Why do we stir up trouble in foreign countries when we can't even run our own? 

This is Peter Hitchens’ s Mail on Sunday column

What a twisted society we have become. We stir up wars in other people's countries and praise ourselves for doing it.

But there is no political reward for protecting our own people against crime and disorder on their streets and in their homes. It is no longer clear if anyone is governing the country at all, so busy are we putting other nations to rights.

Burglaries go unprevented, uninvestigated and unpunished, in colossal numbers. Our capital city seethes with uncontrolled knife crime and stinks of marijuana.

GOOD POINTS:

"So why? And why are nouns now used as verbs (or 'verbed', as they say)? On Friday I heard a broadcaster use 'foreground' as a verb. Let me also foreground this: when and why was every new government policy announcement treated like the unveiling of a new aircraft, and 'rolled out'?"

The Military became a financially business, up to this day not everyone knows it.

When the USA sank up to its waist in the bloody mud of Vietnam in the 1960s, the whole world was at odds. Once again, now that the truth is revealed, we know that thousands of brave men died, and many more thousands of innocent civilians were killed, because of a mistake.

 THERE YOU GO!

On to personal experience.

MORE WARS FOR THE INDUSTRY
[U.S. troops are being told to prepare for an all-out war with Russia as tensions continue to mount between Washington and Moscow. The U.S.’s 101st Airborne Division has been deployed to Romania for the first time in 80 years.]

Customary business for the weaponry and its industry, yes that's true!

The routine keeps on giving!  skull

Peter Hitchens always makes sense and asks a few "why this or that?" - makes everyone think deeply .

World war 3 getting closer?

Very well known fact, is that the Super Power leading rulers want the extermination of any country that doesn't follow their rules, this has to globally change.
