"The Democrats have a lesser but similar set of options available, which is why even Bernie Sanders only calls for holding the Pentagon budget at its present staggering level or for the most modest of cuts, not for reducing it significantly."
"To take Bernie Sanders as an example -- because he’s as close to an antiwar candidate as you’ll find in the present election season -- he recently put something like his stamp of approval on the White House drone assassination project and the “kill list” that goes with it."
As Tom's statements above show, Bernie's anti-war credentials are far from sterling.
Bernie's absence of comment against the US penchant for warfare seems to suggest that Bernie is a bit of a hawk. Does he grudgingly follow the warmonger's line because the Democrats demand it, or does he willingly embrace it?
A rejection of warfare is usually the position of the kind and considerate, which Bernie otherwise seems to be. Why does he withhold this rejection?
