A huge thank you to the 35 year old Ben Shapiro, who thinks he knows better than the COMMANDER IN CHIEF. I haven’t seen Ben running for POTUS, or hired for any position, or serving in our armed forces, have you? 🤔
When it comes to foreign policy I defer to the Commander in Chief, who has always told us he isn’t going to Telegraph all of his moves, and who has FAR more information than we do about what is happening. When it comes to endless troop deployment and endless wars? (Cont)
I defer to my long held position that America is not an empire. That it is not our job to be the policeman of the world, that our country is safer when our military isn’t involved in dozens of continual wars thousands of miles away. That some of these conflicts have been ongoing
for centuries and are not going to end whether we are there or not. That I want to spare the lives of American soldiers - our sons and daughters - from the continual combat we have placed them in often for no gain. And that holding that position makes me nothing but COMPASSIONATE
Endless war is not good for anyone but those who profit from war. I once had a neoconservative who ran a think tank tell me that we need war, no matter the cost, otherwise there was no way for us to make any money. Yes. I vomited in my mouth and ran.
I have always had this view. You can argue that fighting perpetual war “makes us safer”. There is no way to quantify that. There just isn’t. And we are spending millions of dollars and priceless lives in a conflict that will never end.
This President has been MEASURED and thoughtful in his military response. The same people screaming today are the people who were angry when he bombed with precision in Syria and with what happened in Russia. Arm chair quarterbacking. I trust our President.
