Now he’s parading through the halls of Congress as an Israeli militant seated on the Foreign Affairs Committee. https://t.co/Bmb63DXM5M

Mark my words: When Israel moves into Gaza, people will call for Israel to exercise “restraint.”— Nikki Haley (@NikkiHaley) October 13, 2023
Hamas showed NO restraint when it slaughtered innocent Israelis.
Hamas is evil & must be eradicated. We must stand with Israel—not just when it is hit, but also when it hits back. pic.twitter.com/T9t6dC57PN
Last week, it seemed like after two years of funding the war in Ukraine that the GOP was on the cusp of turning the corner. Public opinion had shifted against the war in Ukraine. Political support was drying up in Congress. Kevin McCarthy lost his job as Speaker of the House.
Today, it is like watching a dog return to its own vomit. The corpse of the counter-jihad movement has risen from the dead. Neocons are demanding a war with Iran. Hysterical Christian Zionists and Ben Shapiro want to “glass Gaza.” FOX News is worse than I remember it being in 2003. Kevin McCarthy and Marsha Blackburn are even throwing around the term “New Axis of Evil.” We face the ugly prospect of Americans dying in yet another futile Middle Eastern war to “Stand With Israel.”
Anyway, it is depressing. I also wouldn’t support it in a million years. All we do is relentlessly meddle in these countries whether it is Ukraine or Iraq or Syria or Israel and Palestine. Every single time without fail we choose NOT to exit and focus on our own domestic problems. We elect people who promise to get us out of these wars only to watch them plunge us into the next one.
It is maddening. I am also so tired of it.
