    Almost time, Anti-War Protestors

    You've deafened us with your silence for quite a long time. 8 years to be exact. Normally out there protesting. Normally not tolerating drone strikes or special forces strikes that kill civilians, you've no news anchors in Iraq nor Afghanistan, you're shipping our men and women back and forth by the tens of thousands right this second, we're at war abroad right this second and yet I never see any of it opposed by the Left anymore. Indefinite detentions, case ain't no one noticed, Obama is leaving, Gitmo is open. Course, I should say that, Obama may just pardon all of them, ship them to Pakistan or Indonesia or something.

    Remember your outrage? Remember when this prison was what was creating terrorism on a global scale? We've thousands of troops in Afghanistan, we've thousands of troops in Iraq. Striking in Yemen and Syria......and where are our anti-war demonstrations? The calls that our President is a killer? And responsible for these deaths, especially the innocent.

    I recall Bush was harassed about sending his own daughter, would anyone dare suggest Sasha suit up and go fight the Taliban?

    You can all come out of your disingenuous fake holes....come out from under the bridges you live under.....2017 will be a good year for you. You're back in business!

    Ah yes -- perhaps Cindy SheeWithNoBrain will come back on the scene. And, all the Code Pinkos -- where have they been hiding? They'll be back -- all shiny and new. Perhaps we can look forward to another one of their "food strikes," where the only thing they consume is fortified chocolate malts.

    Code Pink has been protesting. So have a lot of other groups. Just because the media isn't covering them doesn't mean they aren't out there.
    "Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
    - Robert F. Kennedy (1925-1968), U.S. Senator from New York and U.S. Attorney General

    The Dems are in a real tough spot here. I think the best thing that will come with a Trump presidency is the fact that we won't be going to war with Russia anytime soon. I think we will put boots in Iraq but I also think we will profit from the oil this time around. And rightly so.

    Perhaps you're right. I thought they went home and did the soccer mom thing.

    The media will be hunting them down again, I'm sure.

    I think that, alone, was worth voting for him. Hillary was talking some pretty big talk about that Syrian no-fly zone, even after the Pentagon said it would lead to war with Russia.

    I think we really missed a bullet.

    We can only hope Trump sticks to his non-interventionist policy ideal.

    We've boots in Iraq today, Pickle. More than 5000. We've twice that many in Afghanistan....today. In Iraq....Private.....it is our logistics, intelligence, artillery, airstrikes, and coordination making this assault on the city of Mosul possible perhaps y'all residing on Under-a Rock Blvd weren't aware of that.

    I want to thank my fellow members here for so often providing the visuals, I'm making a point, our illustrious PP provides a perfect example. I'll submit to you that Pickle rises one day and like many others discovers President Trump has troops in Iraq. That Gitmo is still open. And goes to grab his picket sign and paints the anti-war frown on his face. Thanks for services rendered, Pickle.

    Did they protest with their vote, Arrow? Or walk up there and vote for Clinton who was Secretary of State regarding these ongoing wars and policies?

    Do you honestly believe the media would withhold news that conflicts with their agenda ??
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.
