  •  The Drone War is being relied upon because (21+ / 0-)

    whoever it is that decides our foreign policy understands that neither the American people, nor their Treasury, will support boots-on-the-ground. If they did, we'd have invaded Yemen, Libya, Syria, etc directly.

    I don't particularly blame Obama for this, whether he relishes it or not, as I don't see how any President can oppose the 'global hegemony by dint of arms' foreign policy (now celebrating it's 50th year) and expect to remain in office.

    But Obama is beside the point.

    Our Global War of National Suicide (the proper name) is being conducted so as to sow as much chaos as possible in any possible center of resistance to the US Rich having easy access to local valuables. Gambling that we can create conditions ultimately exploitable by our Rich, or failing that, spoil the pot for our real targets, China and Russia.

    Isn't it remarkable that nobody here can remember any Presidential election in the last generation wherein our National Security strategy was even raised, let alone debated by either Party or the Press?


    Actual Democrats: the surest, quickest, route to More Democrats. And actually addressing our various emergencies.
