13. You meant to say, you applaud the "spoils of war," don't you?
Beware of what you wish for!

Americans were foolish enough to support a bunch of religious fanatics in their jihad against a socialist government in Afghanistan. It only created the Taliban and Osama bin Laden!

Americans were even more foolish in keeping US forces in Saudi Arabia to prop up the corrupt monarchy, and protect the oil. It only created Al-Qaeda and led to 9/11.

Imperialism is always wrong, and this particular version will do no one any good, particularly American interests in the region.
