We've had liberal Democratic presidents prosecuting American wars since the early 20th century [View all]

Now this isn't a solitary indictment on the Democrats, because the Republican presidents we've had have been very trigger happy too.

Not just major wars, but all kinds of military engagements, both direct and by proxy, throughout much of what we call "The Third World."

Your military (If you pay taxes, you own it) is a tool of the elites who run this country, in spite of what party inhabits the White House.

It's always been that way and will always continue to be that way until either America ceases being a global, hegemonic power, or all Americans demand that our War Machine is dismantled.

This is an American problem and no party has a monopoly on it.
