AGREED. My friend and I spent the weekend talking about sexual violence against women, war, sexual violence against women as a "weapon" of war, war again, more war, more sexual violence, and it made me feel incredibly vulnerable, incredibly unsafe, and incredibly angry THAT PEOPLE IN POWER KEEP (RE-)MAKING THE SAME BAD DECISIONS.

Also, "affronts on humanity" my asparagus. Whenever I hear anyone from the US support war, all I hear is the defense industry behind them singing songs about war-sized profits.

I don't know, there has been a major shift in the defense industry in the last 10+ years especially since there are plenty of buyers other than the US and plenty of conflicts around the world. Most of their major profits aren't actually from wars these days as I understand it. The military may be a different thing though because they get more money, more focus, etc.

Having said that, I don't think we should go into Syria, bad, bad, bad decision.
