    If you were king I would watch your news propaganda channel.

    Might even apply for a job.

    You can throw a couple friends in too. They need to be kept in check as well. Seriously start a Youtube channel.

    The only thing I find interesting in all of this is that Tucker Carlson has gone completely off the reservation lately yet retained his Fox News platform. Actually this has been true for a while now. he'll soon be regarded alongside 'crazy old' Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan in US media circles. And that's if he's lucky ;)

    I've been following Tucker for years. He's has never had a problem calling out BS no matter which side.

    Oh but he was staunchly in favor of the regime change operations in Iraq and Afghanistan back in the Bush presidency. He has done a 180 and become reborn as a staunch non interventionist. Ann Coulter has undergone a similar transformation over the course of a similar timeline. And I remember well who opposed Operation Iraqi Freedom, it was and still is a cause I felt then and still do feel today very strongly about.

    That's a good thing. Some of us realize things we believed in, in the past don't really work and are able to evolve. This regime change shit unless from within, doesn't seem to work that often. When you have these so called horrible strong men usually in the middle east, once they are toppled you realize why they were horrible pricks. The people they were keeping down are a lot worse.

    Lots of dems were calling for regime change in Syria. I can only imagine what he is keeping at bay should he be removed. Be glad people can evolve and admit past mistakes. It's a good thing.

    Oh I agree, I think the gaining of wisdom is a wonderful thing indeed. Oftentimes it never happens.

    There's always plenty of room at the Inn ;)

    Great

    Some people become very attached to their paradigms. They pick a side and wear their colors and defend their view to the death and plug their ears at anything contrary.

    What's the use in that?

    I am re-examining much lately that I used to be obstinate about.

    "The U.S. is pointing to the breadth of the failed plot as evidence that, no matter how badly it went, Maduro’s days are numbered with the country having plunged into dysfunction and the economy in a shambles. “This was just the tip of the iceberg,” said a senior administration official who asked not to be named. Many close to Maduro were in on the endgame, the official said, and their eagerness to send him packing shows how isolated he is."

    Interesting indeed.

    I'm glad that we can all come together in our non-interventionism. It's funny to be part of the War on Terror generation. I hope we'll internalize these lessons forever.
