The fact is that Warren, while very strongly progressive on domestic policy, is weak on foreign policy. When she has addressed foreign policy in the past, she comes across as a hawk, very much like Hillary and other major women politicians over the years, both here and abroad. This appears to be an attempt to counteract the pervasive (though unfounded) notion that women are not as tough as men and, therefore, would render us weak in the international arena. Tulsi Gabbard is the notable exception to this general rule, since she has been in combat – even been awarded for bravery during her service – and has nothing to prove in this regard. Instead of looking for more wars in which to embroil our country, she is combating the US’ hunger for imperialistic, regime change wars, and is taking a tremendous amount of heat for it.
I’m afraid that Warren cannot be trusted to resist the enormous pressure by the military industrial complex and the Israel lobby, to drag us into yet another war, including one with Iran. Until I see or hear otherwise, I’d be a bit suspicious of the other women candidates’ ability to resist such pressure as well.
