Carlo Muñoz The Washington TimesMay 19, 2019

Several Democratic presidential hopefuls took the the Trump administration to task Sunday over its rhetoric against Iran, saying the White House is leading the U.S. toward another intractable conflict in the Middle East.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent who vied for the party’s presidential nomination in 2016, drew direct parallels between the ongoing call to arms from the White House against Tehran to run-up in Washington to the 2003 Iraq war.

“If Trump wants to go to war in Iran, that will make the war in Iraq look like a cakewalk,” Mr. Sanders said on NBC’s “Meet The Press.” “We’ve got to do everything we can to stop that.”
