    In 2020, Sanders is campaigning as a peace candidate. But his congressional record, and his top foreign policy adviser, suggest that events could turn him into a war president.

  • I dont like that hes old

  • Green new deal is Agenda 2030. There are 0 differences besides the name.

    But anything with his policies?

  • I disagree with him not being a communist.

  • Bernie is by far be the least hawkish candidate running, and I'm saying this as somebody who is quite critical of his foreign policy.

    Foreign policy and justice reform

    Going to touch on Afghanistan and Iraq specifically here. As long as Pakistan remains fixated on reinstalling the Taliban in Afghanistan and exporting funding of Taliban/ extremist elements in India, Afghanistan, abroad etc whom harbor extremist elements like ISISK and Haqqani, we shouldn't withdraw. Pakistan is a nuclear power run by an Islamist government. If we do withdraw however, there needs to be increased military relations with india to counter Pakistan and China's BELT initiative. Plus when Bernie makes grossly misinformed remarks on MENA like withdrawing from Iraq it shows a lack of awareness of the region. We should've never occupied Iraq in the first place, but the US must absolutely remain there to continue providing training, airstrikes and intel to Iraqi forces hunting down ISIS cells and push for Iraqi sovereignty from the grip of Iran backed militias that p mch have more control over the the southern part than the central government does. Taking a stance on preventing Sunni terrorism from growing again and again would be cool to see as well, but arms manufactures aren't going to let that happen

    Amazing you say this like 2 days after the Afghanistan papers were published lol. But you also supported the fascist coup in Bolivia so it's nothing new I guess

    No s*** the war in Afghanistan wasn't going to be winnable when the Kabul government chose a weak leader, engaged in corruption of funding and was unable to provide reconstruction funds to the countries most Pashtun provinces like Qandahar where the Taliban's base of support was. Pakistan is adjacent next door and keeping the Taliban alive. Afghanistan was never winnable when the underlying goal was never to install 'democracy, law and order' it was a win for the American war machine. It creates demand for some of our most expensive products. That being said, I still think we shouldn't leave, yet.

    I never remember supporting a fascist coup by the way, remaining indifferent because you aren't yet convinced by sufficient evidence does not translate to being in favor of.

  • I don’t like that he doesn’t directly attack candidates on the debate stage. He’s done it with Biden alittle but when Bloomberg comes on Bernie will probably unload.

    There's nothing wrong with what he is proposing but the US economy is doing well so his whole argument that the game is rigged is falling on deaf ears. I think people and especially Americans love feeling independent, having the choice to spend their money the way they want and all of the Democratic candidates are missing that big point about American culture. It's one of the most individualistic cultures out there and trust in government to make the right decision for the people is at an all time low so what makes him think that people will suddenly trust the government under him?

    He needs to acknowledge that people have realized that keeping the government out of certain aspects of their lives is actually better, government isn't the solution to every single problem, and that government sometimes is the cause of the problem to begin with. The government should be there to empower people, instead it empowers itself and constantly finds new excuses to take over another aspect of people's lives and people are universally tired of it. Liberals want less government in their private lives, conservatives want less government in their economic lives.

    Lmao nah get this s*** out of here

  • Where exactly is Bernie’s stance on guns? Is he on the extreme side of banning guns or common sense laws?

  • I made this post in socialism thread:
    "His support for imperialism in the past in Yugoslavia, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Iran etc. is on record. Right now he still holds many views that are perfectly in line with the mainstream imperialist foreign policy establishment: his view that "Assad got to go", his support for Syrian "moderate rebels", his support for sanctions on Russia and North Korea, calling Maduro and even Chavez brutal dictators, insisting on Venezuela accepting so-called "humanitarian aid" from the US, his support for the NED-funded Hong Kong seperatist movement, his opposition to the BDS movement, his vote against the closing down of Guantanamo Bay etc.

    And of course he won't put an end to the exploitation of the Global South by US corporations.

    But with all that being said, it's obviously better to have this guy in office:

    Artboard

    Than to have a president that literally uses the Monroe doctrine by name as a justification for his administration's efforts to overthrow left-wing governments in Latin America.

    But we shouldn't hold any illusions about what he represents. Bernie is still a push over when it comes to imperialism. He's not a principled anti-imperialist, there really are no anti-imperialists candidates running, but he is the least hawkish candidate, and it would be a lot better to have a US president that wouldn't have couped Evo Morales."
