Hard Truths Department: The U.S. has been, from its inception, steeped in war.

In perusing the following post, imagine how Hillary Clinton, who has never met a war she didn’t support, would figure into U.S. presidential history. In fact, Paul Craig Roberts asks the obvious question:


Would the world survive President Hillary?

Here’s the post that details all “our” wars. Let’s face it:  “our” so-called Military Industrial Complex is nothing new, it’s just been upgraded for the 20th and 21st centuries. 

America Has Been at War 93% of the Time

222 out of 239 years since 1776



To put this in perspective:

* Pick any year since 1776 and there is about a 91% chance that America was involved in some war during that calendar year.

* No U.S. president truly qualifies as a peacetime president.  Instead, all U.S. presidents can technically be considered “war presidents.”

* The U.S. has never gone a decade without war.

* The only time the U.S. went five years without war (1935-40) was during the isolationist period of the Great Depression.
