Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi blamed President Trump for Iranian missile launches against U.S. bases in Iraq on Tuesday evening, and suggested that America was unwilling and unable to fight back.
In a posted evening, In the wake of reports on Tuesday that over a dozen missiles fired from Iran had hit bases in Iraq where U.S. troops are housed, Pelosi tweeted that the Trump administration was guilty of “needless provocations” and declared that America “cannot afford war” with Iran.
“Closely monitoring the situation following bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq. We must ensure the safety of our servicemembers, including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding that Iran cease its violence. America & world cannot afford war.”
For a high United States official to declare publicly, while our forces are under attack, that we cannot afford war, is quite simply aiding and abetting the enemy. There’s a word for someone who does that.
