Send Tom Cotton to the Donbas Frontline
According to war criminal Cotton, refusal to send cruise missiles to genocidal maniacs in Ukraine is weakness.
Senator Tom Cotton has called for a response to the purported Russian downing of an expensive USG war toy over the Black Sea. Forever partisan, he believes Biden’s response demonstrates weakness.
Cotton, a former commissioned second lieutenant in the USG army, did his part to destroy Iraq and immiserate its people. Now he wants to do the same for the people of Russia. He demands Biden send USG warships to the Black Sea. Cotton also demands Zelenskyy and crew be given cruise missiles with sufficient reach to terrorize Russian citizens.
Tom has combat “experience,” the sort of skillset (murder, breaking things) the ultranationalists in Ukraine desperately need. Tom should pack his duffle bag and head to the frontline in Donbas where his “experience” can be useful.
Instead, like his psychopathic warmongering twin, Lindsay Graham, Cotton will remain safe in DC where he can run his mouth and advocate in favor of genocidal neo-nazis on Fox News.
Here’s Graham asking what Reagan would do if Russia had shot down one of the USG’s precious “assets” (a drone gathering targeting information over Crimea).
That’s right, Reagan, the war criminal responsible for 50,000 innocents killed by the “Contras,” more accurately described as “el escuadrón de la muerte.” The International Court of Justice convicted the Reagan administration of violating Nicaragua’s national sovereignty and perpetuating crimes against humanity. Nothing came of it, of course.
Reagan also gave around $4 billion to the brutal military dictatorship in El Salvador, responsible for murdering over 75,000 people. But the buck didn’t stop there. His administration also supported the sadistic dictatorship of Efrain Rios Montt, who oversaw the slaughter of 200,000 Guatemalans. Montt, at least, was convicted of genocide and crimes against humanity.
Gen. Rios Montt, “an avowed fundamentalist Christian… immediately impressed Washington. Reagan hailed Rios Montt as ‘a man of great personal integrity,’” writes Robert Parry.
Few remember Reagan ordering the warship New Jersey to fire its 16-inch guns at “hostile” Druze villages in Lebanon, or his invasion of Grenada. Reagan invited the fundamentalist Afghan Mujahideen to DC and hailed them as “freedom fighters” (the Mujahideen would later morph into the Taliban and al-Qaeda, custom-made enemies).
And let’s not forget Reagan’s murder of Moammar Gadaffi’s adopted baby daughter, Hana Gaddafi, during an attack on Libya instigated by Israel (see “By Way of Deception: The Making of a Mossad officer,” Victor Ostrovsky, p. 114).
Reagan's viciousness and crimes in Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East serve as an inspiration for Tom Cotton, Lindsay Graham, and no shortage of other uniparty warmongers.
Biden will not send cruise missiles to the neo-nazis in Ukraine. He is committed to the destruction of Russia, but not at the cost of beginning a war that will end life on planet Earth.
For the combat-warped psychopath Tom Cotton, a reluctance to bomb Russian cities, kill innocent Russian civilians, and usher in the final war is nothing less than weakness.
Apparently, voters in Arkansas agree.
Yes, yes and yes. Lindsey Graham should also go.
Living in Canada, we have our share political freaks but nothing compares to the many absolute certfiable psychopaths that infest the U.S. political system.
