Tulsi Gabbard Syria Trump Missile Strikes Regime Change War Interventionism Tyson Manker

WASHINGTON (April 11, 2017) — Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, an Iraq War Veteran and Major in the Army National Guard, is facing criticisms from establishment Democratic has-beens, like former Gov. Howard Dean, for questioning the wisdom of Trump’s unilateral missile strikes in Syria.

After the President ordered the firing of 59 missiles without Congressional notice, Gabbard issued a statement, “Trump’s Military Strikes in Syria Are Reckless and Short-Sighted.

Gabbard slammed the strikes, saying “Trump has taken the advice of war hawks” in an escalation she warned “is short-sighted and will lead to more dead civilians, more refugees, the strengthening of al-Qaeda and other terrorists, and a direct confrontation between the United States and Russia—which could lead to nuclear war.”

Gabbard also said if Assad was found to be responsible for chemical attacks against civilians, she would be “the first to call for his prosecution and execution by the International Criminal Court.”

“Some of my friends never came home from [the] Iraq war. We have the duty to not allow lies/speculation to drag us into regime change war again.” –Tulsi Gabbard

Later, Gabbard tweet-roasted neoliberal Democrats who, waiting like puppets, instantly fell into line behind the very man they have vilified and called a liar (rightly so) for months.

The Hawaii Congresswoman also made a number of cable news appearances to challenge the judgment of rushing blindly into another regime-change war over the pretense of WMDs on limited evidence and no consultation with Congress. “We need to learn our lessons of the past.”

For her wisdom, establishment war mongers who have never touched a rifle or come within 100 miles of a battlefield, went into attack mode.

Somebody named Neera Tanden called foul on Gabbard, who with Senator John McCain, had previously met with Assad earlier during a fact-finding trip to Syria.

Howard Dean, a burnt out Clintonite turned Big Pharma consultant, tweet-responded, “This is a disgrace. Gabbard should not be in Congress.”

Beyond their opportunistic attacks on a U.S. military officer and combat veteran who is doing her Constitutional duties (Art. I Sec. 8 Clause 11), these nitwits intentionally overlooked meetings they themselves had with Assad, like for example, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.

Dean, a DNC Superdelegate who “doesn’t represent people,” later tweeted nonsensically, “I’m not blasting a Dem for disagreeing. I’m blasting for raising doubts about Assad’s chemical massacre. I believe in country over party.”

True to form, Gabbard stayed firm and held her ground, blasting colleagues for their blind rush to judgment without considering the consequences.

“Some of my friends never came home from [the] Iraq war,” she said, “We have the duty to not allow lies/speculation to drag us into regime change war again.”

Thank you, Tulsi Gabbard. Keep leading.
