On a grander scale, look at how the US addresses situations with third world countries. The US has spent 100 BILLION dollars each year for the last ten years, to "win" in Afghanistan. A lot of that one trillion dollars went to tribal leaders in an attempt to buy their support of the US imposed government. In other words they hired some Afghans to kill their fellow Afghans for the US. And now the fascist state is turning on the money pump in the Ukraine in an effort to kill off anyone that won't support the US position. Hiring one half of the people to kill off the other half is very common.
But of course the US can't afford universal health care for its denizens. I would have said citizens, but it is an election year and the right-wing element needs the Hispanic support so any benefits now will cover every person, dog and cat in sight. And working amerikans will pay for these giveaways.
Do you remember the good old days when wars were fought between two countries. Let's look at wars that the US participated in since WW II. The Korean War(a civil war), The Vietnam War(a civil war to "stop the domino effect"), The war in Nicaragua(a civil war), and the second war in Iraq(a civil war that didn't even exist at the time of the invasion). The first war with Iraq did actually involve a second country(Kuwait). And now of course, the Ukraine where this time another power/country is involved. And do you notice that this time the US is fighting a physical war. Very interesting.
Do you notice something in common with all of these wars. They all involved the US imposing its will on a third world country. Mind control and setting up a system where one half of the working class can kill the other half of the working class that won't support the amerikan imposed government. A second combative country is never involved.
