Friday News Dump...WSJ reporting US Military confirms details of drone attack last month

10 Afghan civilians killed, including 7 children and the target escaped.

Unfortunately, Milley called it a "righteous strike" last month.

4. Very sad.

 

Unfortunately, I had a feeling this was the case as soon as the NYT was on it.

Funny to see the pretzels some are twisting into here to avoid the ugly truth.

6. War is truly ugly.

I've spent the last 50 years studying history and wars in general...

And the closer we get to today, the fewer reasons I see for war.

I mean, it's not the same as when Charles, King of the Franks defeated the Umayyad Caliphate at the Battle of Tours in 732 to prevent the Muslim takeover of Europe or WW2...

War may have been necessary at one time but in our current interconnected world... I can't think of much of a reason for war today.

7. Well, I agree.

 

WW1 was called the war to end all wars for a reason.

We could go into the silliness of HenryVIII and his ridiculous wars against France…

So ironic.
