Whatever rising tide if radical terrorism we face today is a direct consequence of radical death, destruction and terrorism delivered by the US military. They are the most active user of bombs, guns, drones, and destabilizing NGOs on the planet and almost 2 billion Muslims are sick and tired of it. They can't take anymore and they're doing something about it either by migrating it taking up arms themselves.

Wrong, but I am not going to argue with you about your Counterpunch/Alternet nonsense.

Like all Marines, Gen. Mattis is willing to give diplomacy a chance, but will fight if necessary.


"Mattis's emphasis on diplomacy is unsurprising despite the 'Mad Dog' moniker he despised. After all, this is the same man who once told Iraqi leaders, "I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you ---- with me, I'll kill you all."

How dare he speak against the Dear Leader!!

Mattis is obviously just a Hillary lover with a big (dumb) mouth.

Remove his clearance immediately.

if someone could guarantee today, peace in the middle east for the next 10 years, it would have zero impact on what we'll all face within the next 50 to 75 years.
to many people..dwindling resources and technology are going to precipitate changes that we can't even imagine
India's reelection of a right wing nationalist in the context of it's internal muslim/hindu conflict and it's ongoing border tensions with pakistan and they both have nukes...
we're still working with a laissez-faire attitude that's not even compatible with the realities of today
