Yeah, but drone strikes and ‘advisor’ deployments to 30+ increased massively. There’s a narrative about Trump winding these down, but in reality he just ended transparency programs instituted by Obama that could be easily reported on. Making our shadow wars more-in-the-shadows by hiding the data doesn’t make them not exist!
I’m definitely concerned about Biden’s administration taking bellicose positions, like not recognizing the government of Venezuela, not negotiating a new Iran Deal, amping up sanctions, but literally all of that is possible because of the international meddling of Trump and Bolton. The only silver lining of the Trump admin was that he was too distracted to pull the trigger on the Venezuela and Iran situations fabricated by Bolton and Mattis.
