Corker’s Proposal Hands Trump A Dangerous, Open-Ended War Authorization


Corker’s Proposal Hands Trump A Dangerous, Open-Ended War Authorization

Daphne Eviatar

While the media is focused on the Trump administration’s strikes against Syria, there’s another effort to entrench and expand the U.S. global war posture that’s getting less attention. Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), chair of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, recently announced that he plans to introduce new legislation that would authorize the U.S.


We have met the enemy and it is us. We lost the Korean War. We lost the Vietnam War. Our CIA creates terrorists to fight our military. It is so evil it is beyond description and it’s real. We are global oil pirates, gangsters, crusaders in camo sucking the hope from the entrails of entire societies Americans discard like Bud cans. We are the Romans and we are imploding from blind allegiance; barbaric, morally bankrupt, unbridled greed and the Congressional Lemmings who do the bidding of the World Bank, Wall Street and Pentagon. Did you see the CIA burn the Afghanistan poppies? Did you see them burn the poppies? Romans. Our CIA and military already murder anyone on the planet they wish and indeed, have a kill list. Murderers do not need authorization. They’re murderers.


I think you kind of preempted any comment any of us could have made. You can drop the mike now…
