The U.S. federal government has given the American public a solid one-two punch with its foreign military interventions. First American taxpayers are on the hook for TRILLIONS of dollars with the destruction and destabilization of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria.
All spectacular failures. No exceptions.
These spectacular failures caused countless deaths and human suffering. For those who were lucky enough to survive, they've naturally decided to run away from their homes to find a place that wasn't being being burned to a crisp. Millions of refugees and migrants have become yet another unintended (at least we assume it was unintended) consequence of the wars.
Next comes the second punch to the American taxpayer gut. The refugees that have come to the United States now receive welfare. Fox Business has the stats:
And what does the panel on Fox Business have to say about this one-two punch?
"America is very generous...This show's America's generosity."
Don't they realize what has been done?
There is no positive spin that can be placed on this story of destruction, displacement of innocent foreigners, and milking of the American taxpayer.
If a mugger on the street robs a bunch of little old ladies, do we compliment his "generosity" when he gives the stolen loot to his sick uncle? Do we block out the theft and just focus on the mugger giving the money to his uncle? Do we praise him as the most generous mugger on Earth?
It's time to knock it off with this ridiculous notion of America running the world by destroying it.
