The legacy of American Shame being that of interventionist wars and expanding war from two countries to eight? That is over? No? That's weird... he means drone strikes are down? No? That's weird... I would LOVE for the era of American imperialism and world policing to end. Bring the troops and money home.

If the US and allies had NEVER gone over there and destabilized everything we wouldn't be having so much trouble with the extremists.

Obama wasn't hawkish enough for ex CIA henchman Pompeo. He and Bolton are so similar to Clinton, but with a different party label slapped on.
