This article is nonsense. When has the US Congress ever voted against a war that was desired by the 1 percent?
The USA has been at war 91 percent of the years it has existed as a nation. These endless wars predate the Neocons. They predate North Korea. They predate the founding of Israel and dual citizens of “dubious loyalties”.
The United States of America was founded as a nation via war . On founding it engaged itself in wars in the Chikmunga wars. the North West Indian Wars, Tecumsehs wars, the Seminole wars and other wars too numerous to mention against the First nations peoples, all of them with the USA claiming itself the aggrieved party.
When they were not at war domestically killing the First nations poeples and extinguishing their Cultures and Civilisations the USA would war against itself in the Whiskey Rebellion, Shay’s Rebellion and its Civil war. When killing the First nations peoples for their lands not enough and they got tired of killing one another they entered into wars again against Britain once more and Mexico and then Spain. They made war on the French. They landed troops in China to kill the Chinese. They made war on peoples in Burma and in Formasa , in Sumatra and the Ivory Coast then turned again to their own locale to make war on the Yakima, The Cheyenne , The Utes, The Apache, The Navajo all of this before the year 1900.
This ENDLESS war IS the United States of America from its founding and Congress has never done anything to stop it. Ms Lee was the single person to vote against that AUMF showing it was distinctly non partisan. These same voices were silent about that AUMF when Obama was expanding US involvement in wars in Syria and Yemen and Libya.
Quite frankly for the sake of the rest of the world the ONLY thing I can see ending these endless wars, is the dissolution of that entity known as the United States of America. It is certainly not going to be done by those warmongers in Congress.
