Neocons Almost Killed America. Here’s How Patriots Can Fix It

'In the course of losing WWII Germany lost 5.3 of 17.7 million men aged 15-44 years old, or 30% of their male population. This brutality is the reality of winning wars – as the recent US track record of failure shows. The "measured and proportional response" crowd wants a war without war. It's a fantasy that only seems plausible to people who have never experienced war and are insulated from its consequences.'

"Taiwan, and China's claim on it, remains the flashpoint in the ultimate cold war in the final stages of warming. Clever deterrence measures have been offered and rejected. The Pentagon wants to fight by our playbook, but as always in war, the enemy gets a vote. A hot war between China and the USA would see US cities annihilated and a death toll in the tens of millions, at minimum. This apocalyptic carnage can only be averted by looking back through history at what has worked and what hasn't worked in the conveyor belt of failed Washington foreign policy approaches that have dominated the last thirty years. We owe it to our children to get this right but course changes must be made immediately before it is too late."
