    Elizabeth Warren Backs Withdrawal Of U.S. Troops From Syria And Afghanistan

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) supports withdrawing American troops from military engagements in Syria and Afghanistan, she told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow on Wednesday night.
    Warren, who announced an exploratory committee this week for a presidential run in 2020, made the comments when asked for her views on President Donald Trump’s recent decision to pull all U.S. military personnel out of Syria.
    “I think it is right to get our troops out of Syria ― and let me add, I think it’s right to get our troops out of Afghanistan,” Warren said.
    “I think that everybody who keeps saying, ‘No, no, no, we can’t do that,’ in the defense establishment needs to explain what they think winning in those wars [looks] like and where the metrics are,” the senator said.
    But Warren disagreed with Trump’s abrupt announcement of his decision on Syria, saying that policy shouldn’t be conducted via Twitter.
    “We actually need to plan this out and talk about it with our allies, how we ensure more safety and stability in the region,” she said.

    Bull$#@!.

    She is just saying the same thing everyone else is saying, pushing the CIA talking point that this was a snap decision made after a single phone call.

    “We actually need to plan this out and talk about it with our allies, how we ensure more safety and stability in the region,” she said.
    Contradictory statement. Spineless, really. We have no obligation to ensure safety and stability in other countries. That's what gets us into these messes.

    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."

    So Warren is now more non-interventionist than Noam Chomsky, who said it was a huge mistake to withdraw out of Syria. Got it.
