  •  Supporting any war (7+ / 0-)

    regardless of the ideological reasons is not and should never be considered a progressive action (short of self defense against an active and aggressive foe)
    The  wars around the globe, whether they are in Africa, the Middle East, Central Europe or South America or the many violent criminal organization's wars with their governments or their criminal rivals have two things in common: 1) innocent people suffer and die at an alarming rate 2) the manufacturers of the tools of war and conflict are enriched at an alarming rate.
    Wars and criminal organizations are the honey pot for the arms industry and without a twinge of guilt they happily and eagerly supply both sides.  Regrettably, few governments are willing to restrict a money making enterprise and reliable financial supporter.  
    Is the free market a great system or what?

    "If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them. Isaac Asimov (8.25 / -5.64}
