EBarnacle BS: Rally round the Trump (37) RE: BS: Rally round the Trump 12 Dec 19

One fundamental issue that barely got touched on in the above cut and past thread, was that most of the blame for terrorist actions got reassigned to national governments.
By attacking Afghanistan and Iraq we a] got involved in family fights, b] destabilized an entire region of the world and c] gave legitimacy to non-state actors.
Any police officer will tell you that family fights are the most dangerous calls they routinely get.
Qadaffi was never a good guy but he was a stabilizing influence in the Muslim world.
I refer you to Aesop's fable of Hercules and the Hydra.
PS, the various security agencies are a part of the Executive Branch of our government, which is why Congress is entitled to exercise oversight on them.
