war we like

wars we like Do we like wars as long as it is at our doorstep the Russians fought in Afghanistan and lost hands down the USA took over this unwinnable war so far it has lasted Twelve years with no end in sight. The USA lost the Vietnam war, but Hollywood came to the rescue made movies of brave soldiers whose every bullets hit a target, yet they fled from the rooftop in Hanoi it was a sickening sight. In the meantime, the French are fighting a war against the rebellious in central Africa to defend and give the presidency to those who are most corrupt in the name of oil and precious stones and metal. The French keep their war entirely; it is not headline news. Now, the battle is coming home its fought in our streets there are no heroes here and no movie to make for now.
