BTW, it’s not just Crazy Bernie capitalizing on this massive political blunder:
NO WAR WITH IRAN! This would be an unmitigated disaster. We must stop Trump and his national security advisor, John Bolton—someone who likes endless wars. https://t.co/a90UTlj8OU— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) May 14, 2019
Thank you, @senwarren, for signing on as a co-sponsor of my bipartisan bill to halt the Trump administration’s march to war with Iran.— Tom Udall (@SenatorTomUdall) May 14, 2019
We can’t wait until it’s too late. Contact your senators & urge them to co-sponsor the Prevention of Unconstitutional War with Iran Act TODAY.
We cannot let the Trump Admin drag us into yet another war in the Middle East. This is exactly why the President doesn’t have the constitutional authority to declare war. That’s Congress’s job – and that’s why I’m supporting this legislation to prevent a war with Iran. https://t.co/eb7QBaERbK— Elizabeth Warren (@SenWarren) May 14, 2019
Trump says he doesn’t want war with Iran, but that’s exactly what he wants, because that’s exactly what Saudi Arabia, Netanyahu, al-Qaeda, Bolton, Haley, and other NeoCons/NeoLibs want. That’s what he put first–not America. pic.twitter.com/kAPyxlKXDs— Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) May 14, 2019
This is complete madness.— Tim Kaine (@timkaine) May 14, 2019
Trump cancels a diplomatic deal with Iran—against the advice of Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Mattis, European allies, the International Atomic Energy Agency—and now has drawn up plans to send 120,000 American troops into a new war in the Middle East. https://t.co/a2GtL4vjXb
Remember Iraq? A President told America that we had to go into war because Iraq had nuclear weapons.— Tim Kaine (@timkaine) May 14, 2019
Now look at Iran: We had a diplomatic deal that was working. President Trump broke the deal, and now he’s saying we could wage war against them?
This is the height of idiocy.
Personally, I doubt there will even be a war with Iran. Even the Iranian government believes there will likely just be a lot of hot air and saber rattling in which Blompf and John Bolton surrender the “America First” foreign policy to the Democrats. In the much the same way, his promise not to cut entitlement programs was fumbled by Mick Mulvaney’s purely symbolic budget which went nowhere.
What are the Republicans saying?
Senator @TomCottonAR tells Firing Line if it comes to war with Iran, he is confident the United States would win, and would win swiftly. “Two strikes, the first strike and the last strike,” says the Senator. pic.twitter.com/twTdrFTwHu— Firing Line with Margaret Hoover (@FiringLineShow) May 14, 2019
It will be a cakewalk to win a war with Iran.
Nevermind the fact that there are 89 million people in Iran versus 38 million in Iraq. 95% of Iranians are also Shi’a Muslims. Oh … and 64% of Iraqis are Shi’a Muslims and going to war with Iran would likely mean plunging the entire Middle East into an endless war.
We really have no choice in the matter though. ISRAEL IS OUR GREATEST ALLY and we have to dive into this quagmire solely for its sake. Also, if you disagree and criticize this insane policy, you are an anti-Semite.
