Bernie SCHOOLS Reporter On Iran



senator Bernie Sanders was on Face the Nation this weekend and the host asked him a couple of different questions about Donald Trump almost starting a war with Iran just a couple of days earlier but the particular wording that she used for that question was incredibly casual for an incredibly serious topic and Bernie Sanders picked up on that as you'll see was president Trump's decision this week to call off that strike the right one see it's like somebody setting a fire to a basket full of paper and then putting it out he helped create the crisis and then he stopped the attacks the idea that we're looking at a president in the United States who number one thinks that a war with Iran is something that might be good for this country he was just doing a limited strike well just a limited scope well I'm sorry I just didn't know that it's okay to simply attack another country with bombs just a limited that's an act of warfare that is the is that maybe we just is that they oh that's the only reasonable way to respond to that well it's limited strike we're just gonna bomb their buildings blow them up kill a bunch of their people that's it limited yeah I think his words were accurate yeah that's what I want that totally oh yeah yeah we're just gonna limit its limited strike you know imagine Madagascar Limited struck in San Francisco they take out a couple blocks that kill a thousand people limited strike oh yeah we would never talk that way if the threat was coming towards us I know it's absurd it was an active warfare he's completely correct in that I'm glad that he pointed that out I it's fascinating that dude the question was asked in that way yeah I mean yeah I don't want to get to on what's her name Margaret Brennan I don't get to in her it might be that she's just like it's a devil's advocate thing well is limited strike I don't know that she necessarily believes that but it's not directly clear that she doesn't but I do think that that casual way of talking about American foreign policy it's just sort of expected in all the conversation about the drone being shot down is yeah we're gonna have drones everywhere weird have bases everywhere we're gonna ships everywhere planes gonna be flying all over the place it's just sort of expected it's so casual we'll have our military everywhere if anybody looks at us wrong we get to duel in it strikes and kill their people it's not warfare after all what is a war we don't declare war we haven't for decades and decades and I think that that sort of casual way of talking about it about describing it as just limited strikes and not only makes it easier for the president to justify doing it but it gets people like lulled into a false sense of security I agree I think that it you should do anything to minimize what is war okay yeah I think ompletely agree we have guidelines in the media for how to talk about suicide for instance it's hard to keep it on your head but you should because it's important and there's things like that for mass shooters terrorist attacks and things like that I feel like we need a guideline for war what is the actual accurate moral way to talk about war that does not incline populations or politicians to launch into it right and and some part of that conversation has to include how much money is spent funding all of these actions don't worry Jake Tapper's and ask how you gonna pay for it okay good good space for it exactly yeah and kind of overdue check out the damage report podcast each day wherever you get your podcast whether pocket casts or stitcher or iTunes you can join me as I give you the news and stories you want with a range of co-hosts and interview guests jumping in on the fun each day again that's the damage for wherever get your podcasts and if you get them at iTunes don't forget to rate and review sometimes I'll read them live on the show

  1. What do you think of Bernie's response to Margaret Brennan's question? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

  2. I don't think they see civilians in Iran as actual people. There are people out there who, make shoes. Are green grocers. Fix cars. I don't know what. And their "limited strikes" are going to kill these ordniary people who have no responsibility for anything. And that's even if Iran's at fault here, which is highly unlikely, that drone was in Iranian waters. So to bandy about a term like "limited strike" casually is reprehensible.

  3. If one country makes some limited strike on New York or Houston, i am pretty sure the USA would call that terrorism.

  4. Brooke needs to not be on this show. Seriously, shes never on the progressive side and spouts right wing talking points frequently.

  5. Brooke would rather have a Female Warmonger killing Babies than another White Guy. Identity Politics is a CANCER. And thats why the Dem Establishment Loves it.

  6. There's only three countries that don't have a World Bank. Iraq and Afghanistan did not have a World Bank before the war created by 9/11. Another Rothschild World Bank backed War.

  7. You could tell Brooke was offended by the tone that Bernie took, simply because it was a woman he was directing it to.

  8. He loses his patience with all that shit, And he does not have to be "polite" about it. The journalist should have thought it over, not just repeating these hawkish talking points. Well done Mr Sanders!

  9. "Bernie tone"??? OFFS, the world is near extinction through war or an uninhabitable planet, and this moron is concerned about 'tone'? Bernie should be taking a stick with him and beating those idiots when they ask stupid questions … his 'tone' is NOT THE FUCKING ISSUES DUMB ASS!!

  10. I find it fascinating how some people watch Bernie talk common sense and think: "This old, senile, crazy, unqualified, communist, socialist jew is going to destroy America MAGAAAA!!!1!"

  11. I see your set has gotten, better. Awesome job guys, we are glad our views are getting you better equipments. That said, John looked way hotter when he was sitting down, I just assumed he was a really buff dude LOOL.

  12. The USS Vincennes has already performed a limited strike on Iran by killing nearly 300 people by shooting down an Iranian airliner in their airspace in 1988 by a trigger happy captain. Swept under the rug for dollars. Who the hell said you guys were supposed to be the world's global cop? Don't your own cops kill enough people in your own nation and somehow it's your sacred duty to inflict more death and destruction on the rest of the world. What gives you the right? Is it because you have more weapons than almost the rest of the world combined? One hundred and thirty-eight Canadian soldiers died in Afghanistan in support or your war there. The first three were killed by a trigger happy American pilot who received the ultimate punishment, he was dishonorably discharged. Your nation since it's inception is literally bathed in blood. We used to trust you. That is disappearing fast.

  13. Bernie my man πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

  14. Sanders is generally overly polite and patient. Which is a really good thing. Yes, he was perhaps snarky here …. I think it's cause all the media have been bunch of dicks this past week and it seems pretty clear that many of them would love a war at this point.

  15. How many "limited strikes" does the US tolerate on their territory until they go to war? Why should Iran be different?

  16. I am so sick of hearing Bernie being mocked for his β€œBernie tone”, his age, his hair or any other thing. You are right, John, what is important is what he says and stands for. And lady, you should just hope that, when you are in your seventies, you will be living as relevant a life as Bernie is.

  17. THERE SHOULD NEVER BE A GUIDELINE FOR WAR ………………..or for journalism…..be a JOURNALIST!. I had to unlike my like when I heard u say that at the end….dumb.

  18. Sanders is talking out of his ass?

    It not a war, it maybe an act of war but it does not mean a war.

    And Trump did not start this.

    Trump did the right thing for humanitarian reasons.
    Trump is a man of peace and a diplomat.

    If Clinton was in charge with the hawks telling her to bomb, she would have, because she is weak and thinks women should be tough.

  19. Just aiming for a "limited" amount of people. This is not just Trump. This is how the US has always thought.

  20. i love it. we need a president who talks with a sarcastic tone when answering stupid reporters, stupid politicians, and even any typical stupid average joe american.
