Democratic voters have wildly shifted their “beliefs” based on the party affiliation of the president: during the Bush-Cheney years, liberals denounced war-on-terror tactics, such as assassinations, drones, and torture as moral atrocities. When Obama was elected, however, they completely changed their position.
Israel has been spraying Palestinian crops in Gaza with herbicides to damage the vegetation since 2014. Officially, the crop dusting is only done on the Israeli side of the border fence, but Palestinian farmers and the Red Cross testified that the damage can be seen deep inside Palestine. Glyphosate is the main herbicide that is used, which can stay in the soil for months or even years, and may have negative health effects.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) found zero evidence that sarin nerve gas was used in an attack reported by the dubious al-Qaeda-linked White Helmets. The US rained airstrikes on Syria following the disputed event, which nearly led to war with Russia. Trump has authorized $6.6 million to fund the White Helmets.
Rand Paul says that Congress seeks to amend the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) by handing over their power to declare war to the president. Moreover, Congress could only disapprove of war, which turns the Constitution on its head! Even worse, any resolution of disapproval could be vetoed, meaning two thirds of Congress would need to disapprove of a war, rather than a majority to approve of one.
Israel: Parliament passed a law allowing the prime minister and defense minister to decide alone whether the nation will go to war. This puts Netanyahu firmly in the driver’s seat. If Netanyahu declares war, it is certain that the US will back Israel – which means that Netanyahu now can bring America into war. In a video recorded a number of years ago, Netanyahu says that Israel has 80% support from Americans and that America can easily be maneuvered.
