While the GOP cuts the food stamps their families live on while stealing money from their housing for a wall that blows over in a breeze.

Russia's only aircraft carrier is laid up for refit, probably for years. Why do we need a fleet of 20 of these floating targets?

Bernie's a flake, but he's on the right track with his foreign policy.

"Trump's initial appeal to the troops was likely down to the isolationist platform he ran on in 2016, but over the past three years, the president has shown that he lacks the leadership ability to overcome the inertia of the bipartisan war machine. Trump has only succeeded in reducing the American headcount in northern Syria " the one place where the U.S. military was actually achieving its stated mission, the defeat of the Islamic State. The rank betrayal of our Kurdish allies was as poorly timed as it was faithless, and must have sent waves of disgruntlement through the Army and Marine Corps. By now, military voters have probably figured out that Trump's anti-war streak is fickle and phony. He has not ended the war in Afghanistan. He has made things worse in Iraq, stirring up the militias and provoking conflict with Iran. Nobody in the military wants war with that country; it would be a bloodbath. After dishonoring the United States in Syria, Trump sent more troops to protect his cronies in Saudi Arabia. He's in some kind of weird cahoots with the ruler of Turkey, no friend of the USA. He continues to back Mohammed bin Salman's shameful war in Yemen, over the objections of Congress."

Not many soldiers want to be rented out to the highest bidder or biggest black mailer.

Author forgets NATO membership, US forward bases, and they control the supply line to our surrogate forces in Syria.

Bernie is worse off than Trump. He has zero support in Congress to wind down anything.
