54. Here's the thing: We did not protect them before.

That was not why we went there in the first place. Before us, the Russians were there. Before the Russians, it was someone else. After us, who can say who will go there? Whoever does will not succeed. The problem is societal, tribal, and religious in nature.

Societies must correct themselves internally. Trying to force them to change rarely works, and especially in that region. We waste our time, money, and lives attempting to do that. Underlying all of it is religion. There, the religion is Islam, which has reactionary cults that keep women under male thumbs. Religion may have some good effects on civilization, but those are often overridden by the harmful effects religion has.
