Last week, US Senator Rand Paul slammed his colleagues in the Senate for supporting endless US wars in Syria and Afghanistan when they voted 68-to-23 to rebuke President Trump for saying he wanted to bring our troops home from Syria and pull out half of US forces from Afghanistan. A critic noted that the Republican-dominant Senate has a history of disappointing its base by not repealing Obamacare, not defunding Planned Parenthood, but they “fight like lions for the right to kill your son in Afghanistan.” -GEG

Bunch of fat, pasty, over-educated millionaires eating lobbyist-funded steak dinners as they send our best and brightest to get blown up for nothing. Makes me sick.

Feb 6, 2019. Too late. The President just changed his mind about pulling the troops out of Syria. Thanks Democrats (sarcastically). Thanks Republicans (sarcastically). You spoiled a good thing.

Had the president had unanimous support he might not have caved to the Israel First lobby that was sent against him.
