“It is clear that many have come to view our foreign wars less in the vein of national security and more in the role of humanitarian support. And when presented with images of such suffering it is easy to see why many feel compelled to intervene. But while the intentions of these would-be do-gooders might come from genuine concern, war, and particularly American wars, have a horrible track record of defending and upholding human rights. For the sake of space, let’s just examine the past two decades of US interventionism and its ramifications.” (08/26/21)
