      Mary, Bill etc

      Liberals can push for reducing military scope to move money from war toward health, education, welfare etc; and conservatives as a way of reducing government. Then debates and votes could occur as to the disposition of saved sums. Libertarian Republicans like Ron Paul pushing anti war agenda allows other Republicans to do so without being seen as leftists. The military industrial complex just like police state prison complex is a monster that feeds on the body politic like a cancer.

      Peace

      Tom,

      That's great news. I read last evening the recently retired director of Mossad is openly criticizing Netanyahu's policies concerning stalled peace initiatives and recalcitrance regarding 1967 borders.

      > 1) The support of liberals and conservatives - defying the leaders of both parties - for a bill to pull the U.S. military out of the Libya operation, which led GOP leaders to shelve the bill, signaled how abruptly the politics of U.S. warmaking have changed, the Washington Post reports. On Wednesday, House discontent with the Libya military operation - and with warmaking in general - seemed to boil over, the Post says. An early warning came last week, when the House narrowly voted down a proposal to demand a speedy transition of U.S. forces out of Afghanistan.
