And we don't pay a price for this war that we have to feel daily. In WWII, my parents learned to do without driving to save gas for the war effort and learned to love beef tongue because it was a meat that wasn't rationed. Today only the families of the soldiers have to live with a gnawing anxiety brought by our wars. We'll all pay over time, in crumbling infrastructure and worldwide collapse of any benefit of the doubt for the United States good intentions.
Perhaps we are becoming a "normal country." I think many will be surprised by what they have lost.
