    Opposes endless war supported by Clinton, Rubio and Cruz

    The neocons are furious with Republican frontrunner Donald Trump. He refuses to call for military interventionism like all the other Republican candidates (with the exception of Rand Paul, who is now out of the race) and says Iraq and Libya are a mess because of American foreign policy.

    There is little difference between the parties on foreign policy. Hillary Clinton is as belligerent or more so than her Republican rivals. As Secretary of State she oversaw the destruction of Libya and the slaughter of 100,000 Libyans. She chortled on national television about the brutal murder of Muammar Gaddafi, a man who was not a threat to the United States.

    Both Cruz and Rubio are interventionists. In September Ted Cruz advocated killing Ali Khamenei, the ayatollah of Iran. Cruz likes to portray himself as a moderate on interventionism, and yet his team includes the cofounder of the Chertoff Group and a former CIA director connected to the now largely defunct Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a think tank with an agenda formulated by top neocons William Kristol and Robert Kagan. Ted’s foreign policy team also includes Elliot Abrams, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and the son-in-law of Norman Podhoretz, a trailblazing neoconservative ideologue.

    Marco Rubio is the darling of the neocon clique.

    This article claims that Trump's foreign policy is non-interventionist but I've never heard him publicly take that position in the debates, in print or on his TV ads. This is the guy who called for "carpet bombing" to eradicate ISIS. Do you have any evidence to back up this claim? I'd like to see it.

    Yeah 30 years worth of evidence. You probably missed because you were to busy memorizing Media Matters talking points to hear it.

    Here's a small sampling of other articles that point out Trump's anti interventionist foreign policy.

    Why do you think the PTB hate Trump so much? He threatens their endless profits from endless wars and military interventions.

    Has Trump ever demonstrated an interest in furthering anybody other than himself? Yes, he's said a lot of things most of which he later refuted. He doesn't care about America and certainly not the 99%. He represents perfectly Gorgon Gecko in Wall Street saying "Greed is good./"

    Did he or did not he say that he would carpet bomb ISIS into submission?
