Bernie Sanders Thinks War Is Overrated, And He’s Right

Bernie Sanders Thinks War Is Overrated, And He’s Right

John Frederick Kaufman

When Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was a candidate for president, he seemed uninterested in talking about foreign policy.

Instead, Sanders cast himself as a progressive populist and focused almost exclusively on domestic issues, particularly speaking out against the injustice of economic policies that support the wealthy.

A quick check of Sanders’ campaign website reveals that his foreign policy leaned liberal but was far from radical.


War is Overrated??? What a powder-puff statement.

War is goddamn criminal madness and anyone who starts one should be first put away in a rubber room and then, after trial, sent to the gallows.


So, you’re in favor of hanging the CIA leaders? And, the House of Saud confederation? How about the 76 Senators who gave a thumbs up to Iraq 2.0? Were to begin and end, eh? But, I agree with you.
Sen. Sanders and his wife are already suspected of being somewhat " unpatriotic " by Trump’s DOJ and surely by the Trumpster. This foreign policy statement is no great shakes, but it is a good start.
We should give him a boost, not a boot.

Seriously, how is our military in Afghanistan keeping the citizens of the United States safe?

Anyone willing to explain that to us?


Until all politicians supporting AIPAC are thrown out of DC, there will be no peace in the world. This includes all aspects of capitalism, which is class war.


War is OVERKILL!!! (and almost ALLWAYS unnecessary!}

They are keeping the price of opioids down-


The Afghanistan War was a terrible mistake. And yet it continues. Horrible judgment.

War may not be keeping US safe but it’s making some of them very rich. Your economy is based on employment in the national and private military, weapon and chemical manufacture for domestic and foreign sales, on grand theft of foreign property.
