There's a difference between what Ham said and "Ground troops TO
invade Libya." Ham said US ground troops are likely to be discussed if
international troops do invade.
Not defending Obama or the war machine (my posting history fully vets my long standing position against the guy), but the headline of the article is
sensationalized in the same manner as the vast majority of Alex Jones' news stories are.
As to the premise of the OP.
Endless war was OK back when the US was building a middle class empire on it. Now days, with these war efforts
granting wealth to multinational firms and built on the crushed bones of the US' middle class, hell no!
To the "will they pay the troops" comment, I'm extremely interested to see how that plays out. I see two potential outcomes if they stop paying
1. Mass defection with a strong potential of armed uprising from our troops.
2. Mass casualities of US troops who are in the trenches worrying more about their wives & kids being able to afford food & rent than they are about
the Jihadist sniper across the canyon. Distractions are not good in the middle of a firefight.
The fact that Congress, the president, and the TSA/Homeland security clowns will get their paychecks but our troops may have to sit and spin is simply
disgusting. The fact that they are considering a marked uptick to a war while starring unpaid troops in the eyes is even more disgusting.
