US foreign policy no longer about defending freedom

Freedom and the inferior Islamic ideology don't mix. We should not try to envoke freedom on those who love to be slaves.

Never been about freedom. There’s no freedom under a Fringed Flag that represents no nation and no constitution.

NATO serves nothing but to enrich the MIC at the cost of political and economic destabilization overseas, creating new threats of which none come close to American soil – do you expect welfare EU states to pay more for that?

Wars do have values such as all the crazy people who want to kill another person. The Middle East is full of the same kinds of killers. Who then come together and kill each other off and the world is a safer place without so many killers in our city's😄👍

US foreign policy no longer about defending freedom So? You going to do something about it? LOL

US foreign policies were never about defending freedom right from the beginning, it was to install political regimes friendly to American interests at the level of corporations and financial institutions with a US flavour attached to it. Stop dreaming people, time to wake up to what is called reality with a big R like capitalism with a big C.

So pretty much the same tactic that the Romans used to make their people believe that by conquering the barbarians they were bringing civility and culture to them because they're backward.
Yeah no that tactic is one of the longest-running justifications for domination since the dawn of civilization.

Meanwhile back, in reality, people find out it was never about helping people at all but used as a tactic to play on people's emotion and to corrupt the nature of helping into a profit making scheme.

In the words of Lord Helmet from Spaceballs……………..FOOOOOOOOLED YOUUUUUUU.

Industrial? More like Military-Genocide-Complex. Much of the real purpose is investing billions in obedient men who will unquestioningly kill other humans when the government tells them to.

America backed and committed many regime changes which made many countries worse. America backed the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. Pol pot was a crazy person killing his own people and America backed him!
