Belaboring the Obvious

Okay, it's not a nice thing to bring up...

... but, when the hell has the United States ever had the slightest success at nation-building in the midst of wartime?

The correct answer?

Never. Ever.

So, why does our mainstream media keep harping on the details of that task while we're still fighting wars?

We're actually propping up two puppet governments in two different regions and pretending that we're bringing democracy to the great unwashed mass of brown people.

So, when have we successfully created an independent democracy in the midst of a war where one did not exist before? When? I can't think of a single instance. So, maybe, this nation-building talk is just bullshit and a diversion for why we're actually in places such as Iraq and Afghanistan....
