Is the war in the mid-east worth it?? I feel like we in th US need to think about this issue. We are not there for weapons of mass destruction or to liberate the people. Thats what they tell us so we will feel good about going to war. The world is coming to a dangerous point with natural resources. Russia trying to claim Antartica and Canada building bases on the north pole. Both trying to gain a foothold for energy. We are going for Iraq and Iran for it Oil. Once we have it we will be able to control China's growth in the oncoming years. We will also have military bases to strike at others from that location. It also will keep the US and its economy in good shape in the next 50 years. We lived a blessed life in the US but we live it at the expense of others. We are on top now and will do what ever it takes to stay on top. Should we continue??? If not us than who?? China maybe??
