Roots Action co-founder Norman Solomon provides a thoughtful commentary on Bernie Sanders’ foreign policy speech of September 21, 2017. Solomon notes a particular Sanders attribute: he listens to grassroots movements. And now, Sanders is giving full voice to a strong anti-war sentiment among American people — in a way that clearly connects corporate power with militarism.

“Bernie Sanders’ foreign policy address is a major step forward in the effort to challenge the corporate, militarist influences behind U.S. foreign policy, says Roots Action’s Norman Solomon.” ~ The Real News

  • About time the left came back to its roots. Clinton had lost her bearings on these issues, and that’s one reason she lost. Trump sort of alluded to some of these issues, but he doesn’t have neither the moral fibre nor the spine to stay the course. Throughout my travels in the US, was also my experience that the American people were tired and exhausted of military adventurism, notwithstanding that these expeditions are breaking the piggy bank – money that would have been better spent on health, education, infrastructure.
