Whoever Is Elected War Is the Policy

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tells us that despite the record of destroying in whole or part eight countries in recent years, the US is a "force for good."  This is the Trump regime's version of the neoconservative doctrine espoused by President Clinton's Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: "If we have to use force, it is because we are America; we are the indispensable nation. We stand tall and we see further than other countries into the future, and we see the danger here to all of us."  The notion that Iraq was a danger to the US shows imbecility.  The inhumanity of Washington's response to the "danger" was sanctions that resulted in the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children. When asked on national television if a half million dead children achieved a justified purpose, the heartless Albright said that it was "a very hard choice, but the price, we think the price is worth it."
