Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is ratcheting up his condemnation of President Trump's order that lead to the death of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, comparing the killing to Russian President Vladimir Putin "assassinating dissidents."
Sanders, who was one of the first 2020 Democrats to call Trump's airstrike on Soleimani an "assassination," lobbed harsh criticism against the Trump administration for the killing.
"This guy, you know, was, as bad as he was, an official of the Iranian government," Sanders said of Soleimani, in the CNN interview. "And, you unleash -- then, if China does that, you know, if Russia does that, you know, Russia has been implicated under Putin with assassinating dissidents."
He continued, "So, once you're in the business of assassination, you unleash some very, very terrible forces. And, what I'm seeing now in this world as a result of Trump's actions, more and more chaos, more and more instability."
Sanders was one of several prominent liberal figures who criticized Trump for ordering the killing of Soleimani.

You should unleash some terrible forces when you attack an Embassy. Julius Caesar killed most of the men and enslaved everyone else in a tribe that did that. You can bet his embassadors got some real respect after that.
These people are insane. Theyre making George McGovern look like a moderate.
Bernie and the rest of them need to keep up the good work!
Feel the Bern:
” I’m Gonna Bern One Down”
Agreed. This (and other Bernie moments) make me remember this scene in the MASH episode “The General Flipped at Dawn” (with a pre Colonel Potter Harry Morgan in the General Steele role):
Maj. Gen. Bartford Hamilton Steele: “You’re insubordinate!”
Capt. Benjamin Franklin “Hawkeye” Pierce: “Right!”
Maj. Gen. Bartford Hamilton Steele: “You’re insolent!”
Capt. Benjamin Franklin “Hawkeye” Pierce: “Right! And you’re nuts!”
This is just another facet of their bedrock belief: REX LEX or LEX REX.
The king is law IF it involves Biden, Hillary, Obama, Comey, Brennan, Soleimani, etc. You are not to go after those who they consider to be in the line of their perceived royalty.
But they don’t put our POTUS in that category - thus go after PDJTrump in every way possible, even if it means lying about him, framing him, jumping to conclusions, reading his heart/mind (bad motives),...
What in God’s name is wrong with these Dems. Obama assassinates Bin Laden and that’s a good thing. President Trump takes out an even worse critter (if that’s possible) and the Dems say President Trump is a “bad boy”. Insane!!
Exactly what I was thinking! The situations are not alike, of course, but if you object to the government’s killing its political opponents, how can you be pro-Communist?
You would kow BernieIdiot given you would very much like to follow the Marxist Lenin path, you know, like Stalin did.......Putin is nothing, as*hole.
Please let this guy be their nominee. Not only will he be an easy opponent to defeat but, it will expose all the Commie pinkos in this country once and for all.
Hopefully his blood pump blows a gasket.
Bernie has always been an incoherent idiot. He is also a lying hypocrite.
Glad to see the Democrats openly embrace Islamic terrorists.
Won’t be too long before we see them strap on suicide vests.
Then I come to my senses when I think of all of the liberal trash, 4th generation gimmedats and the Woke idiots.
The uneducated masses that are crazier than waltzing pissants
I love it, the Rats siding with terror. Real wise move during an election year morons.
Yesterday they were suggesting he committed a “war crime”.
All these talkers are like art class where everyone looks at same objects and all the indivual’s paintings come out different.
only one true picture is Trump had the guy killed due to his current plannings of, and his recent and cumulative killing and evil toward people.
So basically, the Babylon Bee article about dems flying flags at half staff ISNT satire.
It’s better to let Soleimani live to kill more Amerians, isn’t it Bernie? Can’t believe these commie liberals. They prefer “death to America” I guess.
What dissident massacres and rapes innocent people?
