Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Trump Iran Attack: “Now is the moment to decide if you are pro-peace

Earlier this afternoon, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez condemned Donald Trump’s attack on Iranian General Qassem Soleimaniin Baghdad, because the attack on Suleimani was undertaken without the necessary congressional approval and oversight.

But Alexandria Ocasio Cortez made other key points, which is that powerful forces will tell you there is no alternative but conflict with Iran, when the reality is that peace is possible. She also noted–like Bernie Sanders has done–that “War is a class conflict, too. The rich and powerful who open war escape the consequences of their decisions. It’s not their children sent into the jaws of violence.”

It’s good to see AOC take a stand against Trump and for peace.

Bernie Sanders And Ro Khanna Introduce Bill to Block Trump War on Iran

In light of Donald Trump’s attack on Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, Bernie Sanders and Ro Khanna have proposed legislation that would block funding for any offensive military force in or against Iran without prior congressional authorization. This is because many felt Trump’s unilateral attack on Iran general Soleimani
was unconstitutional, and as such, he needs to be reined in by congress.

It’s working-class kids who will have to fight and die in a disastrous new Middle East conflict—not the children of billionaires“.

FEARS are growing in the Democratic Party establishment that Bernie Sanders could become their presidential nominee, as party grandees started to round on the Vermont senator: here.

Bernie Sanders continues to warn of Trump-Iran war escalation. John Iadarola and Brett Erlich break it down on The Damage Report.

This 3 January 2020 video about Canada says about itself:

Earlier today, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh and NDP MP Charlie Angus critiqued Donald Trump’s attack on Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad as an act of aggression against Iran, and expressed a desire to take an approach against further conflict. Justin Trudeau has yet to speak, but Foreign Affairs Minister François-Philippe Champagne took the same hedge-betting approach that Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren took, which was to call Suleimani a bad guy, critique the Quds Force, and worry about procedure.

But Singh and Angus took a clear line like Bernie Sanders: This is a foolish move that is an act of aggression on Iran, and will harm Americans and Iranians. Jagmeet Singh is the leader Canada needs on this issue.

  1. ALL OUT AGAINST ANOTHER US WAR!

    Antiwar and social justice groups across the US are participating in demonstrations

    SATURDAY, January 4

    Popular Resistance, Code Pink, UNAC, Answer, International Action Center, Veterans For Peace, Voices for Peace and many others are announcing Emergency Saturday actions.

    The US assassination in Iraq of a top Iranian general and a top Iraqi Population Mobilization leader is an act of war

    We say No War! Bring ALL the Troops Home!

    End the Wars! End the Sanctions!

    The United States committed an act of war and a war cirme by assassinating Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force.

    One hundred Marines from Kuwait; 750 members of the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division; and soon 4,000 additional US troops are all being mobilized to reinforce the outrageous US occupation of Iraq and possibly plunge the region deeper into war.

    Meanwhile New York’s liberal mayor is supporting Trump’s war plans with an increased hyper-militarization of our streets and subways.

    Every sector of New York has rejected the racism and violence of increased police presence in the subways and this Saturday will be rejecting the racism and violence of Washington’s revvived war against the people of Iraq.

    The death of General Soleimani was reportedly ordered by President Trump and carried out by the Pentagon. The US tried to justify its actions as necessary to protect US personnel, but in reality, this act blatantly violates international law and Iraqi sovereignty. The US does not have the authority to murder a general of a country we are not at war with and in a third country that did not support the action.

    Iran has declared that it will retaliate after a three-day period of mourning. Iran just concluded joint military exercises with Russia and China. This situation could easily escalate to a regional if not a global war.

    We must act swiftly to say:

    “No war on Iran. US out of Iraq and the Middle East.”

    Emergency actions are being organized nationwide on
    Saturday, January 4.

  2. As you saw in last night’s breaking news, tensions between the United States and Iran have reached their most dangerous point yet in the Trump Presidency.

    The death of Iranian Special Forces General Qassem Soleimani has set us on the path to a war with Iran — one that the United States Congress has NOT given the President authorization to declare. What happened last night is the latest result of President Trump’s erratic foreign policy.

    Sign the petition to demand Congress act immediately to stop war with Iran:

    We need to continue our work to elevate the voices of our 700,000+ members to prevent a devastating war with Iran.

    President Trump ran for office on a promise to put an end to the Forever Wars. But his decision to withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal and subsequently escalate tensions with Iran has brought us to the brink of a new and devastating neoconservative conflict.

    This not only greatly escalates things with Iran and puts us closer to war — it complicates our relationship with the Iraqis, who are allied with Iran, and imperils our fight against ISIS.

    In short, Donald Trump just made things worse for U.S. security and troops.

    We need to act now to send a message to Donald Trump: This act was reckless and endangers all U.S. forces. Click here to sign our petition and demand Congress act now to stop war with Iran:

    ADD MY NAME

    Help us take action to stop another multibillion-dollar war that results in countless dead American troops while hurting U.S. security.

    Your support is critical right now. Thanks for signing our petition.

  8. For the second straight day, Donald Trump and his campaign sent out a press release attacking Bernie Sanders.

    TRUMP PENCE 2020: Keep America Great! DANGEROUS: Bernie Sanders Can’t Be Trusted To Defend American Lives

    The reason they do it is clear: they know Bernie will beat Trump in a general election.

    And he’s right. We will. Badly. So let’s get there:

    Make a $2.70 contribution to our campaign today and we’re going to win this primary and beat Donald Trump, badly, in the general election.

    We are dangerous, but not in the way Trump thinks.

    We are dangerous to the fossil fuel companies who have prioritized their short-term profits over a habitable planet for future generations.

    We are dangerous to the drug and insurance companies getting rich by denying care and jacking up drug prices.

    And we are dangerous to his re-election chances, as well. Because ours is the campaign that generates the kind of grassroots enthusiasm it will take to beat Trump.

    But all of us have a role to play in getting there, and Bernie needs your help today:

    Can Bernie count on you to make a $2.70 contribution to our campaign today to help us win this primary, beat Trump, and transform our country?

    Thanks for chipping in. We have a great chance to win this thing, and if you keep fighting… we will.

    All my best,
