Election 2016

Making War Still Costs More Than Money

esquire.comCLEVELAND, OHIO—There is still news going on out in the world beyond the concrete barriers and the tall black fences of the security perimeter. The one thing on which both parties agree is that the involvement of the United States in making war in places like Syria has to continue until the threat of Daesh is removed forever from the dreams of our children.

Here, the Republicans are just a little more bloodthirsty about it, and they like to make jokes about reading people their Miranda rights rather than making war on them and killing them dead. But there’s no reason to expect that the Democratic ticket will be changing course very radically, either. The U.S.A. is in this to win it.
