An emerging authentic and compelling anti-neocon and anti-neolib voice in the US Congress? Let’s hope….
Blitzer couldn’t help himself with his Zionist dog and pony stunt but stopped just short of putting his foot in it. He realized he would be put in his place by Gobbard. First by referring to Assad having Iran and Hizbullah as allies, then a speech about how many hundreds of thousands Assad had killed, had injured or had caused to become refugees..
GABBARD introduced a bill Friday. This could be a real turning point (work with Russia and Assad.) I’d like feedback.
“Washington, DC—Today, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) and Rep. Austin Scott (R-GA), both members of the House Armed Services Committee, introduced H.R. 4108, a bipartisan bill to end U.S. efforts to overthrow the Syrian Arab Republic led by President Bashar al-Assad.”
I love her “get real” approach, but her bill’s co-sponsor says don’t attack Assad “for now” so that’s still in some minds. The actual text is not yet available (unless it could be leaked from her office.) This may not get support from purist anti-war types who complain about collateral damage, and for sure the French blitz on Raqqa had been blind revenge that killed plenty of civilians, and the US has done its best all along to ruin infrastructure.
Of course, there is slim chance this will even get out of committee–
She makes a logical and clear case for Syria, which means she’ll never make it in corrupted Washington politics today. AIPAC probably put her on the hitlist after this interview.
The fact that Wolf Blitzer, former Israeli Lobbyist, is the lead anchor at CNN makes the whole network tainted. *Funny note: Genius Blitzer was on Celebrity Jeopardy and got a big fat zero for his final score – and he is surely part of that great big meritocracy that MW always waxes about.
