I think america has to fight a bloody bloody war every couple of decades to remind them that war isnt the answer. I think everybody has to agree with that. Look at the beginning of the iraq war. Everybody was gung ho. Saying it would be a cake walk. You had die hard republicans calling anybody who was against the war a traitor. You even had death threats. People who said anything negative, even about how much it would cost, was given death threats and called a traitor. Now flash foward a few years later. Where are all of the gung ho americans? Where are all of those people who made death threats and called people traitors. I think after more then 2200 deaths, thousands of american soldiers permanately injured, over 60 thousand iraqi civilian deaths * the ones even worth reporting*, 10's of thousands of iraqi civilians injured, a country ravaged, and over 600 billion wasted, the American public has finally realized war isnt easy or even an answer. I think this pictuer below explains why war isnt the answer.
