  • Us military only exists to steal oil from poor countries

    • Venezuela has more oil than Saudi Arabia. Why hasn’t the US military invaded a socialist dictatorship in its own hemisphere? Why hasn’t the US-if oil is the only reason for the US military to exist-invoked the Monroe Doctrine as it always has to squash conflicts on this side of the word as peacekeepers, there’s historical precedence to do this. Why are poor countries poor? Why is it that an immensely valuable commodity doesn’t make them rich as it does us? You should expect better of yourself and your opinions.

  • How about you raise awareness on the 'forever wars' and the ludicrous spending on these 'wars' that end up wasting lives on each side for an ulterior motive?

    • @Elliott Spence I know I’m saying people would rather virtue signal like “oh wow he is serving his country and protecting our freedoms” but in reality we are just killing innocent people because we don’t like their government and want their resources

    • @Chris Lee I work for a news publication. Like you, I'm using an alias, but my reasons are so the news outlet I work for, doesn't get shadow-banned. No virtue signalling here, when what I do for a living is actually investigate and report on the military industrial complex and have done so for over 10 years.

    • Bellator mostly sucks.. they have such afwul matchmaking.. I am a die hard MMA fan and I watch every UFC and bellator and other cards. But lately Bellator has just been making bad fights, their prelims are unwatchable and only few fights are good. Also the camerawork sucks.. I wish they were better and it's in everybody best interest to have many promotions but they need to hire some people to get their promotion in order and cut some fighters who aren't good... and stop trying to be "as good as UFC" because they are not. and Big John and the other guy need to stop shitting on the UFC and Dana in their videos, it doesn't help them, as far as I'm concerned it just puts people who love the UFC like me off.. Also! Stop making too old fighters fight in some money grabbing fights.
