For Americans who are unaware, there is a war going on, one where thus far we may well have the first genuinely clear enemy in half a dozen generations. We have a real “axis of evil,” human traffickers, John McCain and Lindsey Graham, the CIA and its al Qaeda franchises and Israel’s ISIS army of Palestinian and Chechen recruits. No Americans died today fighting this war. Instead, Syrians, Kurds and Iraqi’s died fighting a war America started where America is financing and backing the enemy. This is a hell of a way to celebrate American independence but is so often the case, America is snuffing freedoms out around the world. Am I wrong?
