Cory Booker on War & Peace

 


Direct military intervention in Syria only as last resort

[All four Democratic candidates] agreed the United States shouldn't take any rash actions against Russia for harboring Edward Snowden, but said it should pressure that country against instituting restrictive laws against gays. All four said the United States should be careful in how it deals with Syria, advocating against direct military intervention except as a last resort.

We're spending billions on a war based on unjust pretenses

My concern frankly is that we are putting billions of dollars on a war that we went into on unjust pretenses. And cities like mine who are struggling are actually getting a lot accomplished without the help of Federal programs that have dried up like the COPS program, putting more police officers on the street, like helping protect public housing authorities from crime.
