Is that like Boomersplaining to Millennials?


Anyway, 'splaining is too much strain, since I sprained my 'splainer while training strangers to stain model trains.

I think the last fully defensible military action the US engaged in was probably the Korean War.

Had Afghanistan achieved the implied objective, namely actually capturing or eliminating those directly responsible for 9-11, OBL in particular... had we achieved that objective quickly and with focus and single-minded determination; and (this is important) had we not left that country in the deteriorated condition it is in today, perhaps by taking some of the massive amounts of largesse we wasted in Iraq and instead using it to build schools, water treatment facilities, and infrastructure for the people of that long-abused nation, then I think that a decent case could be made for military action (which many of us, such as myself, supported at the time) in that situation as well.

But that's a pretty fucking slim menu for the past 60+ years of US history. Far more frequent have been misbegotten clusterfucks like Vietnam.

So heaven forfend we- as a nation already running a massive deficit, that certainly the anti-Sanders folks around here seem to believe pays too much in taxes as it is- should elect someone to the White House who is REAL FUCKIN' JUDICIOUS about when and where and what circumstances in which to use military force.

It's easy to say "bah, bomb em all", and it gets the '5 minutes of low information' voters every time. What is hard is actually thinking about these things and the consequences 10, 20 years down the road.

We're still paying off the consequences of the last shitty war, which Hillary voted for.
