This McCoy cartoon is right on the mark as far as I am concerned. His war stance, or to be more precise, his stated intentions were to get the troops out, and figure out another way to keep the bad guys in check, but no. The man listened instead to the military industrial complex, and signed up to further lenghten our longest war ever into another three years or so. What will change in three years? Not much I fear, except isn't that about election time again.
What is it that presidents hear that makes them all turn into Gen. Patton clones? One further question, is what they find out too horrendous to share it with the country. We might understand what is going on and maybe even agree.
