Until you realized that gabbard is even more of a hawk than Hillary and actually does support bombing the living crap out kf Muslims
Gabbard said “the real issue is what are we doing about it? What’s the strategy on the ground in Syria? Because that’s something that I’m finding very confusing. There’s no clarity on exactly who our enemy is as the United States and what kind of mission we’re trying to accomplish. We’re seeing [these] very contradictory statements saying that — from the administration saying that they’re going after ISIS, but in the same token, they are allowing Turkey to bomb the Kurds, who have been our most effective, trustworthy ground allies fighting against ISIS, both in Syria and Iraq. They’re saying that they are focused on getting rid of Assad, and both directly and indirectly helping these rebels, many — the vast majority of which are made up of al Qaeda, al-Nusra, and other Islamic extremists groups, including ISIS, people who are sworn enemies, because they are working to overthrow Assad. There are so many issues here with what’s happening on the ground that I think have to be dealt with, otherwise we’re going to continue to see what we’re seeing, which is ISIS, and these Islamic extremists groups getting stronger, and if Assad is over thrown, then we’re going to see the establishment of an Islamic caliphate, and a greater threat to the people there, and people around the world than we’ve seen so far.”
