I’m unable to see in Trump or Sanders anything more than entertainment value, despite their tepidity to indulge in the extremely hawkish rhetoric of their competitors. Wasn’t Obama seen as “anti-war” before he gained control of the reins of power? The Peace Prize winner proceeded to unleash a hellstorm of almost indiscriminate drone strikes across the Middle East, strikes that kill innocents “90% of the time”, according to the Intercept‘s Drone Papers series.
If Trump or Sanders ends up in the White House, how likely is it that they’ll stick to whatever quasi-antiwar statement they made once or twice throughout their campaign?
I miss Ron Paul.
