The United States should not be involved in imperialist ventures. We should not have “protectorates”, “territories”, or whatever fancy word you can come up with for what are basically colonies. This is imperialism.
This should not be confused with other actions the United States may become involved in such as just wars and temporary occupations that may result because of those wars.
And no, just for the record, the Iraq War is not an imperialist action – at least it did not start out as such as was not at the time of penning this commentary.
