This American War on Drugs – On The Media – WNYC: http://www.wnyc.org/story/on-the-media-2017-04-14
Excellent episode. The piece titled “The Man Who Declared War On Drugs” got me angry. Love Billie Holiday, and this racist a-hole destroyed her.
Not that that is the only upsetting information conveyed this episode.
Giant Bomb Was ‘Right Weapon’ For Attack On ISIS, U.S. General Says http://n.pr/2otJ0nG
Will trust the military’s judgement here.
Just worried about “mission creep” in the context of the never-ending “War on Terror”, the long wars in Afghanistan and Iraq (versus ISIL and the Taliban, and violent extremism in general), and balancing that against long-needed infrastructure spending here at home.
If they are using these MOAB wisely, and there are still plenty of them, and it’s not hurting “Hearts & Minds” efforts (the long-term cultural efforts that can backslide when there ends up being a lot of civilian collateral damage).
Still skeptical of Trump. I have more trust in McMaster’s and Mattis’ judgement.
