(TNS) Reflecting on the days immediately after the 9/11 attacks when many of us here at TNS heard President George W. Bush telling our citizens that the “Global War on Terror” was going to be multi-generational, we didn’t think much about it.

Terrorism and terrorists have been around for decades, so it was going to take some time to get rid of all that shit, right?
And besides, most Americans at the time were like, “Let’s go fuck up some people who just attacked us.”
Well, here we are, approaching two decades later –Â still in Afghanistan,Â still in Iraq, and mired in other Middle East conflicts in one shithole after another.
Then along comes Donald Trump. He wins the presidency and he does it, in part, by promising to extract our troops from those very same shitholes where they have been for nearly two decades.
And when he makes good on at least one of those promises — taking our forces completely out of Syria — you’d have thought the fucking world ended.
What Bush actually was selling was more of the same ‘New World Order’ globalist bullshit his daddy sold us after the first Gulf War: Perpetual meddling in one nation’s affairs after another under the guise of ‘fighting terrorism’ or ‘spreading democracy.’
That’s the same shit the British tried to do when their empire was so vast the sun never set on it.
Americans are sick and fucking tired of sending our military into ever dung heap country on the planet for one reason or another. And what’s more, they are tired of hearing our political leaders shill for perpetual war.
So is Trump. In comments Tuesday, he verbally bitch-slapped an ally, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), for bitching about pulling out 28 or 50 U.S. troops that remained in Syria, depending upon which report you read — a deployment that began several years ago under Obama and was supposed to beÂ over in 30 days.
Meanwhile, Graham hasn’t held one goddamned hearing — notÂ one — to get the bottom of Spygate: Who launched it, who was involved in it, and what roles they played on behalf of Obama — like he promised he would when he took over the Senate Judiciary Committee last January.
That, too, has not escaped the president’s attention.
“Lindsey Graham would like to stay in the Middle East for the next 1,000 years with thousands of soldiers and fighting other peopleâ€™s wars. I want to get out of the Middle East,” Trump said.
“I think Lindsey should focus right now on Judiciary. He ought to find out with what happened to Comey, with what happened to McCabe, with Lisa, what happened with Peter Strzok, what happened with President Obama, what happened with Brennan. Thatâ€™s what Lindsey ought to focus on,” Trump continued.
“Thatâ€™s what the people of South Carolina want him to focus on. The people of South Carolina donâ€™t want to get us in a war with Turkey, a NATO member, or Syria. Let them fight their own wars.”
