With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

PANETTA TALKS TOUGH TO PAKISTAN


Secretary of Endless War Leon Panetta grits his teeth and threatens Pakistan.  What's next?  A full-blown U.S. invasion and occupation of Pakistan?

Keep looking at the map and the proposed pipeline routes in Central Asia.

The more enemies the U.S. makes in the region, the longer the Pentagon can make the case that they have to stay to bring "peace and stability".

I had a call early this morning from a radio station in South Africa that wanted to do an interview with me about U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan.  They called back around noon and we talked for 15 minutes.  They asked what the American people knew and thought about the Pentagon and CIA drone operations.  Sadly I had to report to them that recent polls show that high percentages of U.S. citizens support Obama's drone attacks because they see them as a way to "save American soldiers lives" in the war zone. 

In fact a vast majority of "liberal Democrats" support these drone strikes because their party holds the White House.  I can guarantee that if George W. Bush was still president, or if it was Mitt Romney in the White House, these liberals would be in the streets protesting drone attacks.  Hypocrisy to the max!
