War in Pakistan has killed over sixty-five thousand people. Twenty thousand were Pakistani civilians. Bush and Obama’s drone strikes have killed over nine hundred and sixty-five civilians. The Pakistani military has killed over thirty-three thousand Wahhabi terrorists and Wahhabi terrorists have killed seven thousand Pakistani military personnel. Tehrik I Taliban, al Qaeda, Lashkar e Jhangvi. Lashkar e Islam, Jamaat ul Ahrar, Tehreek-e-Nafaz-e-Shariat-e-Mohammadi and the Turkistan Islamic party constitute an alliance engaged in internecine violence with the ISIS Khorasan unit, Jundallah and Tehreek e Khilafat form the opposing coalition in addition the aforementioned groups in both coalitions are all Wahhabi groups operating in Pakistan. Despite the fact over three million Pakistanis have been displaced the forty percent drop in violence between 2011 and 2013 was presented as success. The victims of the sixty percent of violence did not view it as success. The violent situation has bolstered support for Sindhi and Baluchistan liberation movements. Again, American violence has been an unwelcome addition to a volatile ethnic tinder box costing America nine of its military personnel their lives. This has been in tandem with the disaster in Afghanistan. The one positive is that Navy Seals took out Usama Bin Laden in Pakistan.
American drone strikes and covert military operations have killed over five hundred and seventy-eight people in Somalia with over fifty-seven of them being civilian casualties. America does not have a sterling military record in Somalia. Prior to Operation Iraqi Liberation, Black Hawk Down was the greatest mobilisation of American troops since the Vietnam War. Like the other aforementioned conflicts Black Hawk Down was a disaster and one of the darkest days in American military history. In the Battle of Mogadishu America lost eighteen soldiers while killing three hundred and fifty Somalian militants. There are those who assert five hundred Somalian militants were killed. Operation Restore Hope led to the deaths of fifty-three Americans in the 1992 Somalian War. The unsettled outcome led to the 2006 to 2009 civil war in which sixteen thousand Somalian civilians, nine hundred Somalian military personnel and 2,773 Ethiopian military personnel were killed. Eight thousand Wahhabi terrorists were killed in that war. The unsettled outcome has led to the current civil war which is ongoing. The current war has killed over ten thousand Somalian civilians, over seven hundred in the Somalian military and has led to the deaths of another eight thousand Wahhabi terrorists. It has also displaced over a million and a half Somalians. In the war territory map Somalian government is red, Somaliland government is yellow, Khatumo state is green and Wahhabi terrorist alliance of al Shabaab, al Qaeda and ISIS is black.
To conclude America cannot afford to keep making these mistakes. A state that is in twenty-two trillion dollars of debt cannot keep spending over $1.7 trillion on ill thought out wars like they did in Iraq with Operation Iraqi Liberation. American cannot afford to keep spending over seventy billion on proxies like it did with Wahhabi terrorists in Syria. Establishment politicians in America keep proposing the unpopular ideas that Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security all must be cut to balance American federal budgets. This is simply not true as the chart of discretionary spending in America since 1976 shows. The fact is that if the majority of unnecessary discretionary military spending was cut all three aforementioned programs could be funded for decades to come. To summarise American people cannot afford to let their imperial government to continue wasting their money on wars against people who did nothing to deserve such gratuitous violence.
