I wonder how many U.S. soldiers who died in Iraq, or have who lost arms or legs or mental stability from their invasion or occupation of the country, figured that the reason they were making such an enormous sacrifice was so that Iraq could ultimately get to the point where it would be helping Iran secretly avoid the economic sanctions that the U.S. government has placed on Iran.
What a glorious thing to die for. What a noble thing to become a paraplegic for. What a grand thing to lose your mind over.
