Mike Pompeo should not be confirmed as Secretary of State. Pompeo is an advocate for military intervention in North Korea and the destruction of the Iran nuclear deal. The combination of Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State and John Bolton as National Security Advisor is a recipe for disaster. A vote for Pompeo into a vote for war. Tell Senator Heidi Heitkamp not to break with the Democratic party and be the deciding vote that confirms war-hawk as the next US Secretary of State.

    An Anti-War Rant (quote from poem)

    My fingers feel my blood
    and it fills me full of dread.
    I am losing so much now
    that soon i will be dead

    tour of dutys over.

    I did my country proud.
    Now they send me home
    covered in a shroud.

    This small town boys a hero.
    Around my toe a tag.
    my only badge of honour
    inside this body bag.

    I"d been here twenty weeks,
    a war had to be fought.
    But the saddest part of all
    is i did not fire a shot.

    You have to serve your country,
    but let us tell the truth.
    Nothing justifies

    So let"s salute them all.
    For nothings ever won,
    and let us not forget
    the Mothers of these sons.

    But the saddest point of all
    and the burden we all share.
    Is that everybody knows
    that Governments just don"t care

    I am an Anti War Creature (quote-poem)

    War is no more
    Like before
    War is all that politicians adore
    War is hate, blood and death we abhor
    War is erasing earth’s core
    War is closing life’s door
    War kills innocence that you ignore
    War is widening the gap between the four
    The East, the West, the South and the North
    War will just devour
    Our entire civilization store
    You, warriors, what do-you explore?
    Your humanity and manhood I implore
    You are throwing seas offshore
    War murdered children then tore
    Their parents under their eyes on the floor
    Would you, please, tell me what’s the score?

    As a former North Dakotan, I can’t imagine why you have Democrat after your name by the way you continue to vite with republicans and now want to confirm this known torturer and war hawk.
    If you are a Democrat, act like one!

    I wrote to my Senators, pleadingly. I hope you all take the time, no matter who they are.

    I’m a USMC Viet Nam vet. I came to understand that it was, for them, about nationalism, not communism. I lost buddies there and as a result of their service later. The young men and ne to legitimate needs.omen who go to war are, for the most part, honorable. But throughout our history, drums have been beaten for one slogan or another to go to war. There have been possibly only two wars that meant anything, IMO, the Revolutionary and WWII. People talk ignorantly of our young men and women fighting for our "freedom.? None of these wars, other than the two mentioned, have had any effect on our freedom. Their effect has been for colonialism and profit. Eisenhower warned about the military/industrial complex. We can add to that the “financial” sector and, of course, the “political” has always been a partner of the others. In every generation, there have been warmongers. They have cost us hundreds of thousands of the lives of our children and many trillions of dollars which could have gone to legitimate needs. And not least, we have cost the lives of millions of people around the world, leaving them devastated at the losses. This, of course, has created many “enemies” where there were none before. Terrorism is with us because we have opened Pandora’s box far too often with a large measure of arrogance. We need to learn to be “peace makers” instead of trying to be a pseudo-peace enforcer.

    A good Secretary of State is supposed to advocate for military intervention as a * last * resort. But Mike Pompeo is a warhawk and a hothead just like his fellow warhawks and hotheads Mr. Trump and new (non-Senate confirmed) National Security Advisor John Bolton and will support military intervention as the first choice to resolve international crises. Put those hotheaded bozos all together in the same room, and they will come up with some lame excuses (read: Big Lies) to tell to the American people and trick the US into starting stupid, unwinnable, indefinite wars with North Korea, Iran, and/or Syria. And as a bad omen for things to come, John Bolton is already purging the moderates from the National Security Council and restocking it with yes-men and ideologues who will support his narrow-minded, militaristic worldview:

    Bottom line: Please contact your Senators and tell them to reject Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State because he will make a terrible Secretary of State for the reasons that I’ve stated earlier. A vote for Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State will be a vote for war (like the stupid [and disastrous] War in Iraq that John Bolton lied the US into supporting during the Bush administration).
