Neo-con hawks and their ratings-chasing media ghouls always assert that military intervention is the correct response to foreign policy disputes.

They never bother to justify what they demand, they only snidely, sneeringly assert the inevitability of their position.
Happened when this disaster started, happened every time anyone suggested reducing our footprint in Afghanistan, is happening right now as they throw their tantrum and blame everyone but themselves for this 20 year fiasco. Happened in Vietnam. Happened in Iraq (wait till someone finally gets us out of that mess and it's more complicated than calling an Uber to go home).
