Opposing Iran War Doesn’t Make You Conservative or Liberal, It Makes You Smart

‘Despite the establishment telling Americans otherwise, the United States is marching directly into a major conflict with Iran that could have catastrophic implications. The two-party paradigm’s grip on Trump supporters has them shifting from previously supporting Trump’s anti-intervention stance on which he campaigned, into full on support for a senseless and dangerous war. This is the exact same scenario that unfolded with Obama when he turned the antiwar Left into pro-war interventionists. If you stand against this escalation, according to the establishment, you are anti-America. But in reality, you’re just smart.

To those foolish enough to be supporting such idiotic war games, consider the fact that Iran is not Iraq or Afghanistan or Syria or Libya. Iran’s military is ranked as the 14th most powerful armed forces in the world by Global Firepower’s 2019 Military Strength Ranking. A war with them would not resemble that of a war with Iraq. Instead, Americans would see large scale cyber attacks on our infrastructure, clandestine operations carried out inside the United States, and potential nuclear fallout. Hundreds of thousands of civilian casualties are likely.

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who deployed on two combat tours to Iraq, painted the picture perfectly in a tweet pointing out that a war with Iran would make the Iraq war look like a picnic.

“As someone who understands the situation in Iraq and Syria, I can tell you that if we do not get our troops out of Iraq and Syria now, we will be dragged deeper and deeper into a quagmire and war that will make the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan look like a picnic,” she wrote. We agree.

This entire debacle started over “top secret” claims that the US was under an impending threat from Qassim Soleimani and his forces. Americans were never once shown any evidence of this. We are merely supposed to believe them and then go off and die in a war for them. What’s more, this “most dangerous man in the world” was praised by America just four years ago as his Quds Forces not only helped push back ISIS in Iraq, but lead the action to do it.’
