After months and months of criticizing US involvement in ‘forever wars’, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has had a sudden change of mind, tweeting Tuesday that pulling US troops out of Syria could have ‘catastrophic  consequences’.

Trump’s sudden withdrawal from northern Syria & endorsement of Turkey’s actions could have catastrophic consequences & risks laying the ground for immense violence and suffering.

Of course, her only reason for adopting this position now is that she will oppose literally anything President Trump does.

Last year AOC ran for Congress on a promise of working to remove troops from  Syria and elsewhere:

“Alexandria believes that we must end the “forever war” by bringing our troops home, and ending the air strikes that perpetuate the cycle of terrorism throughout the world,” her 2018 campaign website noted.

She has repeatedly criticized ‘endless war’:

Previous gens have used millennials like a credit card: leaving nonstop war, an eroding planet, and education profiteering to fix ourselves.

Now it’s on us. The same officials who got us into this mess aren’t going to get us out.

It’s time to elect a new generation to office. https://twitter.com/ourrevolution/status/962068679339855875

The blueprint for war and regime change is right here.

This is dangerous. Bolton championed wars costing thousands of lost lives – both in American soldiers and innocent people abroad.

The US must transition to humanitarian, diplomacy-led, peace-driven foreign policy. https://twitter.com/nowthisnews/status/977380230758252544

The AUMF set an extremely dangerous precedent, allowing the president to wage war without Congressional approval or oversight.

It’s what got us into Iraq, Afghanistan, and a range of conflicts worldwide that most Americans aren’t even aware of. /1

AbHcStkl_normal FLIP FLOP: AOC Suddenly Thinks Pulling Out Of Syria Is Terrible [your]NEWS

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

@AOC

Congress MUST repeal the AUMF.

It is incredibly destabilizing legislation that erodes our government’s system of checks and balances, and a persistent threat to peace worldwide.

War doesn’t bring peace. Alleviating poverty does. Education does. Representative gov does. /2

Here is the profound danger of what we just did in Syria:

A ‘mad king’ President, with majority disapproval of Americans, just decided to bomb a nation without the Constitutional requirement of Congressional approval.

Democrats who take war money passed the laws allowing that.

Paul Ryan’s project to “balance the budget” was always a ruse to explode the deficit with corporate tax cuts + endless war.

Ryan continues his abdication of economic + moral responsibility with his war in Yemen, curtailing of Congressional power, & imperiling countless children. https://twitter.com/RoKhanna/status/1072861644441702400

@RoKhanna

This is why people hate Congress. @SpeakerRyan is not allowing a vote on my resolution to stop the war in Yemen because many Republicans will vote with us and he will lose the vote. He is disgracing Article 1 of the Constitution, and as a result, more Yemnini children will die. https://twitter.com/connorobrienNH/status/1072680259043188737

I‘m curious if Rep. Vargas will further explain his stance here that it’s unacceptable to even *question* US foreign policy.

Plenty of Dem members have asserted that discussion + debate on this issue is fair and merited. Is this stance a departure from that? https://twitter.com/RepJuanVargas/status/1102636576524374016

@RepJuanVargas

It is disturbing that Rep. Omar continues to perpetuate hurtful anti-Semitic stereotypes that misrepresent our Jewish community. Additionally, questioning support for the U.S.-Israel relationship is unacceptable. (1/2)

I remember a time when it was “unacceptable” to question the Iraq War.

All of Congress was wrong, including both GOP & Dem Party, and led my generation into a disastrous + wrong war that virtually all would come to regret, except for the one member who stood up: Barbara Lee.

Common ground I find with (some) GOP:

– Protecting civil liberties & privacy rights (I believe people shouldn’t be spied on by gov or corporations, incl your phone & habits)
– Holding bad contractors accountable https://twitter.com/geoffpilkington/status/1157469525459103744

Admit it, if Trump were for sending more troops over, you’d come out against that.

I’m no Trump guy, but he’s right to start extricating us from these disastrous interventions abroad. My 17-year-old daughter has never known a time when the US wasn’t in a war with someone.

Meanwhile, some administration officials are already trying to walk back Trump’s withdrawal statements.

An anonymous senior administration official told reporters Monday “the U.S. is not removing its forces from Syria in the face of a Turkish incursion.”

Rather, the president ordered roughly 50 special operations troops in northern Syria to relocate to a different part of the country after he learned that Turkey has planned an offensive against U.S.-backed Kurdish forces in Syria. The official said that offensive had not yet begun.

Furthermore, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper tweeted then deleted the following:
