Freshman Dem AOC is all over the place when it comes to Syria. She started off, back in 2017, claiming that we should never have gone to Syria and demanded our troops be pulled. But now that Trump announced a withdrawal from Syria, she is having second thoughts.
“The 2015 introduction of U.S. military forces into hostilities in Syria was never approved by Congress, in violation of the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution of 1973,” says the letter, signed by a bipartisan group of lawmakers, including Republican Sens. Mike Lee and Rand Paul and freshman Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. “We believe that the stated intention of withdrawing our forces is appropriate, and we look forward to the orderly return of our service members from this theater of conflict.”
“It is long past time to rein in the use of force that goes beyond congressional authorization, and we look forward to pursuing this longstanding bipartisan objective with your Administration,” the letter reads. “Finally, we hope this will serve as a model for ending hostilities in the future — in particular, as you and your administration seek a political solution to our involvement in Afghanistan.”
But now that Trump is for bringing our troops home AOC claims withdrawing our troops could endanger innocent lives.
She tweeted about it.
“Trump’s sudden withdrawal from northern Syria & endorsement of Turkey’s actions could have catastrophic consequences & risks laying the ground for immense violence and suffering.
We can pursue a strategy to stop our endless wars without endangering the lives of innocent people.”
Dems need to start realizing that we are in the digital age, gone are the days where someone can say something and there not be a record of it. Warren is also learning this the hard way after she changed a story about how she left a job to make her seem like victim.
