30 Years Ago, Three Days of The Condor laid it out: it’s you and I that required the Iraq War.

A well-paid computer-savvy civilian with an attractive girlfriend who works for a secret US government department realizes his agency is up to no good, is regarded as threat & spy by US. On the run, he outs his government to protect himself & the nation he loves. No, not Edward Snowden & the NSA.

There’s a reason our government, again and again, invades the Middle East like >snap< that…but fails to intervene in Tibet and other nations that are victimized by bigger powers. And who does the blame lie with? At least partially, you and I.
