    Things will be so much better when Russian tanks roll across Europe while President Trump checks to see which countries have paid their monthly protection fee.

    Ted has just lost his mind over drones. I guess all out war is so much better.

    Delusional to think Russia will invade Europe. It is time to focus on real problems in this country, not on fantasies.

    The people who have lost their minds on drones are those who think we can employ them without consequence. Would the young men in your family just roll over and forget about if a number of the family died horrible deaths, not because of any guerrila or terrorist warfare, but because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time? Died by application of flying robotic bomb used by an empire on the other side of the globe employed by a nation of Walmart shoppers and sports watchers who were mostly willfully ignorant of their empire’s policies and decades’-long interference, control, and imposition of phony governments and violence? Eventually, families of the victims, or others radicalized by our bloody touch will bring a message to us on stationary that we might recognize as nuclear or biological in design. Enjoy the next Star Wars movie, but do not presume to think that you are entitled to identify with the rebels.

    Don’t be too sure about that. They will try to expand their control and influence where ever they can. That’s what countries do and authoritarian governments tend to be heavy handed when it suits their agenda.

    Lysistrata for president, for prime minister, for queen, for CEO, for Chairwoman, etc.

    This is an important comment. All true and so sad. It’s probably true that “most” of Obama’s drones have killed bad guys. I’ll give him that. And it’s way better and more constrained than George W. Bush’s idiotic invasion and occupation. But to imagine any people not vowing revenge is unrealistic. Violence begets violence. Only peace brings peace. The entire drone program will eventually come back to bit us in the rear, big time. No, we aren’t the Star Wars rebels. We aren’t the evil empire, either. But we are acting in an imperial fashion when we invade, occupy, and bomb other people’s territory.

    These drone strikes are horrific and should be stopped. There is a mess in the Middle East and it has to be controlled. I suppose we could stop the violence and negotiate. We could continue our drone program. Or we could make the sands glow and carpet bomb the whole region. I know which one I am voting for, it is not my first choice.

    I guess I’ll start at the top. Criticizing Mrs. Clinton does not mean supporting Drumpf nor does it aid him. He will not win, nor will he even make it close. It’s never too early to start trying to influence Mrs. Clinton to be an actual progressive. Because drones do not risk American soldiers and are less evil than all out wars does not make them desirable. No, Russian tanks will not roll across Europe. They don’t have the resources to conduct an all out war. They have invaded Ukraine and like another large and powerful country (as Ted Lind points out) will not hesitate to try and influence world affairs by any means they can muster. I agree with your comment wmbrainiac, but I’d like to add to it if I may. The blowback may someday be worse than 9/11 with the use of small scale nuclear or biological weapons, but by no means do we face any existential threats. I don’t remember the exact numbers or the source (and with 3 very active young boys I don’t have the time to find it-I’m already getting a lot of grief-my 3 year wants Scooby Doo now!) but a reliable report stated that many more innocents have been killed by drones than have combatants. I intend to vote Green or write in Mr. Sanders. I live in NY and Mrs. Clinton will crucify Drumpf in NY. The Electoral College makes my individual presidential vote rather meaningless.

    I wish I could believe that. I fear that we will be seeing President Trump, but we’ll just have to see which candidate has the better election fraud operation.
    After Clinton’s theft (100 page pdf) of the Democratic primary, I feel like my vote really doesn’t matter, so I can vote for Jill Stein with a clear conscience.

    I loved seeing the details of Hillary’s childhood and how much she was loved by her mother yesterday at the convention. Now that was a well-loved child! Funny that Trump didn’t have anything like that. It could be because his mother didn’t like him. In fact, I’ll bet Trump’s mother hated him. A mother’s love is very important in the development of a person. Harlow’s famous maternal deprivation studies prove this conclusively! So we can’t elect some weirdo whose mother hated him.

    Hey, look… it takes one to know one. My mother hated me.

    Same result as first black President. Ditto for first president to win Nobel Peace Prize while in office.
