1. The FBI won't do shit.
Want to bet?

Here we have a clear breach of justice and the completely corrupt FBI won't do a thing about the completely corrupt police force. Yet we feel the need to invade other countries and tell them how they need justice and human rights. What a country!

2. That's what they tell the population the invasion is about it.
I doubt it ever is the real reason.

We're partnering in TPP with the Sultan of Brunei, for f*ck's sake.

Bushco's supporters would give Saddam's badness as a reason to war with Iraq, even though Iraq turned out not to have WMD's. I would use the Sultan of Brunei as my example of evil incarnate that we were not pestering, let alone executing.

Now, a Democratic President has us partnering with the S of B, fast track, no less.

Yeah, I don't think we feel a need to invade other countries for justice and human rights. I think the USG feels a need to cloak it's motives in socially acceptable bullshit to get taxpayers and 18 year old military to sit still for their fricking wars.

Sorry. This morning may not be the best time for me to discuss anything bigger in scope than what's for lunch.

3. Of course it's not the real reason.
Flawed ulterior motives are always the real reason.
