    Probably for the first time ever, I agree with the Texas Progressive Alliance…..no new wars. I liked Tulsi’s commitment last night to end the war in Afghanistan. Should have done that 18 years ago. Forget about nation building, just stick to shock and awe, then leave, with the promise to do even worse if we have to go back.

    Having said that, I agree with Trump’s strategy over the drone…..he went after the actual Iranian leaders and messed with their money with the new sanctions. He hit them in the wallet, which has probably left the ‘supreme leader’ apoplectic. I also support Ted Cruz’ plan to collect for the drone’s cost by taking the cost from the impounded Iranian funds that Obama, for some reason, did NOT give them.
