    That's exactly what the US did when they attacked Iraq as retaliation for 9/11.

    The military does not launch any attack on its own. It always acts at the behest of the civilian leadership, as a projection of the ambitions of the polity, or to defend it from exterior threats.

    As such, when a people are capable of electing lunatics such as Bush and Cheney to power, with their retinue of addle-brained dreamers, you risk getting your worst nightmare becoming reality, since you weren't paying attention as they lied.
    That's the price of democracy. There's no inherent guarantee that you'll get wise leaders, and visions can soon turn into delusions.
