Nation building

I don’t understand why our American government insists on spending hundreds of billions of dollars on nation building in Iraq and Afghanistan. These people have been doing what they do for thousands of years, and they ain’t going to change their way of living for us. So let’s bring our troops home and have them guard our borders, and patrol the streets with our police force, and get rid of these gangs, criminals and drugs. We are wasting our resources plus our young people in places we shouldn’t be in. Let’s build up our own country before it completely crumples and we as Americans become a third world nation looking for a hand out.
