Both right and left are stumping Trump over Iran, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan
But he now has Democrats on record as saying that scoring political points against Trump is far more important than backing liberty movements in authoritarian regimes.
This, after Democrats last year complained that Republicans in the Senate weren’t doing enough to show their support for Iranians when protests began over rises in gasoline prices.
McCarthy’s resolution should be a no-brainer even for partisan Democrats.
Townhall notes that it does the following: 1) condemns Iran for killing over 1,000 Iranian citizens who were protesting their government, 2) condemns the Government of Iran for shooting down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, 3) condemns the Government of Iran for repeatedly lying to its people and to the world about its responsibility for the downing of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, 4) calls on the Government of Iran to refrain from the use of violence, and protect the rights of freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.
“The Iranian people – and the whole world – need to know that America stands with those who stand for freedom, and it’s pathetic that Democrats have refused to lend their support,” said Mark Bednar, McCarthy’s Strategic Communications Director.
Meanwhile, Senate Republicans aren’t giving the president much leeway to deal with Iran, either, which is as baffling as it is frustrating.
Freaking idiots. Swamp creatures.
Baffling, because all Trump did was take out one of the biggest terrorist threats to U.S. forces in the Middle East when he ordered a strike against Qassem Soleimani; he’s not looking to start a war with Iran.
In fact, President Trump has been trying to end them — in Syria, where he was criticized by Right and Left for leaving, Afghanistan, where he’s been criticized by Right and Left for trying to leave, and Iraq, where the pullout criticism has been equally bipartisan.
