Sanders Statement on Assassination of Suleimani

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Sen. Bernie Sanders on Thursday issued the following statement after the assassination of Qassim Suleimani in a strike reportedly ordered by President Donald Trump: 

“When I voted against the war in Iraq in 2002, I feared it would lead to greater destabilization of the country and the region. Today, 17 years later, that fear has unfortunately turned out to be true. 

“The United States has lost approximately 4,500 brave troops, tens of thousands have been wounded, and we’ve spent trillions on this war. 

“Trump’s dangerous escalation brings us closer to another disastrous war in the Middle East that could cost countless lives and trillions more dollars. 

“Trump promised to end endless wars, but this action puts us on the path to another one.”
