The Mindset of a Conservative Warmonger

I just read this in the letter to the editor section in a conservative magazine (a magazine that does not share this opinion):

“Get the FBI, CIA, and Pentagon together, get out of the way, and let them wipe out the enemy. Let the law of diminishing returns destroy ISIS. Pretend we’re really at war, like when we were fighting the Nazis in Europe—carpetbomb and firebomb enemy strongholds. If innocent people are killed, at least they won’t be our innocent people. The choice is war over there or war right here.”

This is why Republican warmongers like Lindsey Graham keep getting elected to office.
