Tulsi Gabbard on the US strike on Syria April 2017

4

“In the lead up to the Iraq War in 2003, both the American people and our Congress were lied to by the Bush administration.

As they sought to go to war in Iraq, they brought “evidence” that they said proved Saddam Hussein had WMDs and therefore the US and the UN should go in and topple him. We all know now that this was false.

Now this destructive war in Syria, like in Iraq, is aimed at the same outcome of regime change that left Iraq in tatters. Hundreds of thousands of civilians have died, and millions have been displaced from their homes.

The cost of war is profound. I’m opposed to the escalation of the counterproductive regime change war in Syria because it will lead to the deaths of more innocent men, women and children. Terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS, the strongest forces on the ground in Syria, will continue to increase their strength and influence over the region in the vacuum of a central government.

And if the Syrian government is overthrown, the terrorists will take over all of Syria and the death and human suffering will be unimaginable. We must not repeat the mistakes of Iraq and Libya.

The Trump Administration must make their case to Congress and the American people as to why we should go to war with Syria before launching unauthorized illegal military strikes against a foreign government.” – Tulsi Gabbard, April 2017

Mobilformatet på Newsvoice är verkligen svårläst. Nästa. Hela texten ovan är i stora blåa versaler som dessutom är centrerade. Inte läsvänligt.
