That's the typical justification for our unconstitutional war in the Middle East. But in spite of (or, more likely, because of) our actions in Iraq, al Qaeda leaders are gaining new recruits and are once again setting their sights on the U.S.
But how is that even possible? Wasn't Saddam removed from power to keep just this kind of thing from happening? And what about the troop surge we were all told was working?
Then again, what do I know? I'm just an ordinary citizen. I couldn't possibly understand the intricacies of international diplomacy, foreign policy, or national defense. We should simply do our part by spending and borrowing more to help the economy and leave the important stuff to those more qualified. King George will protect us from the evildoers.
