What if they threw a war and no one came?
It's taken hundreds of thousands of innocent lives and trillions of dollars, but it appears that most people think that war isn't very fun anymore.
US President Donald Trump’s administration has reached out to at least 21 of its allies for troops and logistical support to prevent a resurgence of Daesh in Syria, but nearly half have declined so far, The Wall Street Journal said Tuesday.
While there has been a lack of enthusiasm so far, officials told the newspaper they are convinced that enough allies will come to support the US
“It’s a little bit early to say where this is going to settle out,” a senior US defence official told the Journal.
Imagine that. Our allies don't want to support yet another of our wars.
Do you know who else isn't interested in our wars? People in the military and their families.
Veterans and military families overwhelmingly support plans to fully withdraw troops from Afghanistan and similarly favor a complete U.S. military pullout from Syria, according to a new poll from a conservative activist group released Wednesday.
Concerned Veterans for America, which has close ties to the conservative Koch brothers’ network and the Trump administration, said the results indicate that President Donald Trump should follow through with his public comments to bring those troops home...
Less than 40 percent of those surveyed said that keeping troops in Afghanistan is still necessary for the safety of the United States. Sixty percent said they support removing all U.S. personnel from Afghanistan.
So soldiers are tired of being sent into an endless meat grinder in Afghanistan.
Do you know who is even less supportive of our war there? The Afghan people.
A new United Nations report said that Afghan and U.S. forces killed more civilians in Afghanistan than the Taliban and other insurgents did in the first quarter of 2019.
It's hard to find support for our wars anywhere outside of large campaign donors.
The news media has almost stopped reporting on it entirely.
Maybe that's why the special inspector general for Afghan reconstruction says "now almost every indicia, metric for success or failure is now classified or nonexistent."
War? What war? Where did you hear about a war? Not from any official sources.
It's the opposite of Vietnam's Follies. Now they won't tell you anything, and no one is asking questions anyway.
Not even when war crimes happen.
