Bernie Sanders, my favorite Senator, says what I’ve been thinking, but didn’t know how to put into words.

“We are here today because of the disastrous blunder of the Bush-Cheney era, which got us into this war in Iraq in the first place, which then developed the can of worms that we’re trying to deal with right now.”
Mr. Sanders expressed his concern about the possibility of getting dragged into “perpetual warfare.”
“We have been at war for 12 years; we have spent trillions of dollars. I’m chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. We have 500,000 men and women who have come home with PTSD and TBI [traumatic brain injuries]. What I do not want, and what I fear very much, is the United States getting sucked into a quagmire and being involved in perpetual warfare year after year after year. That is my fear,” he said.”
