Monday on CNN’s AC360, White House contender Bernie Sanders declared that the fatal U.S. airstrike on Iranian terror chief Qasem Soleimani violated international law and could unleash “anarchy.”
“I think it was in violation of international law. This guy was a bad news guy, but he was a ranking official of the Iranian government,” Sanders said. “And you know what? Once you get into violating international law in that sense, you can say there are a lot of bad people all over the world running governments… But once you start this business of a major country saying, hey, we have the right to assassinate, then you’re unleashing international anarchy.”
“Then, if China does that, if Russia does that, you know, Russia has been implicated under Putin with assassinating dissidents. So, once you’re in the business of assassination, you unleash some very, very terrible forces,” he added.
Newsflash: Iran was already a very, very terrible force in the business of sowing terror and discord worldwide.
