Bernie Sanders And “The Resistance” Slink Away On Syria
Michael Tracey

A bit of bias perhaps, as Sanders said that Trump “must explain to the American people exactly what this military escalation in Syria is intended to achieve, and how it fits into the broader goal of a political solution, which is the only way Syria’s devastating civil war ends." So he is not calling for America to take out Assad and implement regime change, and he in no uncertain terms condemned military engagement including Trump’s action — “I am deeply concerned that these strikes could lead to the United States once again being dragged back into the quagmire of long-term military engagement in the Middle East. If the last 15 years have shown anything, it’s that such engagements are disastrous for American security, for the American economy, and for the American people.”
