What a great, fun speech in favor of Bernie.

US troops on the ground in Syria

"The Obama administration announced on Friday it will send US special forces into Syria, breaking its repeated vow that Barack Obama would not send ground troops into the war-torn country. This is the latest in a series of U-turns and broken promises that further cements our Forever War and sets a disturbing precedent for whoever becomes the next US president in 2016."

Why are on earth are we escalating the combat in this horrific conflict-- a war that has already caused so much death and destruction?

We need to work for peace, and cut off the funding and weapon supplies of the people fighting in Syria. More bombs are not going to solve anything. But our leaders will waste billions more precious US dollars on this sickening conflict.

We never seem to run out of money for war, or worry about its cost, do we? Even when it is a foreign conflict that does not directly threaten us, cost is simply no concern.

The GOP of course rails against government spending unless it's for war, and they are so dysfunctional these days they can't even mount a coherent response to anything the president does.

It depresses me how much Obama must be in the grip of the war mongers of the national security state and the military industrial complex.
