The Democrats Are Just As Crazy and Just as Warmongery as Republicans 1

By Ted Rall


Skewed NewsSenator Ted Cruz, by most measures the second most popular presidential candidate among Republican primary voters after Donald Trump, is catching flak for his call to carpet-bomb ISIS.

Granted, Cruz’s understanding of warfare isn’t sophisticated. Called out on the fact that Vietnam-style carpet-bombing of the Islamic State’s de facto capital of Raqqa, Syria would kill a lot more noncombatant civilians than wild-eyed jihadis, Cruz tried to recast carpet-bombing — which is, by definition, indiscriminate — as precise. “You would carpet-bomb where ISIS is, not a city, but the location of the troops,” he said. “You use air power directed — and you have embedded special forces to direction the air power. But the object isn’t to level a city. The object is to kill the ISIS terrorists.”

Granted: this man is an idiot.
