First Hindu US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard launches 2020 presidential campaign

Can a Politician Oppose War Without Being Called a Kremlin Stooge

In the spring of 2017, Gabbard said she had stopped accepting defense industry money. Meanwhile, the right said that America had to intervene to fight terrorism, even though the CIA's Operation Timber Sycamore was effectively creating more terrorists by training and equipping these non-state actors. She opposes removing Assad from power.

Gabbard made headlines in 2016 by quitting a leadership post at the Democratic National Committee over the party's decision to limit the number of debates between presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, a move analysts said helped Clinton.

Gabbard has struggled to keep together her bid, marked already by the exit of her campaign manager and parting of ways with a consulting firm.

While the argument could also be made that Syria and Assad are not technically combatants of the USA - as war has not been declared against the country - the U.S. has been actively working against the Syrian leader for some time. Gabbard has previously dismissed US -backed rebels and opposition forces against Assad as "terrorists".

Trump says summit with North Korea's Kim will be in Hanoi
Security Council resolutions" imposed on the North for its nuclear and missile programs, the top government spokesman said. A year of mostly fruitless diplomacy has led to serious doubts about Mr.

"No, I think that it is, it continues to be very important for any leader in this country to be willing to meet with others, whether they be friends or adversaries or potential adversaries if we are serious about the pursuit of peace and securing our country", Gabbard, who represents Hawaii, replied. In this capacity, many would likely contend that Assad is at the very least someone who stands against U.S. interests and values. But, lacking support in Congress and among the United States public, he ultimately did not take military actions against Assad.

Gabbard secretly met with Assad in 2017, as the Syrian regime launched bloody offensives on opposition areas killing thousands of civilians. Gabbard has been critical of the airstrikes.

Gabbard been widely criticized for her views on Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, with some considering her an apologist for him. The Hawaii congresswoman compounded that criticism when she subsequently expressed skepticism over reports Assad had used chemical weapons. During her first 12-month tour, she received the Meritorious Service Medal and during her second tour, she was commissioned as a second lieutenant after graduating from the Accelerated Officer Candidate School at the Alabama Military Academy. If more politicians showed the same sort of ambition to gather information on complex foreign-policy situations, we'd all be better off.

She also slammed the administration for supporting Saudi Arabia in its conflict with Yemen. "Rather than defend their position, they resort to name-calling & smears".
