Congress writes something into their contract called "necessary profit". There's no competition and using the market to create efficiency. Instead, Congress deliberately pays above market price for everything.

Get troops out, people complain. Leave troop there, people complain.


Can you show me where people were complaining about us moving the troops out...other than politicians and generals of course?

I can show you polls from many different forums of all stripes where the American People on this one thing have been in complete agreement on ending the wars.

Very true.

I think the deep state wants the war just as it is, undecided and continuing on and on…


They won’t win the war by expending the proper amount of resources because I think the DS wants another war in Iran soon.


They also want neocon and neo liberal economics---stagnating economies and low growth.


They also want American gridlock, which they certainly have…


A terror element in ISIS and Al Qaeda, which again they certainly have

Obama the dreamer, Trump the right-wing populist, or the next president who wants to fix anything will be dealt with as Obama and Trump were---upended in failure and submission to the Deep State.


The folly of Trump is still dynamic so no telling what they’ll do to him

I think it's somewhat likely that a sort of "silent coup" has taken place in the White House. The initially reluctant POTUS has come around to thinking like they want him to think. Afghanistan, Syria, Venezuela, NK....
