What an idiotic reply. We are spending billions and billions and billions to build mountains of high-tech killing machinery… which, as in Vietnam, and Iraq, and Afghanistan, much of which we simply… leave behind… when we get run out of country (for whatever reason) because it DOESN’T WORK against enemies who are comfortable living in tunnels and caves. Didja ever hear Ike’s speech about the military-industrial complex? THEY are the only winners here.
How much money does this country throw away into the Defense Department? Have you any idea what a new jet fighter costs? Or a Navy submarine? Do we REALLY need all that killing crap?
A little perspective. 9/11 was terrible- thousands of lives lost. So we went to war in a couple of places, and killed many more thousands, many innocent civilians, purposely or in error, needlessly and futilely. Now, consider Covid and the Trump administration’s foot dragging and lies, when HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS lost their lives. What is the greatest horror?
Reality check, Bokkie: War started under W; how many US military died while he was Prez? How many died when Obama was Prez? How many died when asshole Trump, who negotiated the whole idiot withdrawal deadline, was Prez? In all cases, many, many more died under those administrations than the number will be while Biden is Prez. Biden is preventing any more useless, pointless American military deaths in a country in which we could NEVER SUCCEED with the mission.
As it has been for thousands of years, as failed campaigns by Alexander the Great, the British, the Russians, and now we silly Americans have proven. Have we finally learned?
Kelley, you insufferable twit, why don’t you start driving over the speed limit everywhere, and without a seatbelt? Why bother stopping at red lights? Who needs traffic laws? Or shoes and shirts in the 7/11? Why do we bother with anything anymore- as long as we have our precious personal freedoms?
This idiot cartoonist is coming out strongly as a climate change skeptic/denier? Way to confirm your stupidity, Henry!
Trump raised that flag first.
Looks like time for Pi to me.
It is finally dawning on right wing nuts like Al here that the anti-vax movement is killing their base audience: stupid Republicans.
