Is this Battle of Flynn really just the opening salvo of a war between military intelligence "realists" vs. civilian intelligence neo-cons? Either way, VFP supports peace with all, including Russia. Scoring political scalps by risking a new and unnecessary Cold War benefits no one but the Military-Industrial Complex. Why do Republicans claim to hate socialism yet support the most socialistic endeavor, a huge standing army? Why do Democrats properly speak-ill of fascism yet acquiesce to its most pernicious aspect, a hyperactive military?
Update: From the left, to bolster Mr. Raimondo's view from the right, and to demonstrate national security overreach is where true leftists and rightists should have common ground. The muddled middle is the problem, whether Clinton or Bush.
