George Galloway makes an excellent point here.
The very same people who say that we have to stay in Afghanistan to fight al-Qaeda which they failed to eliminate from the country after spending over $2 trillion to occupy it for 20 years supported al-Qaeda against Gaddafi in Libya and Assad in Syria. The Pentagon, Israel and the “intelligence community” will never stop meddling in and destabilizing these countries and arming these groups.
What do our humanitarian imperialists in the State Department who care so much for Afghan women have to show for their efforts? What did they unleash in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Gaza and Libya? What did they nurture in their “allies” like Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Egypt and the Gulf states? How is the sum of their efforts in the region not a cultural disaster, an economic disaster, a national security disaster, a humanitarian disaster and even a foreign policy disaster for the Empire?
Note: Lil’ Marco tried to pull a Libya on Venezuela during the Trump administration.
