The longest war in our history continues without end and has cost over one trillion dollars and is is not even a presidential campaign issue. The Empire just continues endless war all around the world and it is not even an issue. A sad commentary on the state of the US.

Fortunately I have a rational sane candidate to support.

US bombs another hospital and after 4 or 5 different stories settles on "mistake". It was not a mistake. It has happened too many times to be a mistake. It is what the American Empire does.
