Germany did not start ww2.  England and France declared war om Germany.  You should amit it when you are wrong.
The German National Socialists started it. And, they invaded France. You think the French should have remained neutral after they were invaded?

I know you hate that England held out and the U.S. entered the war, so the Nazis were defeated before they had a chance to kill all the Jews...

The lead in:

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has approved an expanded military mission to secure an expanse of oil fields across eastern Syria, raising a number of difficult legal questions about whether U.S. troops can launch strikes against Syrian, Russian or other forces if they threaten the oil, U.S. officials said.

This push towards US Military expansion in Syria is not good.

We have plenty of oil right here in the US.  There's no reason to put US troops in harm's way for oil.

Yep.  We need to stop shackling domestic energy exploration and let the rest of the world deal with their own energy needs

How would unshackling domestic energy exploration cut us off from world markets?

Right, I don't want our military securing oil production in other countries for the rest of the world.  Figures you would want the military to do that.

If we were an energy exporter, we wouldn't need to net import energy.  Se how that works?  You don't, do you?

Yep, I see that you want the government to control both imports and exports of oil, and probably coal and natural gas too.

As to the military control crap, no. I prefer free markets in everything. Smiley
