WATCH: Bernie Sanders “Be Damned” If U.S. Lead ISIS Fight While “Saudi Arabia Laughs All The Way To The Bank”

Progressive rockstar and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (I) used an appearance on CNN to discuss the American attacks on ISIS forces in Syria and Iraq and made the case that the United States should not get “involved in another quagmire in the Middle East,” saying;

“I’m sitting here wondering where Saudi Arabia is, where Kuwait is, where Qatar is – Saudi Arabia is the… 4th largest defense spender in the entire world…  I want to see them get their hands dirty. 

Sanders, who is mulling a presidential run in 2016, stated that the responsibility to dismantle the brutal radical Islamic terrorist organization lies with lies with the Middle East – not with the U.S.;

“I’ll be damned if kids in the state of Vermont — or taxpayers in the state of Vermont – have to defend the royal Saudi family, which is worth hundreds of billions of dollars.”

Sanders then shifted attention to massive wealth inequality in the United States and “the crisis facing working families in America.” When asked if he thought congress would vote on a war resolution for the nations military involvement in the Middle East, Sanders deflected and then pivoted, saying:

“I’ll tell you want I do want to vote on – I want to vote on raising the minimum wage, I want to vote on a massive jobs program… let’s out millions of people back to work rebuilding our infrastructure…”

In closing the segment, Sanders ripped House Speaker John Boehner’s assertion that America needs to have “boots on the ground,” in the Middle East, saying;

“What Boehner is saying basically… people should hear it carefully – is perpetual warfare in the Middle East, billions and billions of dollars of American taxpayer money – the loss of lives – while the Royal kingdom of Saudi Arabia laughs all the way to the bank with their oil money.”
