Because when I see people making the same mistake over and over again I feel despair.

History proves that foreigners intervening in places like the Yemen, Afghanistan, Congo, etc leads to a disaster for all parties. They have very serious problems and these can't be fixed by a few foreigners coming in hoping to change things in a few years using military strength or money or people. They have to sort themselves out.
You left out Vietnam………..
I wonder if there is a 2021 version of “The Pentagon Papers” hiding out there.
