    Something in south/Central America

    we can cite some Monroe doctrine **** or terror excuse or “stability” and of course “helping the people”

    closer and more logistically feasible . Sell on the news immigrants that are in our army .

    Sell it as a “joint operation” to clean out the cartels . We love joint operations .

    Help the crisis at our border .

    At some point, people are going to wise up and realize that all those soldiers are NOT fighting for our freedoms, they are fighting for billionaires profits.

    They have been fooled by being so gullible.

    will a country with 70 million Trumpers and more racists wise up??
    No. never. The next war is near, just waiting for the orders from Israel.

    The next Republican president (unfortunately, there will be one in the future...at some point) will start the next war at the behest of Defense Contractors, PMC's, and Oil Field Services companies (like Haliburton).

    we should do what we did in afghanistan to africa
    Take a large plot of land where they have different cultures and languages and don't relate or feel close to eachother, as long as they look close enough we can sell it as we're just instilling a democracy for peace for ideals and then our contractors or 'job creators' get wildly rich with our tax dollars, we can scream at people who don't agree for not being patriotic and maybe require everyone get flag tattoos to show our support, in a few decades when the generation changes well say whoops and head out.

    bro, have you seen clinton or bidens previous votes?
    They were hawks, clinton literally wrote her foreign policy when she ran and publicly released a letter to one man, a billionaire from israel who demanded loyalty by donations, and they gave it...
    Be it kosova, libya, iraq even before 9/11 these peopel always had a thirst of war, you goto the crime bill private prisons...its all bipartisan

    the partisan nature just gives us tv fodder to point fingers while both 'sides' don't do anything but keep thsemvles in power and keep peopel under pointing on the other side

    hope fully i think the new age of info(and misinfo) but more people have engagement and access beyond just one filter of corporate news which both pander to sides(msnbc,cnn or fox)

    This is a dumb thread, but the answer is "depends on how the world behaves"

    they've got precious minerals and potential, jut gotta look at another angle.
    Mr. bill gates is there 'feeding the world' basically choosing to force soy and corn and yield crops which ruin soil quality like it did in america, the bill gates foundation, yes the foundation, owns a lot of monstanto/bayer stock-tax free...people say its charity, don't know then or havent been to africa and see charity heads drive the compaany mercedes they just had to have, a nice building, sometimes even private jets...all written off as administrative cost

    it aint just government that can be a rackett.

    but oil
    , letsput a flag on antartica...go meet our old boys in Rusisia

    Hopefully it's nowhere near the Taiwan Strait / Pacific Rim.

    Hopefully the US has finally learned it’s lesson after trillions of dollars, thousands of lives lost, thousands more living with disabilities, PTSD, etc. with little to nothing to show for Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.

    Imagine how far ahead this country could be if we would have invested all those lives and resources into research, infrastructure, instead?

    Hopefully you will volunteer to go fight them dirty Chavistas instead of showing (lol) your support with posts or an occasional "thank you for your service" to some vet, guy or gal,who just wanted to get a job that would help pay for college, child support and provide medical insurance.

    Too much money to be made for the military industrial complex. Don't forget the news biz gets more eyeballs for a juicy war, too.
