Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), and Iraq War veteran, is getting blasted from the rabid Democrats of her party because she refuses to blame the alleged chemical attack in Syria on the Bashar Assad regime, which was used to justify President Donald Trump's missile strike on a Syrian airbase.

Like Republican Senator Rand Paul and Representative Thomas Massie, Gabbard is also skeptical of the Syrian government being behind the attack on the town of Khan Shekhoun.

Disgraced former Democrat presidential candidate Howard Dean tweeted, "This is a disgrace.  Gabbard should not be in Congress."

Aren't we glad Dean didn't make it to the White House!

“People of Hawaii’s 2nd District – was it not enough for you that your rep met with a murderous dictator? Will this move you,” tweeted Neera Tanden, close ally of Hillary Clinton and president of Center for American Progress.

Gabbard blasted the Trump administration's strike as being manipulated by "war hawks" and the strike approval given "without care or consideration."

“It angers and saddens me that President Trump has taken the advice of war hawks and escalated our illegal regime change war to overthrow the Syrian government,” she said in a statement. “This escalation is short-sighted and will lead to more dead civilians, more refugees, the strengthening of al-Qaida and other terrorists, and a possible nuclear war between the United States and Russia.”

Gabbard returned from a secret "fact finding" trip to Syria and declared, "There are no moderate rebels in Syria."

"I don't think Assad should be removed," Gabbard said. "If Assad is removed and overthrown, ISIS, al Qaeda, Al Nustra, these Islamic extremist groups will walk straight in and take over all of Syria ... they will be even stronger."

"People said the very same thing about Saddam (Hussein), the very same thing about (Moammar) Gadhafi, the results of those two failed efforts of regime change and the following nation-building have been absolute, not only have they been failures, but they've actually worked to strengthen our enemy," Gabbard added.

She's right, just look at what took place in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Egypt.

We have known this for some time, which begs the question of who the missile strike last week benefits.  Furthermore, we should question who a chemical attack benefits.   It doesn't benefit Assad, that's for sure.  We do know that the missile strike aided the stocks of the company that manufactures them, instantly adding $5 billion to the stock value!

Now, ask yourself these questions and maybe we might get a little closer to the truth about why this is actually going on.
