Bernie Sanders was also against the 1991 Gulf War

And was proud of it, too:

I think historically, in too many instances the United States has gone to war, often unilaterally, when we should not, Sanders said. I think my vote against the first war in the Gulf region was the right vote I think we could have gotten Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait in a way that did not require a war, and I think certainly--

At this point, anchor Martha Raddatz felt obligated to interrupt the kumbaya talk.

Even though he had invaded Kuwait?

But the point was you had the whole world united against him, Martha, Sanders snapped. Do we need to go to war in every instance, or can we bring pressure of sanctions and international pressure to resolve these conflicts?

Hey Bern -- please define "too many times." And as for "unilaterally," I'm thinkin' "OK, Vietnam, but then ... ??"

No, George W. Bush did not go to war unilaterally in 2003.
Korea was not a unilateral venture.
Grenada doesn't even remotely qualify as a "war."

Help us out here, Bern.

"But the point was you had the whole world united against him, Martha"

Actually, Bernie, the point is that you were going on an anti-war spiel and then you tried to backpedal from your Gulf War comments after Martha pointed out to all concerned how Saddam caused it by invading Kuwait. Incidentally, note how Bernie complains about "unilateral actions" but voted against an operation that even he says the whole world was united on.

Y'know, I wouldn't take this kinda talk seriously in general, but I really don't need a lecture from a guy that can't even stop the #BlackLivesMatters crowd from hijacking his campaign events.

"Help us out here, Bern."

Maybe he's talking about Obama's various misadventures in the Middle East. I seem to recall far fewer nations getting directly involved (not to mention Congress not being consulted on any of it).
