Wagging the dog

Our ignominious defeat in Afghanistan will generate more ill-advised decisions. Example: Our narcissistic, self-congratulatory “leaders,” and the military industry they support, won’t be able to accept our new, reduced international status.

So they’ll invent another unnecessary, bloody, deadly, costly war somewhere else that we “have to fight.” Americans will die. Squillions wasted. Wash. Repeat.
