Why isn't anyone talking about Trumps civilian BLOODBATH?? 200 Civilians DEAD!



This is something I, and most of my fellow Democrats and Liberals, feel most strongly about. War is the most evil creation on this planet. It is the result of childishness and ignorance. Often times war begins because religious fanatics can't tolerate the very existence of people who believe differently than they do (This applies to fundamentalist Christians as well as any other group). War often begins because bloodthirsty warmongering politicians fear monger in order to gain enough support to create a conflict in another country. Sometimes war begins because a monstrous President has cozy connections to the oil industry and could help out his rich friends by starting a bloodbath in Iraq. Often times political debates revolve around which wars our military should or should not be involved in. Why don't we talk more often about how stupid the idea of war itself is. When you're little, you are told to communicate with your words and not violence. Why is foreign policy full of the exact opposite? War is often set up like some kind of sick sport. You have 2 teams and a divided playing field. Whoever wins gets some kind of reward. How stupid is it that foreign policy revolves around how many of the "others" we can kill? War creates an environment that makes it easy to ignore the finality of death. When deaths become nothing but a number, it makes it a lot easier to accept. These are lives! 200 innocent civilians have been killed by the Trump administration in Iraq. 200 human beings. Think about that. You, reading this right now are a human being. You have a life that I'm sure you value. 200 people who did nothing wrong lost their lives because of stupidity and ignorance. Some monsters, cowards have the gaul to celebrate this. War is hell. War is stupid.

1. If you pay for TV

either through satellite or cable, cancel your service and let your provider know why. I did a week after the election. When I hear Trump bounce for the Dow Jones. I was like fuck this shit. ripped my cable boxes out of my tv's and drove to the office to cancel.

I am now 500 dollars richer. and save 100 bucks a month.

3. Because many of us don't realize what the reverse is like had Fox gone after PBO

Situation reversed, they'd be controlling the narrative of what a failed president we had. tRump is white and a republican and a nationalist, so he gets a lot of passes.

And you are right on the money. This is another one of tRump's disasters that'll haunt our nation.

8. Literally a campaign promise. Trump talked about it all the time

Constantly going on about the need to kill children and women and how Obama was too soft for not killing enough civilians. He promised to do it and he's doing it. Who is going to stop him? General Mattis's response is that the Russians and others kill more. Racial hatred of the enemy's civilian population has always been a part of war and has made things only more complicated in areas where some of them are allied with us or good normal people but they look the same as terrorists.

Many Trumpers are gloating about this claiming this is the only way to show them the might of America [strike] and establish white supremacy[/strike] again. Anyone who protests it is a triggered snowflake. They also argue that this is why we should keep women and minorities out of our military, so we can have people who are more comfortable [strike]committing mass murder[/strike] making America great again.

Since the Coast Guard avoids killing people and actually saves lives, it's the one branch of our armed forces whose budget is getting Trumped.

12. Fast track now to "Make America Hated Again"

The usual bag of Repuglican terrorism that could get us all long before we can vote out the deplorables. There hasn't been a day since Frump's inauguration that the news doesn't make me
