Intervening to help terrorists take over Syria is embarassing and frightening. We did this in Afghanistan to defeat the Soviets and we trained Osama bin Laden and facilitated the development of al Qaeda. That wise use of tax dollars is an example of the foolishness of intervention.
Where will the money even come from? Your loss of purchasing power and dumping debt on future generations.
Never-ending recession pairs nicely with never-ending war coupled with loss of liberty.
