    Senate votes for endless war

    Not surprisingly, U.S. foreign policy remains one of endless war and the intentional or unintentional killing of innocents in seven countries.

    http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47800.htm

    September 13, 2017 "Information Clearing House" - The Senate Wednesday scuttled a proposal by Sen. Rand Paul to repeal the war authorizations that underpin the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as military action in a slew of other countries.

    "I don't think that anyone with an ounce of intellectual honesty believes that these authorizations from 16 years ago and 14 years ago ... authorized war in seven different countries," Paul said.

    Here's the speech:

    Two things:

    1) Intentional killing of innocent people by our military? Really? Collateral damage, horrible as it may be, is not the moral equivalent of intentional killing of non-combatants.

    2) I think Paul is right about this but nothing is going to change.

    When the U.S. bombs militants knowing there are innocents in the kill zone, is that intentional?

    Ed,

    You should try some angry yoga.

    The instructor sounds a lot like you in the first 30 seconds.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I recommend goat yoga. It is the opposite of angry yoga (although I can relate regarding the man bun).
