The problem with Iraq was that the US couldn't see well into the future, they didn't know about the Arab Spring which would have taken Saddam out of power possibly.
Putting aside the rest of your claims, that really wasn't the problem with Iraq, and there wasn't just one.

This is categorically false. You've even provided an example yourself: sumo wrestlers do not have a massively excessive sugar intake, yet they do experience a significantly higher rate of Type 2 diabetes.
You think their 7,000 calorie diet doesn't go past the recommended daily intake of sugar?

Their diet typically overwhelmingly consists of meat, fish & vegetables in a hot-pot style dish. It's exceptionally high in calories and protein, but not typically high in sugar.

And you think after they are done wrestling they stick to the same diet?
So you're talking about retirees now, rather than sumo wrestlers? Can you just tell me where you intend to leave the goalposts and I'll hop on the train.

Do you think sumo wrestlers wrestle for the entire lives? The problem they have is after they are done wrestling and changing their diet to what a normal person would eat. This is what I've been saying from the beginning...

It's been established that sumo wrestlers-- NOT RETIREES-- have higher rates of type 2 diabetes and other metabolic health issues. This has already been attested in sources that have been provided, and this is a limp effort to shift the goalposts.

It is possible that without Iraq, the Arab Spring might not have happened. Some of that was caused by the US interfering in other countries near Iraq

I very much doubt sumo wrestlers are getting diabetes while they are wrestling because they only wrestle to about early 30s. And most people get type 2 diabetes over age 45 (it takes quite a bit of time to develop diabetes). So how are these sumo wrestlers getting diabetes during their career? I don't think your paper was only sumo wrestlers that were actually wrestling.

Doubt all you like. Why should I believe your simple incredulity over the researchers?

Does the paper say these are currently active sumo wrestlers? I very much doubt that. No athletes are getting diabetes during their careers, it's kinda impossible.
So to be clear: when the article says "sumo wrestlers", you're assuming they're not talking about sumo wrestlers.

When an article says sumo wrestlers life expectancy is 60-65 years old, you're assuming they are only talking about people that age that are still sumo wrestlers?

I also guess no football players ever had CTE either because there's never been an active football player that has had CTE.

??? Uhrm, they mention life expectancy for the vital context of how these health issues affect the individuals. That obviously doesn't mean they're actually only focused on people at the end of their life. Why on earth would it!? What an extraordinarily bizarre assumption.

They said sumo wrestlers. That means sumo wrestlers. Stop trying to wriggle out of that.

Football players don't life with extreme obesity, a documented risk factor for Type 2 Diabetes.

So background this TikToker argued with me about how using Facebook which lobbied for Tik Tok’s ban which could still happen and is likely to happen is bad, and how we shouldn’t use it. Instead of making my usual post, I am going to pretend I am Tucker Carlson and respond as such. Granted I don’t want him to be president in 2028, but he does have an interesting way of words.



‘So this tik tok person who loves tik tok told me and her audience to stop using Facebook, and Instagram plus they were partly responsible for banning their precious app where they have a job being woke while selling stuff made by underage children in countries that don’t have clean drinking water. I then proceeded to ask her whether she wanted to stop using Google. She then in an unusually quick reply stated, “I have no problem with Youtube”. And while yes Sundar Pichai pretends to be a woke CEO until he got caught making drones that also murder brown people, she does do something that I think is questionable. Instead of getting a real job at say a sales firm she decides to as the kids said “throw egg on Zuck” Now I am no Facebook guy I think Facebook is part of tech media that tries to censor people like me, and you. But why couldn’t she just make her website? Because that’s hard!!!! You need to set up servers, and call people, ewww!! Let’s let another billionaire take care of it for me. This just shows you that Tik Tok people today aren’t really about hard work, or rebelling they just want you to fight their fights for them while they make thousands of dollars selling you goods in countries with no human rights.’



I was laughing the whole time I was making it, okay shoot it down.
