Imagine Hitler using a Democrat presidential candidate as his spokesperson. Same thing.
US Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has condemned President Donald Trump for ordering the assassination of Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani, warning that the killing will destabilize the region and puts the US on the path to another war.
Perhaps the most forceful condemnation came from Sanders, an independent senator from Vermont who caucuses with Democrats.
“When I voted against the war in Iraq in 2002, I feared it would lead to greater destabilization of the region,” Sanders tweeted on Thursday. ‘That fear unfortunately turned out to be true.”
“The US has lost approximately 4,500 brave troops, tens of thousands have been wounded, and we’ve spent trillions [in Iraq],” Sanders added.
“Trump’s dangerous escalation brings us closer to another disastrous war in the Middle East that could cost countless lives and trillions more dollars. Trump promised to end endless wars, but this action puts us on the path to another one.”
