Bernie Sanders Stands Out Among Democrats in Anti-Iran War Messaging After Death of Soleimani | Fortune

Sanders, who unlike Biden did not vote for the use of military force in Iraq in 2002, tweeted, made videos, and spoke out repeatedly against any war in the Middle East.

“Trump’s dangerous escalation brings us closer to another disastrous war in the Middle East that could cost countless lives and trillions more dollars,” said Sanders before touting his long anti-war history. “Trump promised to end endless wars, but this action puts us on the path to another one.”

Later, Sanders added, “We must do more than just stop war with Iran. We must firmly commit to ending U.S. military presence in the Middle East in an orderly manner. We must end our involvement in the Saudi-led intervention in Yemen. We must bring our troops home from Afghanistan.”

Gabbard and Yang echoed Sanders’ anti-war sentiments.
