Why are we so willing to go to war? Is it because the US media keeps us in a state of constant fear? Is it because corporations with strong government connections make lots of money off of war? Or because politicians get a boost in their approval rating during times of war?
Why do we still think of ourselves as the world’s policeman? I think isolationism is a mistake, but we seem to err in the other direction too much. And this comic doesn’t even mention Viet Nam.
