American troops face more dangers from the gang members and cartels that are in the military. Trump gave 300 billion dollars more to your budget, maybe use it to figure out who shouldn't be in the military.

They will be barking orders either from their basement or bunkers.
Folks like Biden, Obama, both Clintons , etc.

Both parties are filled with draft dodgers and those who refused to wear the uniform.

I agree with you tho. Those who make the decision to go to war don't and won't have any skin in the game. Those days are over.

And why we need to stop being globalists and be nationalists.

Nice try, but it was the Republican Party that engineered and sold that war. Shame on the Democrats who believed them.

Before Bush was in power, Clinton and the DNC were screaming their heads off about the imminent threat of Iraq's WMDs.

I can only assume you are too young to remember, and The View hasn't filled you in.

Believed they were about to be a lot richer. Democrats after being hit hard on Wall Street from the dot-com bust at the end of Clinton's administration, saw dollar signs with defense stocks.

You seem to have trouble discerning the difference between soundbites and a full scale military invasion and occupation under false pretense that has resulted in untold American and Iraqi deaths that likely now number over one million dead.

Apparently Fox News didn't tell you this.

At the end of the day, it was the House and Senate majority that authorized the resolution. Some of them are still in office:

congress was told it was going to be easy, a few months and cheap.

Reality is that it dragged on for 6 years and cost $ 6 Trillion when interest on the incremental debt and VA benefits are factored in.

John Bolton is one of the common inside actors.
