Rep. John J. Duncan, writing in the American Conservative tells readers “it has been a horrible mistake to spend trillions on unnecessary wars in the Middle East.”
Rep. Duncan continues Eisenhower “famously warned us at the end of his Presidency about the dangers of being controlled by a very powerful military-industrial complex.”
In conclusion John Duncan writes “Robert Taft, who was sometimes referred to as Mr. Republican in the 1940s and ‘50s, once said, ‘No foreign policy can be justified except a policy devoted… to the protection of the liberty of the American people, with war only as the last resort and only to preserve that liberty.'”
I doubt that Mr. Republican would look at what is going on with America’s ongoing involvement in a Shia/Sunni religious war as having much to do with preserving the the liberty of the American people.
