Bernie Sanders on US wars based on lies


This 21 June 2019 video is called Bernie [Sanders] Brings Up History Of Pro-War Lies On MSNBC.

Thursday night’s confused and profoundly dangerous events surrounding the Trump administration’s ordering and then cancelling US air strikes against Iran have exposed how close the world is to a catastrophic new war that could ultimately threaten the entire planet: here.

On Thursday evening, the United States military was ten minutes away from launching a series of air and missile strikes on Iran that risked sparking a massive new war leading to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people: here.

  2. Just today we learned that the United States came very close to striking targets inside Iran in response to the downing of a U.S. drone in the Persian Gulf.

    Last week the White House announced thousands of additional troops would be sent to the Middle East in response to the alleged Iranian attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

    Last month, the New York Times reported that the Pentagon had presented a plan to the White House that envisions sending as many as 120,000 troops to the region to fight Iran.

    Mark my words. A war in Iran would make the Iraq war look like a walk in the park. It would be an unmitigated disaster.

    If the United States were to attack Iran, Iran could respond with attacks on U.S. troops and on countries around the region. It would lead to the further destabilization of that region in a way that is unimaginable and would result in wars that would go on year after year and likely cost trillions of dollars.

    Taking us into a war without Congressional authorization would be unconstitutional and illegal. The United States Congress must do everything it can to prevent this war. The Constitution is very clear: It is Congress, not the president, who decides when we go to war.

    And it is long past time for my colleagues in Congress to reassert that authority.

    Please add your name if you agree:

    Sign my petition saying that Congress must assert its constitutional authority and stop Trump from going to war with Iran without Congressional approval.

    Sixteen years ago, the United States committed one of the worst foreign policy blunders in the history of our country by attacking Iraq. That war was sold to the American people based on a series of lies about weapons of mass destruction. One of the leading advocates for that war was John Bolton, who served as a member of the Bush administration, and is now Trump’s national security adviser. Incredibly, even today, Bolton is one of the few remaining people in the world who continues to believe that the Iraq war was a good idea.

    That war led to the deaths of more than 4,400 American troops, with tens of thousands of American soldiers wounded, many severely, and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians killed. It unleashed a wave of radicalism and destabilization across the region that we will be dealing with for many years to come. It was the biggest foreign policy disaster in American history.

    Voices of dissent went unheeded in the lead-up to the Iraq war. They must be heeded now.

    We also need the people themselves to speak up and make themselves heard. Earlier this year, we made history in Congress by passing, for the first time in forty years, a War Powers Resolution to withdraw the United States from an illegal and unauthorized war in Yemen.

    We did this with the strong support of a trans-partisan grassroots coalition, with progressives and conservatives working together to bring sanity to our foreign policy. We need those same voices to make clear to the Congress and to the reflexively hawkish, interventionist foreign policy establishment here in Washington that we will not accept another American war in the Middle East.

    If you agree that we must not allow Trump to go to war with Iran on his own, please add your name to my petition:

    Sign my petition: tell Congress to pass legislation that would prohibit military action against Iran without Congressional approval.

    When we are in the White House, we will pursue a course that resolves conflicts peacefully, not through endless war.

    In solidarity,

    Bernie Sanders
    We cannot allow Donald Trump to decide to start a war with Iran when he feels like it.

    Sign my petition: tell Congress to pass legislation that would prohibit military action against Iran without Congressional approval.

  5. The billionaire class and financial establishment of this country have made it clear: they hate Bernie Sanders. That’s how you know we’re on the right track. Make a contribution to our campaign to help us fight back.

    CONTRIBUTE

    Linda –

    Look at this crew:

    Kenneth Langone, a man worth $3.7 billion dollars yet pays his workers so little many rely on food stamps, Medicaid, and public housing says, “I saw Bernie Sanders and the kids around him.” I thought: “This is the antichrist.”
    Or the former CEO of Verizon, Lowell McAdam, who made almost $20 million a year while fighting to take away health care from his employees and thinks Bernie’s views on issues like Medicare for all are “in a word, contemptible.”
    Billionaire political mega-donor Haim Saban who says, “We love all 23 candidates… minus one. I profoundly dislike Bernie Sanders.”
    Or Lloyd Blankfein, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, who says our campaign “has the potential to be a dangerous moment.”

    We are dangerous!?!?!? Lloyd Blankfein’s company almost completely destroyed the WORLD economy and wiped out generations of wealth, and we are dangerous?

    Like FDR says, Bernie welcomes their contempt. We wear it like a badge of honor. But these people are enormously powerful, and we need your help to fight back:

    Make a $2.70 contribution to our campaign and we are going to win this primary, beat Donald Trump, and transform this country — whether the billionaire class likes it or not.

    The truth is, Bernie does not represent large corporations and he does not want their money. He proved in 2016 you can run for president without begging rich people for money and in this campaign we have more donations than anyone else in the race.

    But we can’t stop now. Because the rich folks above will do and spend whatever it takes to beat us.

    In solidarity,
