no more wars.
Since the disastrous invasion of Iraq, our leaders have gotten our country involved in an endless entanglement in the middle east that has cost TRILLIONS of dollars, hundreds of thousands of civilian's lives, the lives of American military, and destabilized an entire region.
If we are ever going to have a successful foreign policy, we must first be wise enough to reexamine the last 15 years and recognize that our imperialism, our thirst for oil money, and our desire to have power over resources that do not belong to us has created misery all over the globe through the rise of insurgent terrorism, innocent refugee civilians that are forced into miserable living conditions, veterans with serious physical and mental ailments, and a sinking economy.
It's time to reevaluate our tactics, put the drones, bombs, and planes away, and try reaching across the table. Peace is not created overnight, but violence does not create peace at all. Instead of investing money in more weapons, let's invest money in rebuilding the communities we destroyed, and create allies whose future generations will want to stand with America, not against us.
What We Can achieve...
- Stepping away from the military industrial complex that provides weapons to unstable regions.
- Work with our allies to create a diplomatic plan that will focus on creating peace, not regime changes.
- Make sure that every veteran always has access to healthcare and resources, regardless of their active status.
- Accepting refugees created by our wars with welcoming arms and love so we do not create another generation of terrorists.
