Who will protest Obama’s war?

by Justin Raimondo


All in all, we face a depressing prospect: the Left brain-dead with Obama idolatry, the Right neoconized beyond redemption — and no one left to oppose a futile, draining, and horrifically destructive conflict, a war we cannot afford and which directly contravenes our real interests as a nation. No one, that is, except a clear majority of the American people, who, according to polls, think the battle for Afghanistan is not worth it.

Some Democrats are proposing, in the same way that we have to find the money for social programs, that if we want to continue and or escalate the war, we should find the money to pay for war.
