Not sure why that’s really a controversial opinion. It's not controversial, until I ask you how our leadership designates our enemies and opponents. If they sink a ship with causing loss of American lives - enemy. If they bomb a US naval base - enemy. If they fly planes into US buildings - enemy. Like the Mattis quote "‘I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all." But I think your definition is much more lose, and you'd seek direct conflict simply over political differences, competition for resources, a nation impeding our expansion, or possibly just for an economic benefit that a wartime economy brings. That's what's controversial. EDIT: BTW, The Defense Minister of Ukraine was just fired/resigned amid controversy. What an absolute shit show.
