Tulsi Gabbard On Conflict With Iran: 'We've Got To Choose Diplomacy' | Katy Tur | MSNBC


  1. But if we have a clear, attainable mission, how will they manage to keep a Lord of the Flies-style immortal boogeyman to control republican voters?

    1. @Don Williams Katy may be a hack too. It was a softball question with no follow up question. I want to hear leadership “America created the Iran of today, Trump should be charged with war crimes, Obama was right to take the direction with Iran that he did, I choose diplomacy because there is no other GOOD option, I will consult the world on how to move ahead with Iran, We will never starve countries as a means of negotiations (sanctions). Think Russia, N.K. Iran. Sanctions make things dangerous.

    1. Acaciaeight 16squared Or maybe the guy who took out a 3 Billion Dollar insurance policy on the Twin towers just months before knows otherwise.

    2. @Don Williams Most Americans know the truth behind 911 but there are unfortunately an educated ignorant human beings that these politicians n media play a trick on… 20 years later if you still haven’t figured out the propaganda how it works Then you stay on you sleeping pills

  2. Unbelievable! Gabbard said the right thing! Bring all our troops back home & work things out with IRAN! I FOR ONCE AGREE WITH GABBARD!🥂👏👍🍹😅

    1. Yeah stop.spending billions a week on war and spend those billions at home. Imagine how well the economy would do with that injection of capital in infrastructure, schools etc

  3. I’m watching the crazytown excuses being put out by House Republicans on the floor _right now_ for _not_ limiting Trump’s powers to wag the dog.
    They’re debating using unbelievably twisted logic. Everything from claiming that the Embassy in Baghdad was going to be blown up (without proof, saying Trump’s word was all the intel they needed) to claiming this is all Jimmy Carter’s fault, that we’re not in conflict with Iran, yet we have to all fall in line with Republican war plans & not be a “divided” country & trust Trump.
    That we have to give him unrestrained war power so that we do NOT get a war. That’s insane. I can’t believe these people are Congressmen.

  4. The Congress shall have Power … To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water …
    — Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the U.S. Constitution

    Pierce Butler of South Carolina was the only delegate to the Philadelphia Convention who suggested giving the Executive the power to take offensive military action. He suggested the President should be able to, but in practice would have the character not to do so without mass support. Elbridge Gerry, a delegate from Massachusetts, summed up the majority viewpoint saying he “never expected to hear in a republic a motion to empower the Executive alone to declare war”. George Mason, Thomas Jefferson, and others voiced similar sentiments

  5. *”If we nominate Trump, we will be destroyed… and we will deserve it.”* _~ Senator Lindsey Graham, May 2016_

    1. Now he is a trump flunky .He knows better so may God help us all .trump and neovons want to get us into World War Three .

    2. Yep!!!… Just like the Despicable Disgusting and Disgraceful T-Rump!!!😝😜😣😒😡…


    3. @voodooblue61 blue… Oops!!!… Accidentally Eraced your Username… But the above message was a response to your Post!!!😉

  6. Listen to this women!
    I didn’t pull out like my wife suggested and now have to deal with 3 terror organisms at home!
    Lesson learned after 3rd time

  7. At this point I can’t trust anything tulsi says, she’s a republican heart and soul and only a democrat in name . Don’t believe anything she says!

    1. Yeah,shame on her and Andrew Yang for not following straight down the Democratic lines and reaching across party lines. This is coming from someone whose family were JFK and LBJ Democrats and voted for Obama in 2008 and supported Ben Carson in 2016.

    2. These are the same people who get angry at republicans who blindly follow trump but criticize tulsi for not blindly following the Democratic Party.

    3. Quentin Campbell uniting your own party should take precedent. Going on Fox Noise and appeasing conservative white men by trashing the Democratic Party won’t get you the Democratic nomination.
      She could do us all a huge favor by switching over to the grand old party and stop wasting our time with this charade. That’s where she belongs anyway.
