The new high school diploma

Community college should be free and anyone who tries to argue the contrary needs to be informed of the reasoning behind it.

Drone strikes are expensive and ineffective

Killing and injuring the people you are trying to protect is the definition of failure and the U.S. drone strikes that have led to civilians casualties in Syria and Iraq is just that.

This makes it one of the worst civilian casualty counts in the war against ISIS. In 2016, former...
