Since Mr. Trump took office, his administration has advanced some arms deals for coalition countries, while approving the resumption of sales of precision-guided munitions to Saudi Arabia

It's not about protecting people or promoting democracy - it's all about keeping the infinitely greedy war machine fed.

Please sign this petition against more military spending. I know that I seem to promote this all over Care2, but it needs a lot more support, and no matter how many times I call attention to it, signatures seem to be very hard to garner.

Sorry - I can't do much more, Freya - signed it when you posted it, & shared it.
I hope some new "faces" well see this message here, in this context, & will sign it ...

Freya's petition YOU TOOK ACTION ON FEBRUARY 4, 2017 I agree Evelyn, wish new faces would move to stories they might not otherwise view.

Until the American people wake up to realize that they live in an Empire and this is what Empire does, build up it's military at the expense of everyone and everything else, hollows out it's own insides, and moves to a new battlefield, no end in sight.

I placed on an article along a similar vein if anyone wants to view it Escalation is Still on The Table With Syria

So far under the Trump Administration we have been great at killing civilians, Yemen and Mosul. the United States wonders why it has enemies, it creates them all the time.

I find it staggering that this petition has as FEW signatures as it does. . . surely people don't WANT more war. . .?
