If we go in, overthrow their dictator, help them set up a repersentational govt and get it fairly peaceful...THEY OWE US military bases and access to oil.
In WW II with our Marshall Plan we got bases we needed for awhile and those bases kept the ruskies at bay. the problem now is we enter “wars” and expect nothing in return.
The way to end this War on Terror is to take over Saudi arabia overnight; set up our bases, take the oil , sell it to the russians and chinese at low prices and take the money to build up our country and military. If we are at risk by these Mooslims, then do what we did with the Japanese and the Nazis.
We had momentum after 9/11, no doubt. But we lost it. Now what? Best we can do is to retreat from that part of the World and take out terrorists by drones.
