From the website:
Today we are nearly 20 years into the 21st century and America has been at war for nearly all of them. The endless cycle of wars that began with an invasion of Afghanistan — as a follow-up to the "9/11 terrorist attacks" at the World Trade Center and Pentagon — still continue. After Afghanistan, the United States invaded Iraq in 2003 and then under the auspices of NATO, invaded Libya in 2011.  Meanwhile, the U.S. is involved in proxy wars in Syria and Yemen and is actively threatening Iran, Venezuela and North Korea.
