Tom Streithorst joins Scott to talk about his latest article, “War Doesn’t Make Sense Anymore,” in which he outlines his theory of America’s modern wars: We no longer care about winning wars at all, we just do it to make money. Of course, it’s only the political class and the military industrial complex who make any money, never mind the innocent foreigners—and Americans—we kill along the way.
Discussed on the show:
- “War Doesn’t Make Sense Anymore” (The American Conservative)
- Fool’s Errand
- Slant drilling
- Ali al-Sistani
- Badr Brigade
