The only current presidential candidate of either party that is truly anti-war is Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.
Tulsi is a four-term congresswoman and a combat veteran of the Iraq War. Again, Philip Giraldi has the story:
In a recent interview with Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, Gabbard doubled down on her anti-war credentials, telling the host that war with Iran would be “devastating,” adding that “I know where this path leads us and I’m concerned because the American people don’t seem to be prepared for how devastating and costly such a war would be… So, what we are facing is, essentially, a war that has no frontlines, total chaos, engulfs the whole region, is not contained within Iran or Iraq but would extend to Syria and Lebanon and Israel across the region, setting us up in a situation where, in Iraq, we lost over 4,000 of my brothers and sisters in uniform. A war with Iran would take far more American lives, it would cost more civilian lives across the region… Not to speak of the fact that this would cost trillions of taxpayer dollars coming out of our pockets to go and pay for this endless war that begs the question as a soldier …
…what are we fighting for? What does victory look like? What is the mission?”
Due to her strong anti-war convictions, Gabbard is being savagely attacked by her own Democrat Party and is being all but totally censored by the mainstream media.
“As I have said over and over: There is only one party in Washington, D.C., and it’s the War Party. And they are at it again.”
In a new study …
… entitled ‘The Age of Impunity?’ by The Policy Institute at Kings College London and Ipsos MORI, 17,000 respondents from 24 countries were asked if they thought other states or organizations were mostly using their influence for good or for bad around the world. Iran is considered by the largest share of people to be exerting a negative influence, with 31 percent. Not too far behind though, is the United States, with 22 percent thinking it currently uses its influence for bad. Read more.
Here at The Ole’ Buzzard’s Blog we could care less about being in a popular “groove.”
Although conservative by inclination, we have been around the block long enough to smell a “Sc … RAT” even before we see one. The “run up” to a war with Iran is stink’n up the neighborhood big time. By some accounts, we’ve pumped over $21,000,000,000,000.00 (That’s a big $21 Trillion) unaccounted for grub into the guts of a ravenous, Military Industrial Leviathan. Now we’re about to dish up more? Why?
It’s good for the economy!
Or is it?

Ike Quote …
“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.” Eisenhower Quotes
Ike Quote …
“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.” Eisenhower Quotes
“We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.”

Put the kiddies to bed and listen up … there’s a salty word or two in the following video. Undoubtedly those who are left of left are slobbering and salivating over anything that will besmirch the current administration. We agonize over adding fuel to their insane fires. But … reason, feeling, intellect and history dictate that we dig in our heels NOW and start ranting about engaging in more undeclared, never ending wars!

The recipe for cooking up a Middle East war has no secret ingredients and is tried and tested. The US is currently in the process of bringing its conflict with Iran to the boil.
For anyone who remembers the build-up to the attack on Iraq, the taste is a familiar one, and so is the cooking process. Mix in some accusations and flimsy evidence, place in the pressure cooker and keep the heat on high. Sprinkle a military build-up across the region and serve with a side of freedom fries.
ICYMI heads into the kitchen to make the perfect recipe for disaster.zFrom Democracy to Pathocracy_ The Rise of the Political Psychopath _ HuffPost
