  •  being a war weary nation (1+ / 0-)

    has left most of us so very leary of more war. We are still heavily involved in our longest war, with our troops still coming home in body bags, with well over another year to go of that war.

    In this country when children are living with their parents in the woods, I see that as gross violation of human rights of those children. Right here in America.

    That should never happen in a country that engages in global dominance, an unaudited out of control pentagon, MIC,  with a congress that never lacks votes for war funding.

    America does not have to take the lead for everything that is wrong around the globe. There are many nations that could act, nations that are quite wealthy, that have come to rely on the US, unfortunately, with the US always ready to take the lead, bear the costs. That has to end.

    "The responsibility to act doesn't mean that it always has to be the U.S. I think we're encouraging a culture in the Middle East of dependency on the United States every time there's a conflict there and there are other global players that have a responsibility to burden some of that."
