    Fortunately, people are sick of the crap you guys have been doing, and then lying about for decades. Itís coming to an end. I suggest you find your allies back in the liberal wing of the country that still agree with massive government overreach.
    Unfortunately, we waited far too long to take effective action in Syria, and missed the window when the secular opposition would have prevailed with relative ease. By the time we got around to providing meaningful help, the Islamic extremists had mobilized and become powerful. Our assistance, nonetheless, has been focused on the secular moderates.

    I really have no interest in your foreign policy views and how you cheer on the violent overthrow of elected leaders.

    Too bad. You might learn something.

    It's not clear to me that Hillary will be the Dem nominee. On the Repub side there are several candidates who would interest me. If Rand Paul were the nominee (unlikely in my view) then I would probably not vote at all.

    I am of course assuming

    Never assume anything.

    Get the facts and act based on those facts.

    YMMV
    Very, VERY unfortunately that's a minority view amongst those who are even aware of it. If Americans ever really paid attention, which tends not to be people on a message board like this, and knew of the **** their government has done around the world, things might (just might) be different.

    This is nothing new. Starting way back in 1979 (35 years ago.) the Carter and Reagan administrations were supplying arms to the mujahideen (anti-Soviet forces) in Afghanistan.

    The USA is always involved, behind the scenes, in conflicts all over this planet.

    Does anyone expect to see that stop anytime soon?

    I don't.
