Since 1980, we have militarily intervened at least 35 times in more than 27 countries. We keep bombing, we continue spending trillions of dollars, but we're no safer as a result. WATCH MORE.

Because perpetual war fuels terrorism.
And yet, President Obama now has the same plan for Iraq and Syria.
We've tried arming "friendly" rebels before. We armed the Mujahideen in Afghanistan to fight the Soviets. They later became Al Qaeda and the Taliban, who not only attacked us, but terrorized their own people.
We ramped up strikes in Yemen in 2009. Since then, the country has seen MORE terrorist attacks, not fewer.
When we only respond with military force today, we create tomorrow's enemy. The kid whose house was bombed by an American drone will grow up to hate America. Maybe one day he'll fight against us.
Perpetual war does not make us safer. Share this because President Obama needs to stop and think. How does this End?
