Sanders Calls Out Bolton’s Hawkish Intentions

Sanders Calls Out Bolton’s Hawkish Intentions Sanders Calls Out Bolton’s Hawkish Intentions

US Senator Bernie Sanders issued a live video saying that war with Iran would be "many times worse than the Iraq War", in response to reports that the US is building up military presence in the Middle East to counter alleged Iranian threats.  
The drive is reportedly spearheaded by John Bolton, US President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, who served in the George W. Bush administration that launched a war against Iraq.
"Sixteen years ago, the US committed one of the worst blunders in history of our country by attacking Iraq," Sanders said in a video recorded live on Periscope and posted to Twitter. 
He called out Bolton as one of the "leading advocates" of the war, which he dubbed as the "biggest foreign policy disaster" in modern US history.
"Now, based on that disaster that he helped bring about in Iraq, it appears that John Bolton wants a war in Iran," Sanders said. "A war in Iran would, in my view, be many times worse than the Iraq War."
Sanders said he was working to build a coalition to force Trump to ask Congress for authorization if he wants to engage in military action against Iran.
