4. As a vet who served in Central America in the 80's
This is the most ignorant idea I've heard out of the Pentagon in awhile. The death squads and the contras were not a success. They were a total failure as I remember it. We did nothing more than support a criminal enterprise.

Fuck, this shit pisses me off so much I can't even type.
