There is zero buy in on any of our military adventurism by any senior officer in the last three administrations, that is not on the current payroll.
Remember Stormin' Norman? Or Mr. Middle East Envoy, Gen. Zinni? They spoke their mind, and boom!, " Thanks we don't need you to talk now, buh
Saying today's Republican party is not wholly complicit in today's ills is a buy in to ignorance, not a denial of.
