IRAN: Where are our Democratic Leaders?

As I follow the expensive "show of force" against Iran, I want to hear our Democratic leaders speak out.

Not only is this ridiculous and unfounded aggression expensive, it also holds the potential for another Iraq.

Anybody who pays attention knows that a war against Iran would incur a great cost in blood and treasure. It would be worse than Iraq.

1. Bernie.

"Let me be as clear as I can be: a war with Iran would be an absolute disaster. Sixteen years ago, the United States committed one of the worst foreign policy blunders in the history of our country by attacking Iraq. That war was sold to the American people based on a series of lies about weapons of mass destruction. We should remember that one of the leading advocates for that war was John Bolton.

And now, based on the disaster that he helped bring about in Iraq, it appears that John Bolton wants a war in Iran. Letís be clear: a war with Iran would be many times worse than the Iraq war. U.S. military leaders have repeatedly told us that.

The United States Congress must do everything it can to prevent a war with Iran."

2. Tim Kaine was pretty vocal,

 

denouncing Trump/Bolton. He said we were antagonizing Iran trying to push them into war.

Democrats need to speak out with one voice though, instead of one or two people here and there.

4. Trump pulled out of the Iran deal. A Dem president will surely

correct the situation.

5. If We Last That Long

Trump's aggression is so over the top that a disaster could happen before then.

8. Trump/Bolton way to clumsy to pull off a false flag operation without

immediate detection.

7. I like Senator Kaine

As I remember, he opposed the Iraq War, too.
