“President Trump’s order to take out Qasem Soleimani was morally, constitutionally and strategically correct,” wrote Joe Lieberman in a blistering takedown on the Democrats.
He continued, “It deserves more bipartisan support than the begrudging or negative reactions it has received thus far from my fellow Democrats.”
Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Joe said, “all the questions are being raised by Democrats and all the praise is coming from Republicans… the partisanship that has infected and disabled so much of U.S. domestic policy”
Joe then warned the Democrats, “if we can keep partisan politics out of foreign affairs, it is entirely obvious that we shall speak with infinitely greater authority abroad.”
Joe said the “skeptical or negative reactions are creating the risk that the U.S. will be seen as acting and speaking with less authority abroad at this important time.”
Correct. Trump does not want war with Iran but he could not allow them to keep taking potshots at our bases and other regional assets.
What we need to do before accusing Trump of war crimes is to stay calm and stand united and figure out what to do next to avoid escalation. Attacking the other side in a partisan way only helps our enemies.
“It may be that today’s Democratic Party simply doesn’t believe in the use of force against America’s enemies in the world,” he wrote before adding,
“If enough voters decide that Democrats can’t be trusted to keep America safe, Mr. Trump won’t have much trouble winning a second term in November.”
Important call for bipartisanship from Joe Lieberman. Sadly, much of the hysteria from 2020 Dems stems from anti-Trump hatred. Nobody wants a land war in Iran—it’s not going to happen—but killing terrorists who are trying to kill Americans makes us safer. https://t.co/t4CcjbTNr8
