The idea that we have to make wars and overturn governments in the mideast in an effort to protect access to mideast oil is an easy example. There are people who think that is perfectly rational and just.... and to the OP, don't spend much time contemplating sins... "You shall not murder" apparently doesn't cross their mind.
Of course, you never answered my question... tell me which military actions since WWII (we haven't actually declared war since then) have involved a legitimate threat to the American people?
The answer to that question tells you whether we inappropriately put our service men and women in harm's way... on a regular basis.
Wish I could do that. Why don't you tell me which military threats have not involved a legitimate threat to the American people? Your confidence makes it appear you have seen intelligence most are not privileged to see.
As I said before. I have no doubt bad decisions were made. But I just don't think they were made lightly...
