    Right now the US are getting "sucked" into another war. Since we are provoking continously other countries lately, then we are asking for new wars. Because we irritate Yemen by having battleships close to their soil, they did fire a couple of missiles as an warning to stay away. Now the US retaliated by striking 3 radar stations on their coast with cruise missiles. The Yemen war is basically fought between Saudia Arabia and Yemen. Saudia Arabia uses US supplied weapons to do so, and even bombs hospitals and civilians with it. So we are on an fantastic "course" to be at war in four countries. Congratulations US. I wonder what Trump or Hillary would do, if in charge. What an mess.

    It is a bad situation but I doubt many people care. Yemen has no way to threaten anyone. More think this is an event that could ultimately involve both the Saudis (with our help) and Iran. They're on different teams religiously and that's what makes it interesting. Are we being mercenaries as a way to ask that oil production stays high which equals lower prices at the pump ?

    T.J. Yes I agree, people here don't care about other people or other countries. We are very selective. Who cares about a few bombs on an bunch of innocent kids who don't live here. great mentality; sounds like Trump. Ask Michele Obama; she at least cares.

    According to Washingtons blog, America has been at war 222 years out of 239, that was as of 2015, when someone was thoughtful enough to bring it to people's attention.

    Since I'm a newbie, I don't know if it's okay to post a link to another blog, so I won't do it prematurely.

    Thanks kindly. My only friends are my wife of 26 years and my faithful daily companion, the Dingo, but he's been domesticated and not from Down Under, others are just mere acquaintances.

    I'm curious, wondering what if Mrs. Clinton or Mr. Sanders would have done if either had been elected president?
