It was quite remarkable how the same people who had protested against Bush’s illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan became passionate supporters of Obama’s efforts to liberate those places along with Libya and Syria from tyranny. It’s bizarre how the same people (again) are now decrying Trump’s war in Syria and his failure to withdraw US troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.
And the silence of the anti war brigade over US support for Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen, (now in its fourth year so it spans two administrations.

Perhaps people will wake up to the fact that these wars are not Bush’s, Obama’s or Trumps, Cameron’s or Blair’s wars but The Deep State’s wars.
