Why Peace Action PAC is endorsing Bernie Sanders for President


After 15 years of war, the next president of the United States will inherit daunting foreign policy challenges. Sadly, many of those challenges were fueled by an ďact first, think laterĒ U.S. military policy in places like Iraq and Libya that has backfired. At the same time, the new president will need to sustain diplomatic initiatives started by President Obama including the Iranian nuclear deal and peace talks to end the Syria war.

We need a president that can cultivate diplomatic openings while turning the country away from an over-reliance on the blunt instrument military. Bernie Sanders has vocally opposed this military-first foreign policy and the sprawling quagmire the U.S. is enmeshed in. Thatís why Peace Action PAC is endorsing Senator Bernie Sanders for President in the Democratic primary.
Sanders didnít just get the Iraq war vote right. Then and now, heís had the foresight to predict the dangers of a military-first foreign policy.
