Drones under GWB were constantly criticized by The Left but then when Obama took the Presidency he x3 the drone activity but yelling stopped. I thought Obama was going to close Gitmo? 😂
War and oil are in command, leading us lemmings to an unlivable world. We need peace first and environmental action now or billions will die. We seem unable to address this. Perhaps the intelligent lizards who inherit the warmed world will do better in managing their environs.
Hey Matt, love TK. Just a comment based on part of your rebrand thesis. I was in the Army during the Clinton era. All of our interventions during that period were spun as humanitarian. I think some of what we're seeing is a return to norm for the Democratic party. The long war in Afghanistan was the odd period. Much of the recruiting problems we're having now would have been reflected in that time due to low morale and using the military as a social justice type pool had it not been for the drawdowns from Cold War to "peace dividend".
Thanks Matt, as always. Looking forward to your next book project.
I'm sorry, Matt, but this one sailed over my head. I read it twice but still came away confused. I get the re-brand (US Military goes woke as Congress piles on with love and money) but the dive into connectedness lost me. A not at all insane NBC News? That one made my head spin. Legacy media has become the smiling face of insanity. No exceptions there. That's why I'm here.
If you click on link to youtube it takes you to a Jan 6th Trump hearing video, not a military rebrand one.
