Here both presidents were/are attacking and killing, often murdering in two nations, neither of which have an air force or navy, and are 12 times smaller than the USA. We are supposedly there "to root out injustice and rid them of Terrorists!"
Our troops traveled 6211 miles (9996 km) to do that and to accomplish "ridding the world of Terrorists, " where according to some figures 1.5 million people were killed, many of which were allegedly civilians.
To truly "rid the world of terrorists," they would have to kill
approximately, according to estimates of the number of "terrorists" live overseas and want to destroy our "way of Life," about 500 million humans. That is 1/12th the population of the
world, and that, I assure you is a very conservative estimate.
So far this effort has cost Americans $12.5 trillion and caused this depression. Yes, I am correct, $12.5 trillion, not one trillion or two trillion. To cause such a depression it would take an expenditure of between $11.5 trillion to $13.5 trillion. Or about 12 times the cost of a National Medicare type Health care Program. It really appears to be cheaper to help people than to kill them, costing about 1/12th as much. (There is that magic number/fraction again.)
WW II killed an estimated 40 million people, which is only
about 1/12th the number we are now going to try to kill. Notice how that
number, 1/12th, and the number 12 keeps coming up in this venture? To some Christians and Jews, the number 12 is a sacred number, a number filled with mystical intrigue.
