Undoubtedly the protests on Sunday in Tehran, Iran will bring the warmongers out of the wood work calling for an invasion to not only rid Iran of nuclear weapon material, but also, to relieve the people of Iran of their terrible dictator. It comes as no surprise to me, and military action has already been considered, that a full-out invasion would be conducted with no real goals and no end in sight.
Let us not forget that the Constitution makes no room for nation building or undeclared wars. Not only that, its not our place to be the “policeman of the world”. If the U.S. Government considers President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad such a threat, then maybe Marques and Reprisal found in Article 1, Section 8, Paragraph 11 of the Constitution would be more fitting.
To combat terrorism the United States thinks that it is more fitting to occupy countries in an attempt to change a nation’s culture. An attempt that ultimately slows down our anti-terror campaign, turns people against us, and in reality does not make this country anymore safer.
