  • September 18, 2017: Bernie Sanders was one of only EIGHT who voted no on a bill called the National Defense Authorization Act, giving $37 billion MORE than what trump had originally requested, totaling $640 BILLION on the defense budget. Why are we adding to the already inflated military budget? Why are we giving trump MORE than what he asked for? Why did so many "democrats" vote yes on this bill?

  • October 10, 2002: Bernie Sanders has strongly opposed the invasion of Iraq. He voted against the Iraq war and warned at the time that an invasion could “result in anti-Americanism, instability and more terrorism.” and “I am concerned about the problems of so-called unintended consequences. Who will govern Iraq when Saddam Hussein is removed and what role will the U.S. play in ensuing a civil war that could develop in that country? Will moderate governments in the region who have large Islamic fundamentalist populations be overthrown and replaced by extremists? Will the bloody conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Authority be exacerbated? And these are just a few of the questions that remain unanswered.” See below for the video statement he made on the floor of the House of Representatives on October 9, 2002.

  • January 12, 1991: Sanders voted against authorizing US military force in Iraq. As a congressperson, Bernie Sanders spoke out in unequivocal opposition to the 1991 resolution authorizing the first Gulf War. “I have a real fear that the region is not going to be more peaceful or more stable after the war,” he said at the time.

  • Bernie Sanders has been anti-war his entire career. He has opposed all the recent U.S. wars of aggression and has said the U.S. should take military intervention “off the table” in Venezuela and Iran. Instead, Sanders emphasizes diplomacy and the need to root out the underlying causes of international conflict. 

 

  • Bernie has broken ranks with upwards of 80 percent of his Democratic colleagues by consistently voting against Trump’s increases in Pentagon spending. Sanders, in his book Where We Go from Here, asks the question, “Do we really have to spend more on the military than the next 10 nations combined — most of which are our allies?”
