So Mr. Savage, why are you spending more time this election cycle insulting left wingers than the GOP? Is this supposed to bring votes to Hillary somehow? Or are you just trying to help burn the whole shitshow down?

Baume's best article yet! I was mildly amused, especially by the bit about the soup.

@2. We can stop participating. That could easily be achieved.

6 comments and not a single one gives a rat's ass about 85 dead innocents at America's hands. Our air campaign in the Middles East and Africa is a complete failure as a tool to protect the USA and it's allies, a recruiting gift to oir enemies, and plainly immoral.

Shame on us.

@11- It is a shame, but there's nothing like a failed coup to solidify a President-for-Life because it gives you credibility at home. In Venezuela the US backed coup that utterly failed lead to Chavez abandoning democracy and sustainable economics and keeping a lot of support because there really was a coup attempt and they USA really publicly promised to work with the coup leaders as the coup was happening. After that Chavez could say he was the fighting Imperialism and it didn't sound that crazy.

@6- They captured him in Argentina, so comparing a covert capture operation in another country it to Turkey drone striking the USA is... silly. You could compare it to Pinochet having someone car bombed in the USA, which we totally allowed.

Finding something moral to compare our drone campaign to is actually impossible. It's a clusterfuck. We are, every week, murdering people on iffy intelligence. We bomb groups of young men for being groups of young men who group chat a lot. We kill American citizens without trial and without even suspecting them of having a direct role in violent activities. The Bush/Obama policy of extra-judicial killing via flying robot (and occasional special forces raid) has done nothing to make the USA safer, it has probably done the opposite. It is a crime.

@3- That whooshing sound was the point flying over your head.

@1- "You also forgot to mention how they were already war zones..." except when they weren't, "...and are usually done with the express permission of the sovereign governments..." usually is a bit of a reach. How about "often done with the express...", that'd be accurate. And they're often done at the behest of the sovereign government which is a dictatorship that likes to tell the USA all their domestic opponents are al Queda terrorists.

@14- Still sticking to the red herring I see. Just because you have the right to remain silent doesn't mean you always should. "...if a public employee is told to say what happened or lose their job, anything they say that incriminates them of a crime is inadmissible in a court of law." has nothing to do with the conversation, but you keep inserting it. Get on topic or go away.

"Jayapal refused to endorse Clinton after she clinched the nom...annoying some SEBC members."

Some SEBC members ought to stop rolling around in their piles of TV/book money and look at what the rest of us are dealing with.
