I hope they succeed. Hope they prevent future conscription too. Even better if potential recruits learnt that war except for actual defence is immoral and unethical.

Congress is not always right.

Ms Omar is a woman to respect - for her bravery, clarity and ethical stance in front of one of the most terrifying men in America.

"Under the U.S. Constitution, Congress has to approve foreign military action."

Tell that to the Yugoslavs, Syrians, latest Libyan war victims, Filipinos (1900), Grenadians, and numerous other victims of direct US Imperialism. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Declaration_of_war_...

Then there are the secret wars using proxies, special forces and mercenaries. South America could educate the above writers about those. Conclusion: It's pointless being naive.

The article above is titled "What the Press Hides From You About Venezuela". It purports to be a criticism of the media for not paying more attention to the UNHCR report.

And the first two paragraphs of the report he shows are 22 and 23 that strongly criticise the Maduro government.

That's a propaganda attack.

I forgot to mention one other reason for long unwinnable wars - to sow terror in the rest of the world.

Why did they drop 2 atomic bombs on Japan - it wasn't to win the war.

Why did they flatten North Korea and much of the South until nothing was standing; and drop more napalm and phosphorus bombs that the entire WW2 and Vietnam. It wasn't just to defeat the Koreans.

Why did they show B52s dropping huge bombs on Vietnam every night on the news. It wasn't just to terrorise the Vietnamese and later the Serbians.

Why did they? It was to terrorise the world.

Everybody knows about it. Mexico is the standout country for fighting the CIA/ drug connection.

Interestingly America doesn't seem to mind long drawn out wars it doesn't win outright. The longer the war, the more money the Military industrial complex makes and controls, the more Americans keep feeling threatened by bogeymen called socialists and communists (note, they are never fascists or nazis), and the more young unemployed and convicted Americans get used as cannon fodder. As Kennedy said,"We either had a war in Vietnam or we have a revolution at home."

The evil empire did invade Syria. The just used proxies in their videos with numerous names and acronyms like Isis and the appallingly misnamed Free Syrian Army.
