"Instead Europe is over run with immigrants, 70+ just died yesterday, trying to make the journey."
That's what happens when invaders like the USA disrupt the situation, you simply can't convince me or anyone else that our invasion of Iraq wasn't the disruption that caused all of this. Libya, Syria, etc. would not have been so disrupted had Dubya not wanted to use a war in the ME to further his career and eventually enable him to privatize SS here in the U.S. He said that while he was the Governor of Texas. Sorry, no passes on comments like he made before he even was President, an office that everyone knew Karl Rove stole for him.
"The Halabja poison gas attack occurred in the period 1519 March 1988 during the IranIraq War when chemical weapons were used by the Iraqi government forces and thousands of civilians in the Iraqi Kurdish town of Halabja for rebelling against Saddam resulted in at least 15,000 deaths."
And who do you think sold them those weapons? We sold weapons to both sides of that war. I actually knew a guy who was exporting outboard motors to them for fighting in marsh areas, I couldn't find them on a map but he could, and making a fortune doing it. Capitalism has its purposes but unfortunately, one of them is supporting war, if it will bring the capitalist a profit.
I really do wish that one of you defenders of American foreign policy over the last 50 years could explain to me why our corporations should have profited from every war while all they really produced was misery and death for people who didn't even know what they were fighting for.
And John Bolton, God I hope he has a heart attack, is trying to gin up another war in Iran yet you still support the President allowing him to do it even though he campaigned as a anti-war person.
This issue, war with Iran, will define his Presidency if he allows these lunatics; Pompeo, Bolton, etc. to get us into another unnecessary, expensive, disastrous war.
That we are even discussing this demonstrates his weakness. His total lack of serious thought about anything. His racism....He rejected the Iran deal on nukes purely because Obama did it and he is black. That is just a fact.
