaters of incursions in the Ukraine and Syria continue to fester the innate desires of empire on the part of the invading parties, the appearance of any relief any time soon dissipates and replacement clouds of expended munitions seen in satellite imagery over cratered military sites seems to indicate that all fronts are still intending to exttract their desired results. Who will pay?
Certainly, billions of dollars in United States support is rushing into the Ukraine, but what of the status of American support in Syria and Iraq as those issues fester even deeper and little in the way of achieving peace is seen. It's Afghanistan all over again, is it not(?); and where are the true American interests there?
A misunderstood mistake has been made there; how long before it becomes irretrievable and the American taxpayer foots even a bigger cost no one approved to be spent except those who lied for their avarice.
