Senator Marco Rubio, who has been seen on video taking pills, stands before posters of dead children to try to sell another Middle Eastern war to Americans.
While the decisions have already been made, Senator Rubio has been chosen for several features such as been telegenic, non-white, well spoken, nominally conservative, and pliable.
Will the American public believe in another war based on nearly the same tales told in the lead up to Iraq II? Are 10 children justification for killing the hundreds of thousands it will take for a regime change. What about the trillions of dollars it will cost Americans? What about the American children who will die as soldiers 6000 miles away for a war that does not service America's interests? Will Americans trust intelligence services that have total disregard for American law and the rights of its citizens? Will Americans let the neo-cons back into power once again?
Will foreign policy continue to be decided by who has the most graphic pictures of murdered children?
