But that's impossible - how can we afford to fix poverty when we have to spend enormous amounts of money on whiz bang jetfighters and new laser guns?? 60% of the discretionary budget spent on the military is entirely reasonable while our education and infrastructure continues to decline. »
Your first point is true whether or not he should have been relieved of duty.
The photos released didn't make Tsarnaev look like a scary terrorist, he looked like a kid who was almost dead, with a sniper's red-dot laser trained on his head. How were those pictures supposed to counter whatever narrative Sgt. Murphy… »

You clearly are just… »
One man against the diplomatic coercion of the most powerful state on Earth. What do you expect? This isn't a movie. »
I don't think that Biden simply calls national leaders, whispers sweet nothings into their ears, and out comes a change in policy. The threat is implicit through the amount of trade Ecuador relies on from the US. »
First off, it's pretty condescending to assume age or naivety.
