Tulsi Gabbard exposes the absurdity and hypocrisy of the US policy on Syria

She also spoke about Trump's fail to fulfill promise about a new bill that would put an end to the Wall Street impunity, while, instead, he did the opposite: he made a step further to deregulate it.


TYT Politics Producer Emma Vigeland spoke with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) about her recent trip to Syria, where she met with Syrian President Bashar al Assad, along with many Syrian civilians. Her trip has been maligned by the mainstream press and establishment Democrats, while those who favor an anti-interventionist foreign policy have praised her.

Gabbard spoke again about the need of the US to stop this madness of supporting the terrorist groups in Syria:

This support that the US government has been providing directly and indirectly to these armed groups working with Al-Qaeda or indirectly, by sending that support through countries like Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar who are also supporting these terrorist groups, is counterproductive to the national security interests of the US. It is counterproductive and worsening the suffering of the Syrian people and it's something that we've got to bring an end to.

The way to stop this war, the best way to create a path toward peace is:

1) Stop providing arms, money, support to these groups that are working and directly allied with Al-Qaeda, ISIS and other terrorist groups.

2) Focus on actually defeating these terrorist groups that are destroying the Syrian people and their lives and that do pose a direct threat to the US.

3) Engage with the Syrian government, engage with those who, whether we like it or not, have a direct stake in serious future. Engage with Assad without pre-conditions. Allow the Syrian people to determine their own future for themselves.

She also highlighted the absurdity and hypocrisy of the US policy on Syria through the fact that by arming terrorists, the US and its allies in the Middle East are destroying a highly secular society in which religion was not the top priority among the people, and therefore, was not a barrier that could prevent them live in harmony and peace. The pretext for the US proxy-war in Syria was again the known scenario of another "brutal dictator" that had to be overthrown. Yet, they supported the most brutal terrorists, along with the most brutal regime, that of Saudi Arabia, destroying a secular society! Absurdity and hypocrisy indeed:

       The Syrian people who I met with from all different walks of life, are asking us to stop supporting these terrorist groups who have kidnapped and murdered their family members, who have raped and tortured their kids, who have shut down their schools in their country and who have caused such great devastation. They want to be able to determine the future of Syria for themselves. A future that is secular and allows the same kind of freedom of religion that they have experienced now for generations.

       People who I heard from, they almost felt ashamed and apologized for even mentioning their religion. This is something, they said, we never had to do : 'my best friend, or my next-door neighbor is Christian and I'm Muslim', that was never part of anyone's conversation until this war began, where you have these armed militants that are being funded by outside countries, the US, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and others, who allied and partnered with Al-Qaeda and ISIS and groups like them, who are the exact opposite of this non-sectarian society to the extreme, where if you don't convert to their ideology, they will kill you.

She also spoke about the impact of the sanctions on people's lives:

       One of the other things that was very striking to me and frankly that I was surprised by, was the effect and impact of the embargoes and sanctions on Syria. This is something that put in place by our government, supposedly to punish the Syrian government, but the impact is really felt most directly in a very harsh and destructive way by the Syrian people themselves.

Finally, she also spoke about Trump's fail to fulfill promise about a new bill that would put an end to the Wall Street impunity, while, instead, he did the opposite: he made a step further to deregulate it:

       On the campaign trail I believe Trump said that he would reinstate Glass–Steagall, yet we've seen a recent executive order asking Treasury for a plan on how to deregulate Wall Street, so I'm very concerned about this because this is an issue that impacts communities like mine and Hawaii and people and families all across country.

       The problem with Dodd–Frank was not that it did too much, it did too little. The big banks that were Too Big to Fail back in 2008 are even bigger and more powerful today than they were back then, and as you know, no one has been held accountable for the devastation that they've caused in people's everyday lives. The homes that were lost, the lives and retirements that were destroyed. So, we have a bipartisan bill called the Return to Prudent Banking Act, that would essentially reinstate 21st century Glass–Steagall, in order to separate those risky investment banking practices that Wall Street does on the backs of the American people, from basic, everyday commercial banking. This is one of the main things that caused the crisis in 2008. It's a common sense bipartisan measure that we are looking to build more support for and to remind president Trump that on the campaign trail he said he would do this.
