Maher on US war monger
His special new rule last night was on how the US just loves wars. Our military industrial complex will use any excuse to start one. Especially now since Afghanistan is winding down "we're dangerously close to not having a war...and that is something we will not tolerate." What, without war we might have to consider poverty, schools and infrastructure. The list of countries the US has invaded is astounding, and that we've been at war throughout most of our history. "At some point you have to look in the mirror and say: 'Maybe it's me.'" By 2020 just the interest payments on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars will be over $1 trillion. Perhaps it's time we started "defining peace as strength." His advice to Hillary, should she run in 2016, is to not support war, because "what good is it being the first woman President if you still have to be a dick."
