From the Washington Post:

The ‘caravan’ of migrants is not a threat. But Trump would rather ignore real crises.

By Max Boot Columnist April 4 at 7:20 PM

… And what horrors will be visited upon the United States if it were to act with a smidgen of kindness and allow a few of the Hondurans in? We would undoubtedly be getting hard-working newcomers who, like most immigrants, will make our country even greater than it is. …

The president’s message — that just 1,000 refugees pose an existential threat to the world’s sole superpower — is yet another example of the xenophobia he uses to galvanize his white, working-class base. …

Of all the threats in the world, Trump chooses to focus on a few migrants who are, in truth, no threat at all. What is he ignoring? Well, let’s see. A trade war with China that has rattled markets. Russia’s attempted assassinations in Britain. Russian and Iranian war crimes in Syria. The Saudi war in Yemen. The U.S. war in Afghanistan. The Russian invasion of Ukraine. An election in Iraq. Insurgencies in Somalia, Nigeria, Mali, Libya and other countries. …

Like many a would-be authoritarian before him, Trump ignores the real threats that his country faces, preferring to manufacture nonexistent crises that enable him to play on popular prejudice to consolidate his own power.

  2. The only way to get Max Boot to change his opinion on immigration from Honduras might be to point out that Honduras is woefully ill-equipped to intervene in Mali, and if enough Hondurans and similiar move here, we may lose our ability to engage in all the foreign interventions he’d like.

    When that happens, Mr Boot & sons will move to China and start writing for Beijing Post.

    They will then try to convince the Chinese elites that their future depends on "invade the world, invite the world." Mr Boot would advise Mr. Xi to invade Iran to remodel it on Confucian principle, arguing that the invasion will pay for itself.

    In fact, China should fight all the battles of Israel, for some reason I cannot remember.

    I don't care about changing his opinion.

    Why is he here?

    He's not an American. He adds zero value. (Actually negative value.)

    Boot is almost a poster child for the point that importing a high IQ elite is as big a disaster--potentially worse--than the "cheap labor" disaster. The guy shows up, gets some academic gigs and has elite media platform ... to push policies in the interest of his group and shower contempt on the actual Americans whose ancestors built the nation and who themselves keep it running today. (And please don't tell me there's no "Jewish privilege", when this turd always has an elite media platform to spout off.)

    Yep. Seven years Marine Corps active duty at the pointy end of the spear I knew exactly one Jewish Marine. He was actually a goyim who converted after marrying his Jewish wife. Not surprisingly, the marriage didn't work out and neither did his Judaism. The only Jews you ever met in the military were either in the Judge Advocate Corps or the Medical Corps (paying back their college/law/med school commitments). If you want to see a Jew with a weapon you have to visit the IDF.

    Actually, Jews vote by strong margins for the Democratic Party, which is the less hawkish major party. (Consider the Iran nuclear deal, for instance.)

    It's interesting that you find it interesting that Jews are over-represented among hawks, but not that Jews are likewise over-represented among doves (Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Glenn Greenwald, et cetera.)

    Also, I think that the number of ethnic Jews is somewhat understated by the official numbers, which IIRC are collected to help provide religious services to members of the armed forces. As I recall, the share of members of the armed forces professing no religion is much larger than that of the general population, and I think that ethnic Jews are more likely than members of other ethnicities to profess no religion.

    Max Boot propagandizes in favor of more foreign interventionism on the part of the American Empire solely to make it possible for American Empire troops to fight more wars on behalf of Israel. My modest proposal is to deport Max Boot to Israel, or, if they won't take him, then deport Boot to Uganda.

    That young guy Millennial Woes is a mutton-headed Scottish dope who smokes too much. Charles Murray is what that mutton-headed bastard Millennial Woes will look like in 35 years. He might keep more hair than Murray, though.

    Millennial Woes also looks like that blockhead Tucker Carlson. For a Jew version of these pumpkin heads, you would have to go to Malibu to find everyone's favorite meathead, Rob Reiner.

    Steve Sailer should know that Tucker Carlson is picking up on the Malibu angle of wealthy California bastards living like kings in isolated splendor while other parts of California are being turned into Third World hellholes because of mass immigration.

    A question arises after reflecting upon Max Boot's deportation to Uganda:

    It's one thing to be tricked by a guy who looks just like you; it's another to get fooled by a guy who's looks scream that they are from another tribe.

    Then again, whites listen to Indians like Chetty so maybe Jews will be fine at the next stop of their long migration.

    What Boot is actually saying is that the invasion of tens of millions of nonwhites since the passage of the immigration act of 1965 -overwhelmingly Mestizos and pure Amerindians from Mexico and Central American with a large minority of blacks (including mulattos and zambos) from the Caribbean and also millions of Muslims- that will soon transform the U.S. into a nonwhite-majority country is "no threat at all" and will make "America even greater." Possibly for the rich and affluent and powerful, like himself, but not for most white gentiles, whom he loathes.

    I just listened to a radio discussion with Max Boot about a new book that he's written on Edward Lansdale (a Vietnam-era military intelligence adviser). In the program, he made a number of statements that didn't sound very credible and he also failed to make a strong connection between his historical conclusions and the sorts of contemporary policy prescriptions that he usually advocates towards places like Iran and Afghanistan. And, after the program, I learned that Edward Lansdale is already a fairly well-known figure (I'd never heard of him); though Boot did say that he got new access to personal materials documenting Lansdales' longtime romance with his Filipina mistress and later wife, so I can see how that will be a solid addition to the literature and will add some interest for future students at the Army War College... And just now I see that Lansdale's Wikipedia entry has started listing Boot's new book under the "Further reading" heading along with a review of it from The New Yorker.

    Additionally, several months ago on the same radio program, I heard Max Boot talking about how the US should essentially turn Afghanistan into a permanent US protectorate because "it wouldn't cost that much." He also went on about Trump and how his very existence violates the promise of Boot's own sacred and patriotic personal story, and why that makes Boot himself unusually well-suited to advise the government and US Military High Command (I'm exaggerating slightly).

    So from what I've seen, Max Boot is a mediocre talent and generally unappealing "public intellectual" with a track history of failed policy prescriptions and ideological self-contradictions. The most interesting thing about him is not what he says or thinks, but why he keeps being invited into the public square to share his opinions. And that may not be because of his ethnic background (though he's undoubtedly third-cousins with a high percentage of the other public policy s̶c̶h̶l̶o̶c̶k̶ ̶j̶o̶c̶k̶s authorities out there). No, Max Boot for all his flat, Dustin Hoffmanesque-voice and seeming moral tone-deafness, is actually an accomplished singer: he sings the right tune for the right people each and every performance, and that's why he always ends up on stage no matter how wrong he really is. Max Boot is a command public policy performer. But who's the commander?

    Would a sub-saharan download be worse? Sure.

    But, of course, the issue isn't "a few thousand Indios". It's the principle of a Latin American bums' rush.

    The plain fact is America in my lifetime has already significantly Latinized. We're not Brazil yet, but we've gone from something very, very different than Brazil, to something quite a bit closer. We won't actually be "America" again even if immigration was ended today. But as the Hispanics are the lone group with above-replacement fertility and the immigration continues, we're definitely headed toward Brazilification, in my kids' lifetimes.

    ~~

    And for the record, these Indios are not moving to another part of their "ancestral homeland". That's MexAm propaganda. The various American Indian tribes are--mostly--flat out different peoples from these Central American Indians. In some cases from completely different migrations out of the Asia, with completely different language families. If these guys had tried to "caravan" here before the white man showed up, their caravan would have come to a wonderfully rude end--actually long before they were ever near the border, but certainly the American Indians would have made short work of them.

    Maximum Boot is a good example of an immigrant who comes here and advocates against us, the host country, for more immigration and/or a nationless world. Time after time, a judge ruling against the nation and for open borders is a member of a foreign identity group, aka immigrants, aka special, extra-nice hardworking folks, as opposed to the lazy gentile trash impeding the diversity imperium.

    Diversity is a euphemism for conquest by a coalition of immigrants, a way of exempting themselves from scrutiny of self interest. Of course immigrants want more, much more, immigration. The diversity coalition is allowed to operate as if they didn't have a point of view, an interest, as if xenophilic superiority was an inalienable right.
  29. Why is Max Boot a thing? A Russian émigré who can’t stop sending American males off to police the world while their country is under attack from the Invasion of the Nation Snatchers.

  31. “Russian and Iranian war crimes in Syria. The Saudi war in Yemen.”

    The bad guys in Syria, who the Syrians, Russians, and Iranians are fighting , are armed, funded and trained by UK/US/EU/Gulf States/Saudis. Western media ignores crimes against Syrian-held areas but inflates every Syrian misdeed.

    Max Boot is a hardworking “Russian” immigrant who is making our country even greater than it is.

    He’s the James Brown of military adventurism – the hardest working man in warmongery.

  37. I’m confused, does Boot want us to intervene in Yemen on their behalf, or help the Saudis finish wiping them off the face of the earth? I thought the neocons were trying to not draw attention to this war because there was no way to spin it positively for their friends in the House of Saud.

  38. Boot mentions Russia three times among the “real threats.” This is what it’s really about – fanning Cold War 2.0.

  39. Trump is “ignoring” the trade “war” with China? Ignoring the (allegedly Putin-ordered) assassination attempt in Britain by expelling 60 Rooskies? Etc., etc.

    But, of course, the issue isn’t “a few thousand Indios”. It’s the principle of a Latin American bums’ rush.

    The plain fact is America in my lifetime has already significantly Latinized. We’re not Brazil yet, but we’ve gone from something very, very different than Brazil, to something quite a bit closer. We won’t actually be “America” again even if immigration was ended today. But as the Hispanics are the lone group with above-replacement fertility and the immigration continues, we’re definitely headed toward Brazilification, in my kids’ lifetimes.

    ~~

    And for the record, these Indios are not moving to another part of their “ancestral homeland”. That’s MexAm propaganda. The various American Indian tribes are–mostly–flat out different peoples from these Central American Indians. In some cases from completely different migrations out of the Asia, with completely different language families. If these guys had tried to “caravan” here before the white man showed up, their caravan would have come to a wonderfully rude end–actually long before they were ever near the border, but certainly the American Indians would have made short work of them.

    They want to look at these people as just 1500 instead of looking at them in the context being 1500 on top of 50 million-plus over the past fifty years. We've already had the largest mass migration of humans in history and we don't want any more.

    Yeah, there are already Indios living in their ancestral homelands. They are called Apache, Sioux, etc. Too many people accept this notion that all Indios have a claim on all of the US. But they forget that the Aztecs and others from further south never settled in what is now the USA and would have been violently opposed had they tried.

Your historical racial divide also persists and you have to force the various citizens to live and work among one another under threat of government action.

    Four, your nation has a major drug problem ranging from the abuse of illegal substances to the abuse of prescribed ones. The social and financial costs of this problem are destroying families and communities throughout the middle and bottom tiers of your nation, ie. the bulk of the population.

    Five, your nations’ infrastructure, once the envy of the world, is now in a major state of disrepair costing untold amounts in loss of time and money due to unnecessary power outages, car repairs, etc.

    Six, you’re spending more on your military than the next several largest spending nations combined with money you do not have defending wealthy first-world areas from threats that they themselves could handle.

    Maybe the problem is just the definition of "his country". Boot has a difference of opinion about what "his country" refers.

    What world does Max Boot live in? Or rather, how insulated is the top 1% from the major daily problems that most Americans face?

    The article reads like bad parody. War crimes in Syria. He really wants to go there? Seriously?

    Boot showed great restrain not to name failure to pass a larger tax cut for the Koch Bros., as well as reducing the capital gains rate as the real threats facing Trump’s presidency.

    I mean, come on, priorities people. Where would we be without Max Boot to tell us what the real threats are facing the US on a daily basis?

    Actually, Jews vote by strong margins for the Democratic Party, which is the less hawkish major party. (Consider the Iran nuclear deal, for instance.)

    It's interesting that you find it interesting that Jews are over-represented among hawks, but not that Jews are likewise over-represented among doves (Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Glenn Greenwald, et cetera.)

    Also, I think that the number of ethnic Jews is somewhat understated by the official numbers, which IIRC are collected to help provide religious services to members of the armed forces. As I recall, the share of members of the armed forces professing no religion is much larger than that of the general population, and I think that ethnic Jews are more likely than members of other ethnicities to profess no religion.

    “the Democratic Party, which is the less hawkish major party.”

    Right, in the last century, the Republican Woodrow Wilson dragged us into the useless and bloody First World War–oh wait, Wilson was a Democrat.

    Well then, Republican Roosevelt got us into the Second World W–oh, wait, Democrat too.

    Almost --

    To be fair, if you believe we're in a sixth party system--which seems pretty undeniable to me--then the Republican party in our current system has been the more hawkish party.

    The Republicans were clearly the more hawkish party for the last couple decades of the Cold War. I'd say it started with the denouement of the Vietnam War, the '68 convention, certainly McGovern's candidacy and the Democrat's defunding South Vietnam after US withdrawal effectively ceding it to the commies.

    That said, none of this obviates Anon[168]'s point. There are a bunch of these hawkish "right wing" Jews, who are big on swinging around American military power for their pet projects all over the world, but have no interest in actually conserving the existing American nation--what "right wingers" are supposed to do--but in fact cheerlead it's destruction.

    They are indeed scummy slimy schmucks--exploiting goyim bodies, blood and treasure for their world torquing projects, while full of contempt for us--and should be called out as such.

    Boot's right about one thing - the small and now dispersing caravan was never any kind of threat. In fact it wasn't even news. I think I could count on one finger, the number of Hondurans I've met since I visited Honduras more than 45 years ago and it's not that I've haven't met and lived among plenty of immigrants, including ones from Latin America. Just not Hondurans.

    Max Boot is a hardworking "Russian" immigrant who is making our country even greater than it is.

    Clearly he has his nice little career here strictly as a result of his merit.

    Maximum Boot is a good example of an immigrant who comes here and advocates against us, the host country, for more immigration and/or a nationless world. Time after time, a judge ruling against the nation and for open borders is a member of a foreign identity group, aka immigrants, aka special, extra-nice hardworking folks, as opposed to the lazy gentile trash impeding the diversity imperium.

    Diversity is a euphemism for conquest by a coalition of immigrants, a way of exempting themselves from scrutiny of self interest. Of course immigrants want more, much more, immigration. The diversity coalition is allowed to operate as if they didn’t have a point of view, an interest, as if xenophilic superiority was an inalienable right.

    Another question is what is Max Boot’s position on “infiltrators” being let into Israel. If it is what I suspect, it is 180 * different to what his position is here. I … can’t …. quite …. connect … the … dots.

    I’ll give him this: unlike beneficiaries of nepotism like Kristol and Podhoretz, he actually has talent. He’s written some good books on military history, but he the usual tribal blind spot.
    My theory on invade the world, invite the world is that it’s a form of hedging their bets. Keep Israel secure if things get bad for the diaspora, keep American borders open just in case the Arabs ever win.

    I just listened to a radio discussion with Max Boot about a new book that he’s written on Edward Lansdale (a Vietnam-era military intelligence adviser). In the program, he made a number of statements that didn’t sound very credible and he also failed to make a strong connection between his historical conclusions and the sorts of contemporary policy prescriptions that he usually advocates towards places like Iran and Afghanistan. And, after the program, I learned that Edward Lansdale is already a fairly well-known figure (I’d never heard of him); though Boot did say that he got new access to personal materials documenting Lansdales’ longtime romance with his Filipina mistress and later wife, so I can see how that will be a solid addition to the literature and will add some interest for future students at the Army War College… And just now I see that Lansdale’s Wikipedia entry has started listing Boot’s new book under the “Further reading” heading along with a review of it from The New Yorker.

    Additionally, several months ago on the same radio program, I heard Max Boot talking about how the US should essentially turn Afghanistan into a permanent US protectorate because “it wouldn’t cost that much.” He also went on about Trump and how his very existence violates the promise of Boot’s own sacred and patriotic personal story, and why that makes Boot himself unusually well-suited to advise the government and US Military High Command (I’m exaggerating slightly).

    So from what I’ve seen, Max Boot is a mediocre talent and generally unappealing “public intellectual” with a track history of failed policy prescriptions and ideological self-contradictions. The most interesting thing about him is not what he says or thinks, but why he keeps being invited into the public square to share his opinions. And that may not be because of his ethnic background (though he’s undoubtedly third-cousins with a high percentage of the other public policy s̶c̶h̶l̶o̶c̶k̶ ̶j̶o̶c̶k̶s authorities out there). No, Max Boot for all his flat, Dustin Hoffmanesque-voice and seeming moral tone-deafness, is actually an accomplished singer: he sings the right tune for the right people each and every performance, and that’s why he always ends up on stage no matter how wrong he really is. Max Boot is a command public policy performer. But who’s the commander?

    Certainly over the long run emigration from sub Saharan Africa is a far greater threat to the US, and civilization in general, than a few thousand Indios moving from one part of their ancestral homeland to another part. But I gather that is not Boot‘s point.
     
    Would a sub-saharan download be worse? Sure.

    But, of course, the issue isn't "a few thousand Indios". It's the principle of a Latin American bums' rush.

    The plain fact is America in my lifetime has already significantly Latinized. We're not Brazil yet, but we've gone from something very, very different than Brazil, to something quite a bit closer. We won't actually be "America" again even if immigration was ended today. But as the Hispanics are the lone group with above-replacement fertility and the immigration continues, we're definitely headed toward Brazilification, in my kids' lifetimes.

    ~~

    And for the record, these Indios are not moving to another part of their "ancestral homeland". That's MexAm propaganda. The various American Indian tribes are--mostly--flat out different peoples from these Central American Indians. In some cases from completely different migrations out of the Asia, with completely different language families. If these guys had tried to "caravan" here before the white man showed up, their caravan would have come to a wonderfully rude end--actually long before they were ever near the border, but certainly the American Indians would have made short work of them.

    But, of course, the issue isn’t “a few thousand Indios”. It’s the principle of a Latin American bums’ rush.

    They want to look at these people as just 1500 instead of looking at them in the context being 1500 on top of 50 million-plus over the past fifty years. We’ve already had the largest mass migration of humans in history and we don’t want any more.

    And for the record, these Indios are not moving to another part of their “ancestral homeland”.

    Yeah, there are already Indios living in their ancestral homelands. They are called Apache, Sioux, etc. Too many people accept this notion that all Indios have a claim on all of the US. But they forget that the Aztecs and others from further south never settled in what is now the USA and would have been violently opposed had they tried.

No, Max Boot for all his flat, Dustin Hoffmanesque-voice and seeming moral tone-deafness, is actually an accomplished singer: he sings the right tune for the right people each and every performance, and that's why he always ends up on stage no matter how wrong he really is.

    He's not an American. He adds zero value. (Actually negative value.)

    Boot is almost a poster child for the point that importing a high IQ elite is as big a disaster--potentially worse--than the "cheap labor" disaster. The guy shows up, gets some academic gigs and has elite media platform ... to push policies in the interest of his group and shower contempt on the actual Americans whose ancestors built the nation and who themselves keep it running today. (And please don't tell me there's no "Jewish privilege", when this turd always has an elite media platform to spout off.)

    You nailed it.

    As aside too many people in the HBD movement rejoiced over the fact that high IQ foreigners were coming to the U.S. to live. Sadly these short sighted peeps don’t get it. They are going to be our new intellectual elite and they will bring with them their culture and to promote polices that help their people not ours.

    Like many a would-be authoritarian before him, Trump ignores the real threats that his country faces, preferring to manufacture nonexistent crises that enable him to play on popular prejudice to consolidate his own power.
     
    Is Trump ignoring the real threats that his country faces? OK, let's say you are the leader of any country not named the USA.

    One, your nation is running a trade deficit of nearly half a trillion dollars per year. Your nation is no longer self-sufficient in items necessary for its defense, having outsourced or offshored the production and sourcing of the overwhelming majority of those items.

    Two, your nation is running enormous budget deficits year after year and has accumulated an astronomical amount of national debt that will never be paid off. You are dependent on low to zero interest rates to keep the debt payments relatively in check. Any significant rise in those rates would cause debt payments to devour the already bloated budget.

    Three, your nation has more people than any other nation in history not named China or India, and your demographic makeup has been so altered, and continues to be, that ethnic strife and possibly future secession of smaller areas might be in the cards. Your historical racial divide also persists and you have to force the various citizens to live and work among one another under threat of government action.

    Four, your nation has a major drug problem ranging from the abuse of illegal substances to the abuse of prescribed ones. The social and financial costs of this problem are destroying families and communities throughout the middle and bottom tiers of your nation, ie. the bulk of the population.

    Five, your nations' infrastructure, once the envy of the world, is now in a major state of disrepair costing untold amounts in loss of time and money due to unnecessary power outages, car repairs, etc.

    Six, you're spending more on your military than the next several largest spending nations combined with money you do not have defending wealthy first-world areas from threats that they themselves could handle. Your military is deployed to so many places, and you have commitments with so many other nations, that there is a constant threat your nation could be dragged into a war at any time regardless of whether or not it is in your national interest.

    I am sure others could further populate the list. But the bottom line is this. Would any leader in charge of such a nation even entertain Boot's list of the most pressing problems facing us?

    Maybe the problem is just the definition of "his country". Boot has a difference of opinion about what "his country" refers.

    Your list is the real list. Of course, the problem is that Trump is doing nothing to address any of the real threats either. No progress on opioids, budget and military spending are swelling out of control, no progress on infrastructure (in fact Trump will privatize it, which was a disaster in the UK), and simply inflaming racial divisions rather than pursuing Bannon‘s idea of promoting „citizenship“. But Trump and cronies are enriching themselves at the public trough and yelling about the NFL and treating a Central American PR stunt as a grave threat to the Republic. Between Boot on one side and Trump on the other we are doomed.

    "the Democratic Party, which is the less hawkish major party."
     
    Right, in the last century, the Republican Woodrow Wilson dragged us into the useless and bloody First World War--oh wait, Wilson was a Democrat.

    Well then, Republican Roosevelt got us into the Second World W--oh, wait, Democrat too.

    Well anyhow, in the evil Republican conspiracy that was the Cold War, we invaded Korea--oh, well technically a Democrat was president, but ...

    But Vietnam! --oh darn, Democrats all around ... okay but then one president was was elected on a platform to end that war and--darn it, this time it was a Republican ...

    Okay, just ignore all that.

    Let's start counting from 2003 when evil George Bush invaded Iraq.

    Whew!

    So yeah, as I was saying, "...the Democratic party, which is the less hawkish major party ..."

    Almost —

    To be fair, if you believe we’re in a sixth party system–which seems pretty undeniable to me–then the Republican party in our current system has been the more hawkish party.

    The Republicans were clearly the more hawkish party for the last couple decades of the Cold War. I’d say it started with the denouement of the Vietnam War, the ’68 convention, certainly McGovern’s candidacy and the Democrat’s defunding South Vietnam after US withdrawal effectively ceding it to the commies.

    That said, none of this obviates Anon[168]’s point. There are a bunch of these hawkish “right wing” Jews, who are big on swinging around American military power for their pet projects all over the world, but have no interest in actually conserving the existing American nation–what “right wingers” are supposed to do–but in fact cheerlead it’s destruction.

    They are indeed scummy slimy schmucks–exploiting goyim bodies, blood and treasure for their world torquing projects, while full of contempt for us–and should be called out as such.

  121. Ignoring foreign “crises” would be a feature, not a bug, of Trump’s presidency.

    The ‘caravan’ is about asylum: it was organized to bring these people to the US in order to apply for asylum — you can call it an ‘invasion’, a ‘threat to US sovereignty’, etc if you want — or oppose it on what is essentially a technicality: that Mexico is a safe country so they should apply for asylum there (people would argue with you about that) — but per international law, people have a right to apply for asylum, and to have their application fairly heard; the US is a signatory to these treaties (as is DE, where currently the courts side with about half of those who were initially denied asylum/refugee status) — this is the real problem, and a real existential threat to white countries — it’s a great opportunity for a Stephen Miller speech explaining this; that it is necessary for white countries to withdraw from these treaties.

    Actually, Jews vote by strong margins for the Democratic Party, which is the less hawkish major party. (Consider the Iran nuclear deal, for instance.)

    It's interesting that you find it interesting that Jews are over-represented among hawks, but not that Jews are likewise over-represented among doves (Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Glenn Greenwald, et cetera.)

    Also, I think that the number of ethnic Jews is somewhat understated by the official numbers, which IIRC are collected to help provide religious services to members of the armed forces. As I recall, the share of members of the armed forces professing no religion is much larger than that of the general population, and I think that ethnic Jews are more likely than members of other ethnicities to profess no religion.

    By what eveidence do you claim the Dems are the less hawkish party?

    Let’s see. WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam are all Dem wars. And the major Dem players were in full support of Iraq II (think John Kerry and HRC).

    You must be utterly deluded to think the power base of the Dems aren’t just as enthralled by the US Empire as the GOP.
