Over the past two decades, the United States government have spent trillions of dollars for military operations in the Middle East. Recalling February 27th, President Donald Trump stated at a White House meeting that he wanted to win wars again. He increased the military spending for the operations in the Middle East, insisting to “start winning wars again.”

President Trump’s “must win wars again,” statement seemed to indicate a possible future with this particular incident.To elaborate, it's more about the speculation of escalating into war than winning a war. It may seem melodramatic to presume, but current ties with Russia and United States are not looking well.

Several days ago, the United States fired tomahawk missiles at Syria in response to Assad’s chemical weapon’s attacks on Syrians citizens, including children and infants. The target was a military airfield in Homs.

As Commander-in-Chief, Trump made the decision on Syria due to the images of children that were infected with this incident. The president reversed his response of the United States staying out of Middle East conflict and is hypocritical with the travel ban upon Syrian refugees. It is hard to tell how Russia may react to this event.

Russia has been allied with Assad Regime with its six-year civil war, criticizing the United States government's decision as a violation of international law. Russia's government is heavily resenting the U.S. for its attack, not for attacking its associate ally, but 100 Russian troops were in proximity of the attack, which the U.S. gave out a notification.

The United Nations are in sessions regarding the incident, with Russia and Syria denouncing the incident, while the U.S. and other allies from Europe, Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia agreed with the U.S. decision upon the chemical attack.

Let’s also not forget the scandal referring of Russia interfering with the Presidential Election, which has been an ongoing investigation. A contemplation that has viewers shifted on the airstrike attacks and without Russia's cooperation for the scandal, it could put the investigation to a halt.

Besides the feud, Trump had a summit with Chinese President Xi Jiping with discussions regards on how to contain the dictating North Korea. One of the biggest stress from this Communist country is its non-stop nuclear warhead and missile tests.

CNN reported recently that a U.S. naval aircraft carrier group is heading towards the Korean Peninsula, which was confirmed by U.S. defense official. The news report indicates having this carrier to operate in that area is uncommon. Speculation is that the aircraft carrier is pressing onward to the Korea region, whether it is a scare tactic or defensive measures to intimidate North Korea. North Korea’s regime is known to be unpredictable.

These political matters are reaching to more on the military branch, displaying and unraveling controversial military operations that are conflicting powerful nations. The presumptions and constant reporting are only going to cerebrate. Ever since Trump spoke about winning more wars, his executive powers have now switch to militaristic activity.

I know I don't say it enough, so let me start off by saying thank you.

You'll never understand how incredibly blessed I am to have you in my life. You'll also never understand how special you are to me and how much I love you.

I can't thank you enough for countless days and nights at your house venting, and never being too busy when I need you. Thank you for the shopping days and always helping me find the best deals on the cutest clothes. For all the appointments I didn't want to go to by myself. Thank you for making two prom days and a graduation party days I could never forget. Thank you for being overprotective when it comes to the men in my life.

Most importantly, thank you for being my support system throughout the numerous highs and lows my life has brought me. Thank you for being honest even when it isn't what I want to hear. Thank you for always keeping my feet on the ground and keeping me sane when I feel like freaking out. Thank you for always supporting whatever dream I choose to chase that day. Thank you for being a second mom. Thank you for bringing me into your family and treating me like one of your own, for making me feel special because you do not have an obligation to spend time with me.

You've been my hero and role model from the time you came into my life. You don't know how to say no when family comes to you for help. You're understanding, kind, fun, full of life and you have the biggest heart. However, you're honest and strong and sometimes a little intimidating. No matter what will always have a special place in my heart.

There is no possible way to ever thank you for every thing you have done for me and will continue to do for me. Thank you for being you.

8 Types Of People Fetuses Grow Into That 'Pro-Lifers' Don't Give 2.5 Shits About

It is easy to fight for the life of someone who isn't born, and then forget that you wanted them to be alive when you decide to hate their existence.

For those in support of the #AbortionBans happening all over the United States, please remember that the unborn will not always be a fetus — he or she may grow up to be just another person whose existence you don't support.

The fetus may grow up to be transgender — they may wear clothes you deem "not for them" and identify in a way you don't agree with, and their life will mean nothing to you when you call them a mentally unstable perv for trying to use the bathroom.

The fetus may grow up to be gay — they may find happiness and love in the arms of someone of the same gender, and their life will mean nothing to you when you call them "vile" and shield your children's eyes when they kiss their partner.

The fetus may grow up and go to school — to get shot by someone carrying a gun they should have never been able to acquire, and their life will mean nothing to you when your right to bear arms is on the line.

The fetus may be black — they may wear baggy pants and "look like a thug", and their life will mean nothing to you when you defend the police officer who had no reason to shoot.

The fetus may grow up to be a criminal — he might live on death row for a heinous crime, and his life will mean nothing to you when you fight for the use of lethal injection to end it.

The fetus may end up poor — living off of a minimum wage job and food stamps to survive, and their life will mean nothing to you when they ask for assistance and you call them a "freeloader" and refuse.

The fetus may end up addicted to drugs — an experimentation gone wrong that has led to a lifetime of getting high and their life will mean nothing to you when you see a report that they OD'd and you make a fuss about the availability of Narcan.

The fetus may one day need an abortion — from trauma or simply not being ready, and her life will mean nothing to you as you wave "murderer" and "God hates you" signs as she walks into the office for the procedure.

Do not tell me that you are pro-life when all of the above people could lose their lives in any way OUTSIDE of abortion and you wouldn't give 2.5 shits.

You fight for the baby to be born, but if he or she is gay or trans, you will berate them for who they are or not support them for who they love.

You fight for the baby to be born, but if he or she is poor or addicted, you will refuse the help they desperately need or consider their death a betterment of society.

You fight for the baby to be born, but when the used-to-be-classroom-of-fetuses is shot, you care more about your access to firearms than their lives.

It is easy to pretend you care about someone before they are even born, and easy to forget their birth was something you fought for when they are anything other than what you consider an ideal person.
