US Is Bombing Seven Countries

The only candidate consistently addressing the real issues of this campaign cycle appears to be Dr. Jill Stein:

Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential nominee, charged the major-party hopefuls with failing to tell Americans how they’d tackle challenges including foreign conflicts.

Stein, speaking at Huston-Tillotson University in Austin, said of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump a couple of nights before the last 2016 presidential debate: "They are very busy talking about grabbing women’s genitalia so that they don’t have to reveal that they cannot tell you what are we going to do about this crashing economy, what are we going to do about the climate that is barreling down on us, this catastrophe of the climate."

Stein drew our curiosity when she went on: "They don’t have a solution to the expanding wars except more wars. We are already bombing seven countries and now we do appear to be engaging in this war crime in Yemen where we have been partnering with the Saudis in this war crime for the past year. They do not want to talk about that."

Saudi Arabia, a U.S. ally, has sided with Yemen’s government against Houthi rebels in a continuing war.

For this fact check, we wondered if the U.S. is bombing seven countries.

That at least has been so: In September 2014, PunditFact rated True a bombed-countries claim by Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker. Lizza referred to President George W. Bush and his successor, Barack Obama, in a tweet that said: "Countries bombed: Obama 7, Bush 4."

At the time, the U.S. on Obama’s watch had bombed Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria.

You can read the rest @

Since all seven are MUSLIM countries, it appears that women voters in the US are putting them in the Trump column - as misogynist morons who must be stopped at any cost, even if it means starving and bombing women and children.

Sounds bizarre to me.

By the way, these bombings amount to WAR. Where are the Congressional declarations of war on these nations?

We don't need any, you say? Will Hillary need a declaration of war to attack Russia, or will she just push the button?
