Yes, I know it’s all about money 24/7, but the future of the world is also being fought out in the streets of our enemies’ countries, and it behooves at least some of our “leaders,” above all those who claim standing to be our next president, to demand action against regimes that kill their own people (as the Valkyries promised they would, and as various pundits claimed Obama had decided) and ours.
Real action. Starting with clear words and continuing with real support for the revolutionaries.
