    Sanders: 'I fear' Trump 'could drag us into a war'

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said he fears President Trump could “drag” the U.S. into a war with Iran that would be worse than the Iraq War.

    “What we have to face as a nation is that the two great foreign policy disasters of our lifetimes were the war in Vietnam and the war in Iraq. Both of those wars were based on lies,” Sanders said at Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential primary debate.

    “And right now, what I fear very much is we have a president who is lying again and could drag us into a war that is even worse than the war in Iraq,” he added.

    Sanders, who has risen to near the top of polls of the Democratic field in early voting states, has made his past opposition to the Iraq War a centerpiece of his foreign policy, highlighting his vote against the conflict as evidence that he has the proper judgement to serve as commander in chief.

    Tensions between the U.S. and Iran have skyrocketed in recent weeks after President Trump authorized a strike that killed Tehran’s most powerful general, Qassem Soleimani. Iran responded by launching missiles at Iraqi military bases that house U.S. troops, though no service members were killed, and both sides signaled they would seek to ease tensions following the strike.

    Trump has repeatedly touted the drone strike that killed Soleimani, claiming the general was directing attacks against multiple U.S. embassies. Several Democrats, however, including 2020 candidates, have expressed skepticism that the general posed an imminent threat to U.S. interests.

    We could have an active war going in Iran, Ukraine and Venezuela.
    Or any number of other scenarios that would be much worse, like a ground war in Korea.

    What are you talking about? We are in the best possible situation we could possibly be in right now. Iranian regime wants peace. The citizens want peace. Trump wants peace. Trump even tricked congress into wanting peace...

    How cute. Sander is trying to make it seem like he won't get us involved in new wars.

    He's smart enough to do that and he'll probably win if he sticks to it

    It won't take very long to get them home but it won't be overnight either but Iraq says they can't stay and they are coming home just like Trump said.
