Sanders’ Foreign Policy – Not Antiwar

by | Aug 28, 2015

Senator Bernie Sanders has a growing following, particularly among progressives. While one may think progressives tend to oppose the US militaristic foreign policy, Sanders’ record on war is not as consistent as some would have us believe. In the Middle East his positions, as explained recently to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, are quite bizarre: support Saudi Arabia’s push for regional domination. The Saudis would seem an unlikely partner for a progressive — considering the kingdom’s record on civil rights and its support for proxy wars in Syria and elsewhere.
