Now this is an “adult” podcast. Not because of the occasional “bad work” that slips out, but the topic.
If you have Democratic liberal snowflake ears or a Republican warfare big Gooferment loyalty, then you’re going to be shocked when Scott lets loose on Reagn, all the Bushes, the Clintons, and DJT45.
The “genocide” in Yemen might be a SLIGHT over statement. When I think of “genocide”, I think of many millions killed. Yemen has “only” racked up over a million. I’m horrified by it but it’s hasn’t drawn any attention from the media.
In his campaign, DJT45 said the right things about “bringing all the girls, boys, women, and men home”from Afghanistan and elsewhere, that I “disliked” him less that HRC. With her, we knew what her stance on “war” (i.e., Libya; the AfPak area, killing OBL, killing others).
I liked Scott’s point that DJT45 had a perfect excuse for ending all this “foreign adventurism” with “not my mistake; it was the Bushes’ and BHO44’s policies”. But for whatever reason, he couldn’t pull it off and allowed himself to be drawn into the mess.
Scott, imho correctly, blames the Deep State putsch against DJT45 with “Russian collusion”.
In any event, you may want to list to him with a pad and pencil a few time, because when he gets on a rant, he just rolls.
I also recommend his book “Fool’s Errand”.
I hope you’re as “touched” as I am about the “Yemen War on Civilian Infrastructure” — in the finest tradition of Abe Lincoln — and the American Navy’s blockage of food and medicine into Yemen.
Why is the USA doing Saudi Arabia’s “were work”?
Every so often I tweet to DJT45 to get us out of this humanitarain disaster.
I am ashamed of “my” role in letting this happen.
