Based on our country’s continued counterproductive regime-change war policies, it's clear that leaders on both sides of the aisle haven't learned the painful lessons of decades of interventionist regime-change wars most recently in Iraq, Libya & now Syria.
The same hypocrites calling for an intervention in Syria because they’re so “concerned” about civilian lives, are going to keep aiding & abetting Saudi Arabia’s devastating war in Yemen, all in order to preserve a massive $2 billion arms deal with Riyadh.
Julian Assange remains trapped in the Ecuadorian embassy after 6 years for telling the truth while the criminals he exposed like Hillary Clinton who armed jihadists in Syria and turned Libya into a safe haven for slave-selling terrorists still roam free.
The woman who took tens of millions of dollars from Saudi Arabia, the most authoritarian, repressive, restrictive, misogynistic regime in the world, wants to lecture us about “authoritarian tendencies”.

Hillary Clinton says she's worried about what an unchecked Trump could do to the government if there isn't a "very big rejection" of his "authoritarian tendencies" in the midterm elections https://cnn.it/2DdxRlQ
As Corporate News Media Ubiquitously beats drum for war, pro-war establishment hacks try shaming people for calling them out, it doesn't work. WashingtonPost pushed every war in my lifetime.

What’s alarming, Susan, is how people on the left, like you, embrace the narrative of the right, like Trump, that journalists are “traitors". Journalists are people, like you. Some make mistakes. Some risk their lives to report honestly & such language increases the risks.
The US Senate voted 93-7 for a $674 billion military spending bill, again choosing to spend over half of the federal discretionary budget on the military. Every single Senate Democrat supported the bill. https://www.democracynow.org/2018/9/20/headlines/senate_passes_674_billion_military_spending_bill…
Tulsi Gabbard: “There is no doubt that if the U.S. and its allies are successful in their war to topple Assad, the most powerful forces on the ground (Al-Qaeda) would take over, and religious minorities or anyone who disagreed with Al-Qaeda’s ideology would be targeted.” #Syria
Tulsi Gabbard: “Just look at the situation in Libya. In order to ‘save’ the Libyan people, we completely destroyed their country. It’s a failed state. They are under the domination of terrorists and slave merchants where women and children are publicly sold in marketplaces.”
If the headlines read “Putin’s bombs and siege put 5 million children in Yemen at risk of dying from starvation”, instead of US-UK-backed Saudi Arabia, there would be a global uproar in the mainstream media the likes of which have never been seen before.
As many as 5 million children are at risk of famine in Yemen as US-UK-backed Saudi Arabia continues bombing and starving the country with total impunity.
But of course no uproar from all those hypocrites who shed crocodile tears for the children in Syria.
Aside from valid questions about selective release, I continue to find it odd that those who have spent the last two years pronouncing the Trump/Russia story literally one of the most important ever in US history are so angry we're going to find out more about it.
So the Norwegian state was clueless about what was happening in Libya but decided to join Obama & NATO to bomb the country anyway, turning the once thriving North African nation into a terrorist hotbed.
Now slave-selling jihadists rule.
Good job, Norway.
