Tulsi Gabbard Condemns Rush to War, Is Promptly Attacked by Establishment Democrats

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.

    Tulsi Gabbard, you rock!!! Thank you for doing your job as a Representative. I think you may be the only one who lives up to the oath of office.

  2. I support the Madame Major and not the DNC’s Super Delegate.

  3. Z54 says:

    They’re right about Coward Dean being a has been. He also took money from an Iranian terror group to be a spokesperson for them along with other amerikan politicians to get Slick Oily to remove them from amerika’s terror watch list!

  4. Ona HardingAhrens says:

    We Stand With Tulsi!!!!

  5. Kdssz445@gmail.com says:

    These politicians are quick to send other people’s kids to war. War is the final solution, not a knee jerk pretending to care Weekend activity. The hero needs to be surrounded with cheers and support.

  6. Moira doherty says:

    I stand with Rep. Gabbard.

  7. Mark Reich says:

    I give all my support to Rep.Gabbard. she speaks the truth. The leadership of the democrats are sell out’s that’s why we’re in the position were in.

  8. Lisa says:

    We stand with Tulsi. Wish we could exile Sean on some deserted island.

  9. Jorge says:

    Go, Tulsi!

  10. Ileana Dominguez-Urban says:

    I’m sorry. This is a Voters for Bernie website? How do you feel about the fact that Bernie Sanders is saying the same thing as Howard Dean?

    “Other liberal lawmakers — including the independent Vermont Sen. Sanders … — have argued against starting a war with Syria following Thursday’s strike, but few have questioned Assad’s responsibility for the chemical attack which spurred Trump to action.”


  11. Ileana Dominguez-Urban says:

    Howard Dean @GovHowardDean
    Engaging in dialogue isn’t the problem. It’s claiming there is doubt Assad uses chemical warfare. She sounds like Trump making excuses

  12. Ileana Dominguez-Urban says:

    So, basically, these aren’t examples of Democrats, establishment or otherwise, condemning Tulsi Gabbard for warning against a rush to war.

  13. Bruce says:

    Go Tulsi. I am with you.

  14. […] whose skepticism prompted attacks from establishment Democratic has-beens, fired back at critics who have never stepped within […]
