Democratic candidates debate: How will they bring troops home? Democratic candidates debate: How will they bring troops home?I would have turned out to our troops overseas into America’s longest war in Afghanistan. Us talks with the Taliban or dead, or do the president secret talks at Camp David have been cancelled before they could happen. Many of you have waited on that already, so I want to move past that tonight what all of you have promised on the campaign Trail, many of you on this stage of said, to bring the troops home when your first term others have said in your first-year Senator Warren, we all know the presidency – is much different from the campaign Trail. President Obama, president. What’S the bring the troops home and you have set of Afghanistan, let’s help them Reach a peace settlement. It is time to bring our troops home in your words starting right. Now would you keep that promise to bring the troops home starting right now with no deal with the Taliban and I’ll? Tell you why? What we’re doing right now in Afghanistan is not helping the Safety and Security of the United States. It is not helping the Safety and Security of the world, it is not helping the sapience purity of Afghanistan, we need to bring our troops home and then we need to make a big shift. We cannot ask our military to keep solving problems that cannot be solved. Military we’re not going to bomb our way to a solution in Afghanistan. We need to treat the problem of terrorism as a worldwide problem, and that means we need to be working with all of our out. Our European allies are Canadian allies, our Asian allies, our allies. In Africa, in South America, we need to work together to root out terrorism. It means economic investment, expanding our diplomatic efforts instead of hollowing out the state department and deliberately making us, so we have no eyes and ears in any of these countries, a foreign policy that is about our security and about leading on our value. What if they told you that, would you would listen to the advice I was in Afghanistan with John McCain, the people we did. We talked military leaders, American and local leaders. We talk to people on the ground at the question the same one, I asked what winning looks like tell me what it looks like and what you hear is a lot of time are not problems that can be solved by a military. I have three older brothers. Will understand firsthand the kind of commitment that they will do anything we asked, but we cannot ask them to solve problems that they alone cannot solve. We need to work with the rest of the world. We need to use our economic tools. We need to use our diplomatic tools, we need to build with our allies and we need the whole world safer, not cheap fruits bombing in Afghanistan, Afghanistan, chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who said in recent days, I’m not going to use the word withdrawal right Now it’s our judgment, the Afghan and need support to deal with a level of violence. If he’s not even using the word withdrawal, would you put your promise to bring troops home in the first year on hold the follow? The advice got served under General Dunford Way under General Dunford in Afghanistan, and today September 12th. 2019 means that today you be 18 years old old enough to serve and I’m not going to live on 9-11. We have got to put an end to endless war and the way we do it is see to it that that country will never again be used for an attack against our homeland, and that does not require an open-ended commitment around troops from Afghanistan best way not To be caught up in Endless Wars to avoid starting one in the first, and so when I am president, an authorization for the use of military force will have a built-in three years. Sunset Congress will be required to vote and a president will require be required to go to Congress to seek an authorization, because if our troops can summon the courage to go overseas, the least our members of Congress should be able to do if some of the courage To take vote on whether they ought to be there by the way, we also have a president right now who seems to treat troops as props or Worse tools for his own enrichment. We saw what’s going on with flights apparently being routed through Scotland just so people can stay at his I’ll. Tell you as a military officer. The very first thing that goes through your mind. The first time you ever make eye contact with somebody that you were responsible for in uniform is do not let these men and women down this President is doing exact. I will not thank you because the concerns about any possible vacuum being crated round in Iraq when you were vice president, President Obama turned you to bring the troops home from Iraq. You’Ve said in the campaign Trail quote. I made sure the president turn me and said Joe get our combat troops out of Iraq. There was a major drawdown of US troops and then Isis seized some estimates. 40 % of the territory in Iraq event had to send thousands of troops back in. Was it wrong to pull out of a rock that quickly and did the move actually helped? Isis take hold not with a gun, and I admire my friend for his service, but I’ve been out Afghanistan. I think more than anybody on this report a long time ago that I was opposed to the search in Afghanistan. Whole purpose of going to Afghanistan was to not have a counter-insurgency, meaning that we’re going to put that country together. It cannot be put together. Let me say it again: it will not be put together. It’S three different countries: Tri-County the three provinces and East they’re, not in part of the economies, run it. I will go on and on but here’s the point. The point is that it’s a counter-terrorism strategy. We can prevent the United States from being the victim of Terror out of Afghanistan by providing four bases and sister Pakistani provide Bakers, 4th and the move against what we know. We don’t need those troops there. I would bring them home and Joe dumper to find guy, but this internal organ we’ve had for 8 years. With regard to the fact you know, I should have never voted to give Bush Authority Memphis design. He said to go in and get the security Council to vote 15 enough into allowed. Inspectors are going to determine whether or not anything was being done with chemical weapons or nuclear weapons, and when that happened he went ahead and went any without any of that proof. I said something that was not meant the way I said it. I said from that point on what island was argued against in the beginning front, once he started with the troops in was that in fact we’re doing it the wrong way there was no play. We should not be engaged, we didn’t have the people with us, we didn’t have our line, we didn’t have allies with its etcetera, and it was later when we’ve came to in the office to Brock turn to president turn them into Joe. When they said, we got a plan to get out the whole security Saint Joe organized get the troops home. My son spent a year in Iraq and I understand is made and we were right to get the combat troops out. The big mistake that was made, which we predicted was that you would not have a circumstance where the shear and the Kurds would work together to keep Isis from coming from moving in. He saw in a rock when the truth came out. Isis field that vacuum. What do you make of people out there who are worried that if we pull out US troops too quickly from Afghanistan, it will create Safe Haven all over again, like the platters of 9/11? Vice president said, you talked about the big mistake in Iraq surge. The truth is Bush said about voted against the war in Iraq and helped lead the opposition and it’s safe to say in the area. If we went into that wall to pick up a pizza, we cannot express our gratitude on the line to defend, defend Ox responded to the Call of Duty. Also, I am the only person up here to have voted against all three of Trumps. I don’t think we have to spend 750 billion dollars a year on the military when we don’t even know who bring this world together. Bring us together on climate change, bring it together in fighting against terrorism and make it clear that we work to help countries around the world rebuild, are struggling economy and do everything that we can to rid the world of terrorism but dropping bombs on Afghanistan and Iraq. What’S not the way to do it Senator Sanders? Thank you I want to take this to mr. Yang. You share the stages. You know when we talked about troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, with the vice president, who was in The Situation. Room with senators are on the Senate armed services, the Foreign Relations Committee, with an Afghanistan veteran who is on the stage tonight with these candidates. What makes you the most qualified on this stage to be commander-in-chief Conflict for 18 years was not what the American people want. We have to start owning what we can and can’t do we’re not very good at rebuilding countries. And if you want proof, all you have to do is look within our own country of Puerto Rico. Dollars to unclear benefits, lost thousands of lives and thank you. Service, and the goal has to be to rebuild the relationships that are made America strong for decades. I would lead Armed Forces with r and judgment what the American people want is simply a president who has the right values and point of view, and they can trust to make the right decisions when it comes to putting our young men and women into Harm’s Way And that’s what I would do as president dang.
