"Americans should not go abroad to slay dragons that they do not understand in the name of spreading democracy" John Quincy Adams
Quite the prophetic statement right? I believe there was a shift however, at some point in history the objective no longer was to slay these dragons but instead to utilize them for ones benefit. They decided to befriend these monstrous creatures, feed them, nurture them, gain their trust so that these dragons could then raise havoc on their enemies. This in turn created chaos, death, destruction, and sheer misery for many people. The once unruly, devious dragons became a pet to their (American) masters, but what the masters seem to have forgotten is that... at the end of the day, these were still fire breathing monstrous creatures who can never be fully domesticated.
