Has anyone else thought about what we would do if foreigners sent drones over our land to kill some bad guys but ended up killing lots of innocent people? Any patriot would naturally see that as unacceptable and retaliate any way we could. This no-brainer leads me to think that the U.S. is deliberately creating enemies to justify wars for oil and pipelines.
The military-industrial complex, which President Dwight Eisenhower warned us against, is forcing us into permanent war by funding politicians. Even President Barack Obama has increased the Pentagon budget while cutting necessary programs. That's why I am voting for Jill Stein of the Green Party for President. She has pledged not to take a penny from corporate handlers.
