The overwhelming majority of the people present were against Sander’s support for the
bombing. Even with all his attempts to control the meeting, the people had at him for
more than an hour and a half. He was denounced for his selling out to the Empire and
it’s war machine and for his support for the 9 year old war against Iraq and his active
support for every US intervention since he has been in Congress–Iraq, Somalia,
Haiti, Bosnia, Liberia, Zaire (Congo), Albania, Sudan, Afghanistan and Yugoslavia.
He was further criticized for his refusal to ban or even object to the use of depleted
uranium with it’s long term toxicity in both Iraq and Yugoslavia. Sanders even tried
to escape responsibility for arresting 15 of his constituents in his office one week ago
for the crime of wanting to talk to him without an appointment by blaming those arrested
for their arrest, as if they went out and brought the police in to arrest themselves.
