The United States military is actively fighting in seven Muslim-majority countries; and no one cares. As Americans go to the polls today in a ritual pretense of democracy, they will vote for one of the two major political parties on issues ranging from healthcare to immigration to the basic personality of President Donald Trump. The three mainstream networks – from "liberal" MSNBC to "conservative" Fox News – have reported on little else for the last several months. The whole charade is little more than politics-as-entertainment.

Why should we be surprised? The de facto "leaders" of both parties – the Chuck Schumers, Joe Biden, Hillary Clintons and Mitch McConnells of the world – all voted for the 2002 Iraq War resolution, one of the worst foreign policy adventures in American History. Sure, on domestic issues – taxes, healthcare, immigration – there may be some distinction between Republican and Democratic policies; but on the profound issues of war and peace, there is precious little daylight between the two parties. That, right there, is a formula for perpetual war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And so the wars continue, because there is absolutely very little daylight, allowing people to see the realities of what the US is doing militarily.

I do not know who, in their "to do" list of destabilization and invasions, the US government is going to attack next; but I can tell you, if either Russia or China get into the fray on the side of the attacked country, it is very possible that the US military may not be able to win, because they do not have the weaponry; the troop strength; the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war.
