I often hear from Iraq and Afghanistan vets that they fought for our freedom. Where is the logic there? The war with Afghanistan was to remove the Taliban. Now there is more Taliban than there was before Afghanistan was invaded. The war with Iraq was to control their oil fields and install a more American friendly government (officially it was to "remove weapons of mass destruction"). Yet the product of the war in Iraq was ISIS who killed and tortured countless victims. Both these wars have created a whole new generation of fanatics hell bent on destroying the west who will likely kill many Americans in the future. So how exactly did these vets "fight for our freedom"?
