It’s Looking A Lot Like “Groundhog Day

I am referring to our wars of conquest of those barbaric groups AQ and ISIS….. We have been fighting one or the other for about 20 years…the other is a fairly recent add to the War on Terror….. The problem is that we keep doing the same thing over and over and spinning our wheels in the process….kinda like the movie “Ground Hog Day”…..only with guns, bombs, death and destruction.
The current situation in Syria reminds us again that we are failing in our post-9/11 wars. We have accomplished neither the strategic objectives set forth by the Bush administration nor those of the Obama administration. Both administrations have had notable successes and achieved periodic tactical and operational progress, but neither created sustained strategic success. The jury on the current administration is still out, but on the campaign trail the President suggested we can defeat ISIS with military force alone—bombing the *@#! out of them. To put it kindly, this approach misses the mark. America has led a concerted leadership decapitation campaign against both al Qaeda and ISIS for a decade and a half. Such a campaign is necessary, but not sufficient. How much longer will we take this approach before we learn that we are waking up to the same day over and over again?

And this new administration is definitely not the group to end this war with a victory….they, like their predecessors, are nothing more the hammer to help the M-IC nail down massive profits with NO intention of ever ending this gravy train.

Calling all anti-war activists and Trump resistors. Veterans for Peace will be protesting Trump’s military budget in Washington D.C. on May 29 and May 30, Memorial Day…
“…In response to President Trump’s outrageous budget proposal, including a $54 billion increase for the Pentagon, VFP and other veterans groups will not be silent. Planning for this was started in response to VFP’s galvanizing statement about Trump’s Military Budget and our desire and responsibility as veterans, citizens and human beings to express our strong resistance to his policies and our commitment to find a better way to peace…” ~ Veterans for Peace

15 Septembers Ago

About three weeks after I began my teaching career in 2014, the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks rolled around. I had decided that I would have my students write about it on that day, and that we would talk about how the world had changed since then. 1,627 more words

A Story With A Happy Ending

I’m in the mood for a happier story today … hope you are too!

It was a chance meeting of two politicians at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last week, and it went largely unnoticed, lost in the noise and bluster that defined the convention.  625 more words
