The editors of the Sun Herald, the leading paper for Biloxi-Gulfport and South Mississippi, certainly are able to see good sense through the war hype.
Here is some smart commentary about the “costs” of America’s very full plate of wars:
The United States is currently planning war games with South Korea, which would seem to indicate that the military option is on the table for that country. Saber-rattling is now getting louder against Iran with the Israelis saying that the United States military has planned targeted air strikes there and that a military option is now seriously considered. John Bolton in a TV interview said we have a new axis of evil consisting of Syria, Iran and Venezuela. We are going to have to find a lot of money to put all these ideas into action. It definitely feels like us against the world, and I for one do not believe we can afford it.
Time to rethink what our role in the world should be.
Listen up Washington. John Bolton is not selling like he used to.
