I obviously don’t think America’s love for blood and war started in the 80sI was being far too broad in my brush strokes. Perpetual warfare is an American thing. That includes both parties. Party hacks lack ability to assign guilt to their side. You act as if it all started in the 80s. This country has been at war or fighting almost its entire existence. The Revolutionary War, War of 1812, WW1&2 account for a blip of our history. The rest has been at the behest of big money. Truman gave us Korea, LBJ gave us ‘Nam. Clinton bombed the shit out of Orthodox Christians for the sake of Muslims.
