51. Chomsky is one of the best Philosophers ever!

The quote about Vietnam is very telling even todays dialogue. Huge Bernie supporter, but he and Obama opposed the Iraq war.

But when you hear them on why they oppose it, they will tell you it was greatest "Strategic Blunder" of the 20th century. Just like Vietnam. The line of argument is we had right to go in, but for strategic reasons should not have because x,y,z.

How about it was war of aggression, and crime against humanity, and that is the reason we shouldn't have gone in there? You will never hear that discourse in the political system.
