False Equivalency in Reporting

I don't think Ali is on the ticket but the guy who was responsible for having 100,000 troops STILL in Afghanistan(as of June) is there.

Sadly, the Overton window has shifted to the point where if you don't START a new undeclared war then you are considered the pacifist. No question it's a problem...not really addressed in the current post.

The "other" guy running in 2008 seemed a little trigger happy and might have started two or three new wars by now.

The "other" guy in the current race has been disturbingly vague about his intentions regarding Afghanistan and other potential theaters of war, but he is surrounding himself with advisers hell-bent on warmongering.
