Editorial: Expanding the Iraq War even further

2019: Iran moving ballistic missiles by boat, US officials say 2003: Iraq moving WMDs by trucks, US officials say

Yes, it is very similar and it does appear the US government is attempting to expand the Iraq War to include Iran.

As pointed out at THE COMMON ILLS, measures the government is undertaking really seem to be setting up a Gulf of Tonkin moment so that the government can lie us into war.

Where are the cooler heads?

This is what happens when you get the so-called 'resistance.'  A bunch of fake asses who don't give a damn about anything but their Queen Hillary.  It's also what you get when you spend eight years (2009 through 2017) appeasing a sitting president because (a) you think he's cool and (b) you don't want to put any real pressure on him.

That's how we arrive here today.

That and a lousy media.  Meryl Streep is butt ugly.  Because the media refuses to tell that truth (Joe Queenan excepted), she rushes to prop them up.  She has no factual basis for her cheerleading of a corporate media that is both craven and deceptive.  Mere days ago, THE WASHINGTON POST was insisting that Americans didn't care about foreign policy issues -- this from the media that refuses to cover the ongoing wars.

You've got candidates saying they want to be the next president of the United States.  Start demanding that they make clear how they would run the country and that this includes how they would address the wars.

Bernie Sanders and Tulsi Gabbard are two candidates who do address those realities.

  1. 18 years, thousands of dead, trillions of dollars. We’re right back where we started. Our leaders have failed us. It’s time our troops in Afghanistan came home.

If they can't address those issues, they can't address any because, as Tulsi knows, we don't have the money for these forever wars and the money to also address what our own country needs.

  1. We need to take the trillions being spent on regime change wars, the new Cold War & arms race, & reinvest those dollars in the needs of our communities--quality healthcare for all, protecting the environment, improving education, rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, & more.
