The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

Thanks for listing the members and their votes. Will post on our website to help hold our elected representatives accountable. How disappointing to see twice as many Republicans as Dems voted against handing the DoD an addition $25 billion. — Environmentalists Against War
