Rachel Maddows book Dirt is an interesting look at the history of the US military and the ever present need for the brass' need to be at war. We have been in one conflict or another since Viet Nam - think about.

How much of it was really in the national interest of US citizens and protecting our way of life?
It's about power and greed and the lobbyists for the defense contractors.
It's not a criticism of the servicemen but of the powers that be and their insatiable need for conflict.

If Rachel Madcow said the sun was going to come up I would have my doubts. No one hates war more than the military. It is easy to arm chair quarterback long after the situation. We have no vital interest in Syria. We had vital interest in Vietnam, Iraq,and Afghanistan.

Tony. Having weavers in my ancestry, was wondering if the silk weavers would be affected by any of the closures, although a
different process imagine they worked alongside the cotton weavers?
Probably not as their raw material did not come from the southern states of the USA. However, all hand weavers were being hit but mechanisation and the Industrial Revolution by the end of the 1700s - the Luddites were a reaction to this, although they did centre around cotton and wool rather than silk. Silk weaving was more specialised and had far fewer involved in it - the cost of silk ensured that. Btw, did you know that the mulberry trees planted behind the Bank of England for the silk worms are still there? My father showed them to me as a boy when he Took me up to his office.

Yes but they were forced to defend them by the Seato treaty. Never fight a war you don't plan to win in the most direct way possible. Bombing jungle didn't work to well. LBJ was known to change the bomb loads from the white house. We never took out the power grid and damns
