"I think it is important for us to send a signal that we are not hellbent on regime change, presidential candidate Barack Obama said in 2007. He was talking about Iran but citing former President George W. Bushs disastrous precedent of ousting Saddam Hussein in Iraq. Obama defined his candidacy in opposition to that 2003 regime change war and eventually became president.
Times have changed. Most Democrats in Tuesday nights CNN/New York Times presidential debate blasted President Trumps decision to withdraw American troops from northern Syria and said they believe his decision endangers the Kurds. But only one candidate said the United States should also stop pursuing an overall regime change war in that country.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said, We've got to understand the reality of the situation there, which is that the slaughter of the Kurds being done by Turkey is yet another negative consequence of the regime change war that we've been waging in Syria.
Gabbard cited U.S. sanctions on Syria, American military intervention, and our aid to rebel groups that have included al Qaeda, all in the name of undermining Syrian dictator Bashar Assads regime.
Gabbard noted that this started in 2011, offering a reminder that this regime change war began and was overseen mostly by Obama. Her fellow Democrats werent having it.

Regime change is fine with them as long as it allows them to oppose Trump.
If they say they don't support regime change then hammer them for wanting to just keep our troops there as pawns caught in the middle.
Dems are more concerned with being anti Trump than they are about being anti war.
They never were anti-war. They were and are anti-military.
Dems are either pro regime change or they aren’t.
If they aren’t hutv ant our troops there they just want us caught in the middle as some kind of peacekeepers.
But isn’t that what their beloved UN is for?
If she were a president she would be Baberaham Lincoln.
Unless Obama or some other Dems is the president using our troops as pawns on something misguided.
With Dems it is all about virtue signalling.
Attacking Trump, saving the Kurds, etc, etc.
That’s all it is.
CNN has now labeled her a Russian agent. No shit, they actually did.
She’s feminine and attractive. Dems don’t like those qualities in their women-folk.
I guess they still see Russian collusion around every corner.

It was totally necessary to oust Saddam from his invasion of Kuwait as Saudi would have been next. This was not about good or bad but the flow of oil. Bush senior then made a fatal mistake. He decided to then not alter the leadership of Iraq. Bush screwed up big time and Bush Junior was worse
At the end of the first war Saddam was our bitch. At the end of the second war he was our total bitch and then the insanity of democracy in a society that will never have democracy was attempted. It failed. Then Obama withdrew from Iraq and the Middle East went up in flames and war.
In the words of President Roosevelt when questioned by one of his advisors about Somoza senior of Nicaragua. Roosevelt’s aid said Somoza is a “Son of a Bitch.” Roosevelt replied, “but he is my “Son of a Bitch.”
The Bush Senior nor Junior understood how to deal with a “Son of a Bitch” nor did they understand the impossibility of Democracy in a Muslim nation.
The Middle East with the exception of Israel will always be ruled by a despot. The best despot is one that is our “Son of a Bitch.”
The tragedy of today’s Syria is a function of the Obama Administration. Assad is a totalitarian “Son of a Bitch” Unfortunately he is Russia’s and not ours.
Democracy is a fragil concept in our nation and other Western Nations. It is impossible in a Muslim nation.
Tulsi is strangely on the wrong podium.
She is mostly reasonable in her positions and the crap about the president is nust that but, she has to throw it out to keep her bonafides
She aint dumb, just misinformed and misguided. Trump should have a conversation with her, and I bet shed flip.
Nothing would make me vote for her after she sold out on illegal immigration but I like her on some issues.
Forget the cheesecake photos, this is why I wish she was on our side.
If she were a president, she would be Josef Stalin.
Ignore the T&A ... it’s just a distraction.
She’s a hard core commie, same as the rest of the democRAT ass-clown circus.
Tulsi Gabbard is an evangelist, doing work among the heathens.
Don’t know how much of a communist she may be, but according to wiki she’s a vegan and a practicing Hindu.
She’s never written a book.
Look behind the mask, is there anything there?
