Endless wars has become a popular refrain among some vets

Trump’s Opposition to ‘Endless Wars’ Appeals to Those Who Fought Them

A majority of veterans regret the wars fought after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. President Trump and Congress are listening.
The Iraq war was the result of the CIA's bad intelligence on weapons of mass destruction.  While critics of the war have been quick to blame Bush and Cheney, the war was seen as a needed response to the intelligence they were provided by the CIA. 

The Obama administration went from one strategic blunder to the next first releasing terrorist like the leader of ISIS and then retreating from Iraq leading to genocide on a large scale.  The Libyan debacle followed pushed by both Hillary Clinton and Obama. That debacle led to the release of weapons which were never secured after the downfall of Ghadaffi because Obama would not commit the troops to do so. This wound up arming more terrorists and more genocide.

Since coming into office Trump unleashed the military which led to the destruction of the ISIS caliphate and he has now ordered attacks which led to the death of the leadership of this Islamic terror cult.

The war in Afghanistan was mismanaged by Obama who ordered a surge of forces that was undercut by his simultaneously telling the enemy the withdrawal date of those forces.  That war effort has suffered from the failure of Pakistan which provided a sanctuary for the terrorist and corruption within Afghanistan.
