    How can we next move the needle to use war to make money and kill more brown people?

    Who can we invade?
    I'd say Iran is the obvious one or something where it requires shooting some 10 million dollar missile at.

    Maybe we can isolate part of afghanistan and build one of those defense domes like in Israel all decked out with bad ass smart bombs that ain't cheap.

    Nothing. There's a pretty strong bipartisan preference against further foreign military interventions among actual voters (you wouldn't know it from the NYT editorial pages that are dominated by the war-happy CFR elites) so I would not be surprised if things focus more on our existing allies in Asia and Europe rather than any new wars. Even Trump and Biden generally agreed on this.

    I think Biden's resistance of the CFR warhawk/"blob" class, where 3 previous presidents failed, is a significant break and if he gets reelected, their power will be permanently diluted.

    None, shrink the military and build up the infrastructure, that is what will happen if the Dems remain in charge.

    The Repbulicans have BUTT ****ED this country into being broke and let things slide...while their butt buddies paid them off with NRA monies, or Koch Money...GREED OVER PEOPLE must die for this country to heal.

    Would be nice to see trillions invested on our own soil for the next 20 years to rebuild antiquated areas of the U.S. that have been left behind. Probably could even get bipartisan support for that.

    We can produce the first CGI/TV only war and invade Westeros or Oz or Narnia. Arms manufacturers can continue to drain away all our wealth but with much less overhead because the weapons don't have to actually work and nobody has to die except a bunch of CGI talking animals.

    Plus I'd love to see people get all worked up over some media driven left vs right internet fight over the plight of the displaced flying monkeys, or whether its really torture if you waterboard a talking lion, or whatever.

    Afghanistan wasn't challenging and complex enough... LETS "FREE" TIBET!! (with our military, drone strikes, and impeccable record of nation building of course).

    The other end of the spectrum, though, is something like Reagan invading Grenada, where the whole thing is over in a couple of hours. Nobody wants that. As soon as you are ready to start milking it, its already over.

    Somewhere tropical, like in Central America or Central Africa works great because you can really lean into the bad guys disapearing into the jungle, and how even though nobody can see them, theres a horrible horde of terrorists just waiting for us to put our guard down.

    Nigeria or The Congo or one of those costal African places would be ideal - you can work in the Islamic militant angle and spend 30 years defoliating the jungle with JDAMs.
