(h/t Prairie Weather)

Too many of our cops and soldiers are at best corrupt, at worst homicidal AND ARE ALMOST NEVER HELD ACCOUNTABLE.  Lt. Calley in Vietnam and the miscreants at Abu Ghraib are only symptoms of a much more widespread callous indifference to human life.

Yes, and the candidate who comes closest to admitting it is Donald Trump. We are supposed to take as gospel that Putin kills opposing journalists. Trump wants proof and says the US government kills plenty of people Iraq, Libya and Syria.

It's funny how populists of the right or left can tell more rudimentary truths about the government than even a Rand Paul or Bernie Sanders.

This by the way is "left" imperialism which is still pushing for maintaining US unipolar hegemony while occasionally hinting, rather feinting otherwise.
