Save The World


And of course note how blithely the hawks blow off the price tag, which these same people don't for anything else. This leads me to suspect that whatever the agenda is, it ain't Freedom.

This point isn't made often enough. Along with assorted other problematic aspects, military inventions cost a lot of fucking money. And if all the people who are gung ho for military interventions today wouldn't, on some other more peaceful day, contemplate instead spending $10 billion to do something like build sewer systems and water treatment plants somewhere, then it isn't unreasonable to conclude that they really like blowing things up and don't really care much about the helping people part.
