Sanders: U.S. Should ‘Demand’ Mideast Nations Act on Syria

“Wrong” to expect U.S. alone to deal with Syria; need regional force willing to take on ISIL and destroy that “barbaric organization,” Democratic presidential candidate and Sen. Bernie Sanders tells MSNBC.

  • Saudi Arabia has world’s 3rd largest military budget and U.S. restored Kuwaiti royal family to power in 1st Iraq war, Sanders says; U.S. should work with Saudi Arabia, Russia and Iran because all share interest in opposing ISIL: Sanders
  • Sanders says he would make abolishing ISIL and getting rid of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad a “major” priority
  • President Obama is doing “good job” trying to sort through complexity of Syria/Mideast situation and working to prevent further American deaths: Sanders
