War Mongers!

Don't you wonder what gives the US the RIGHT to invade and bomb SOVEREIGN NATIONS in violation of INTERNATIONAL LAWS?

Don't you ever wonder about Neo Con Chicken Hawks and WAR PROFITEERS guiding WAR POLICY?

Is this why Americans go hungry, Americans can't receive UNIVERSAL SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE?
Genuflecting to the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex?

When will Americans THINK?

Poppy Bush got the US into Afghanistan, supported and trained Osama bin Laden to fight the Russians and abandoned the country...after bombing it to rubble...much as the US continues to do....the US continues to create fertile ground for terrorists .... Libya's a good example.

Is this about BOMBING and KILLING? Or should this be about building nations that can function independently?
Let me know when you find something that works - this is FAILURE!

When an organization does not have a corporate sugar daddy, or mommy, every fund-raising drive is the one the determines what the budget will be going forward. That's bad because we always stay hungry, but it's good because we always stay hungry. The logic of that is stark and unavoidable. Truth: We love it this way. Be a Reader Supporter, it feels great!

Trump Is Quietly Expanding All of Obama's Wars

The president has agreed to increase troops in Afghanistan.

n the campaign trail, Donald Trump pitched Americans on an immiscible foreign-policy agenda, combining elements of staunch isolationism and a rejection of Bush-era interventionism with promises to “bomb the shit out of ISIS.” But in his four months as president, Trump, characteristically, has done something of a 180-degree turn. He turned over much of his military policy and decision-making to the same “embarrassing” generals he previously claimed to know more than; he authorized a missile strike and boots on the ground in Syria, a country he had repeatedly warned against getting involved with; and he increased troop levels in Iraq, doubling down on a tactic he had called “a horrible mistake.”
Now, the Trump administration is considering sending more troops into the war in Afghanistan, which he previously called “a complete waste.” On Tuesday, the president gave Defense Secretary James Mattisthe authority to determine the number of troops in Afghanistan, The New York Times reports, a rejection of the management levels adopted by the Obama administration.
With the new latitude, the Pentagon is expected to send as many as 4,000 new troops to fight al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, according to an Associated Press report citing a Trump administration official. But as was the case with Trump’s decision to strike Syria, it is unclear whether the move is part of any broader military strategy. Bloomberg’s Eli Lake reports that while Trump signed off on the cap removal, he has yet to sign off on a plan. The president also has yet to present his strategy to destroy ISIS, which he gave Mattis 30 days to devise shortly after the inauguration. Mattis reportedly turned in his plan on February 27, but Trump has not publicly modified or approved it.
This dynamic has left some lawmakers frustrated. During a meeting last week in which Mattis conceded to the Senate Armed Services Committee that the U.S. is “not winning in Afghanistan right now,”John McCain derided the delay of a broader strategy. “We are now six months into this administration; we still haven’t got a strategy for Afghanistan,” the Arizona senator said. “It makes it hard for us to support you when we don’t have a strategy. We know what the strategy was for the last eight years—don’t lose. That hasn’t worked.”
Mattis responded, “We are putting it together now, and there are actions being taken to make certain that we don’t pay a price for the delay,” he said. “We recognize the need for urgency, and your criticism is fair, sir.”
