Gabbard has repeated spoken about her tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and how the things she saw and experienced effected her. She feels betrayed that the American People and the World were lied to by the Bush Admin. She's also spoken about the working conditions of the "third party country workers".Wow. I cannot get past your view on Assange and your minimization of his role in throwing the 2016 election. Oh, and let’s continue to remember he is a self aggrandizing creep who smeared feces on the walls of the Ecuadorian embassy during a temper tantrum, and who is / was accused of sexual misconduct in Sweden. A real hero of journalism!
Also you don’t defend her role in some of the events I pointed out like her refusal to step up against Bannon. You note that it doesn’t matter. Your other defense in her jumping in to meet Trump is ‘well other Democrats did it too’. Not strong enough to convince people that she is a great choice
And why is it so hard for her to call out Assad?
Another question that popped up in my head is she discusses regime change by Clinton and Obama and how it led to several world crises, but I didn’t find any criticisms by her of regime change by Bush in Iraq, which led to the birth of ISIL.
I just responded to your original post. If we're all are going to have a healthy debate about the candidates, then we should examine the records for all the candidates.
She's called Assad a dictator in fact she's said he was brutal dictator and has not disputed the reference to war crimes in Syria. My opinion is whatever says she not going to be enough for Democrats. This has been a democrat led narrative against Tulsi Gabbard because of her stance against Regime Changes in other countries who have resources that the US foreign policy would love to get their hands on by any means necessary. The military industrial complex is REAL and ALIVE in the beltway. Members of both Democrats and Repubicans want it to continue.
She was a rising star a few years, then she resigned from DNC, supported Bernie Sanders and now "They don't her"(meme Mariah Carey saying she didn't know Jennifer Lopez).
The "Assad Apologist" and "A friend to Assad" narrative is there to smear her. Does anyone really believe she's Assad's friend?
Again, my job is not to "convince" anyone to vote for anyone. I just wanted to point out that Gabbard did not visit Syria and Egypt alone. In regards to the Egyptian trip I wanted to clarify the first meeting was in Paris and then she and others traveled to Cairo.
I think it's good we all have a healthy debate the candidates and their records.
