No! On the other hand, it accelerated the moral downward spiral in the USA and put the Military Industrial Complex back in charge of our gov't and intelligence agencies. The US was selling the war to the US people with constant lies and media control. They mastered the art of selling wars and now we have Terror Wars, Drug Wars, Hot Wars, and a brand new Cold War brought to you by the same MIC controlled Mass Media, with the same lies. "War is good business, and business is good." That'd be your gov't talking, don't ya' know?
