Iraq Vet

It all comes down to profits for those who have more to gain from war than peace. We have McCain in the Senate who never met a war he didn’t like. Why, because he can line his pockets with considerations.

We are now witnessing the inevitable consequences of going into a war in a nation that posed no threats to the US, was politically stable, sectarian, where Shiites, Sunni and Christians lived side by side in relative harmony and al Qaeda was viewed as an enemy by all sides.

Fighters of  al-Qaeda linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant parade at Syrian town of Tel Abyad

Putin’s game plan has been clear, using Russia’s renewed oil revenues and supplies to support and control those countries that undermine stability for the rest of the world to create a space for Russia to wedge itself back in as the most powerful and threatening force among nations.

It was a no-brainer (or as known in Republican circles, a “Gohmert”) for Republicans to vote against background checks, an assault weapons ban and a gun magazine limit. And it was just as easy for them to be “outraged” by the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi. Only If deaths help them politically, do they matter.

This is a post I periodically re-post about once a year especially before elections.  It is the case against conservatism but if you hold a mirror to it, it’s also a case for progressivism   I try to add to the list to keep it current and ask people to add their […]

There can be no question about the historic importance of 9/11 and how it changed the course of America. There’s an enormous amount to be learned and remembered but there can be a thin line between exploring those events and exploiting the horror of that day just for ratings or other less than altruistic agendas.
