During last night's Tucker Carlson show, he attempted to find out why the democratic party, the same people who prided themselves on being anti-war during the Bush administration, were so god damned eager to wage war with just about anyone they could find willing to participate. Inside of their party is one sole source of reason, Tulsi Gabbard, Iraqi war veteran, and Congresswoman from Hawaii who sits on the Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees. In response to Trump's actions in Syria, Gabbard issued the following statement.
“It angers and saddens me that President Trump has taken the advice of war hawks and escalated our illegal regime change war to overthrow the Syrian government. This escalation is short-sighted and will lead to more dead civilians, more refugees, the strengthening of al-Qaeda and other terrorists, and a direct confrontation between the United States and Russia—which could lead to nuclear war. “This Administration has acted recklessly without care or consideration of the dire consequences of the United States attack on Syria without waiting for the collection of evidence from the scene of the chemical poisoning. If President Assad is indeed guilty of this horrible chemical attack on innocent civilians, I will be the first to call for his prosecution and execution by the International Criminal Court. However, because of our attack on Syria, this investigation may now not even be possible. And without such evidence, a successful prosecution will be much harder.”
The subsequent result of her seemingly rational position was leaders on the left calling for her to step down.
This is a disgrace. Gabbard should not be in Congress. https://t.co/yDTh43GZam— Howard Dean (@GovHowardDean) April 9, 2017
Carlson tackled the subject in an eloquent 1-minute monolog. One of his guests last night was a Democratic strategist, Al Mattour, war hawk -- a man interested in overseeing the deaths of thousands. In a nutshell, Al believes we should wage war with anyone who attempts to 'disrupt our elections.' Tucker asked Mattour, plainly, 'how does having a confrontation with Russia makes our country more safer and prosperous?' Mattour replied 'it makes us safer in our democratic processes to make sure their integrity is preserved.' When Tucker juxtaposed China's actions towards the United States against Russia, asking 'why aren't you pushing for confrontation with China? They're doing everything Russia is doing, and more,' Mattour agreed that we should be confronting them in a similar bellicose fashion. Lastly, Stephen Cohen, Professor of Russian studies at Princeton and NYU, an actual expert on China, weighed in, saying 'Russia thinks we're crazy, completely crazy.' He even took some time to express his 'disgust' with Al Mattour, saying 'your previous guest, I don't mean to be rude to him. First of all, he doesn't know what he's talking about. And, secondly, he excludes the reality that Russia has a politics. And the politics in Russia today as we talk is [...] the concern that America is preparing war against Russia. If not on Syria, then on the other two cold war fronts [...] where NATO is building up in an unprecedented way. This is not good because they have nuclear weapons and because accidents happen.' He then theorized what the conversation between Putin and Tillerson was like, pointing to the two having a history of trust together from the time Tillerson led Exxon Mobile.
'Rex, says Putin, what in the world is going on in Washington?'
Professor Cohen, ominously, summed it up, 'I'm not young. I've been doing this 40 years, sometimes as a Professor, sometimes inside. I have never been as worried as I am today about the possibility of war with Russia.'
