BERNIE SANDERS SHOULD SHAPE UP!

                             BERNIE NEEDS TO SHAPE UP!
Why doesn't he operate on the assumption that democratic voters don't support the failed, interventionist foreign policy of the U.S. since Ronald Ray Gun and that Hillary does. He can break that down into small parts: She supports a "no fly zone" in Syria, he doesn't. But most Americans don’t know what a no-fly zone is, because the media doesn't tell us what it is.
Imposing a no-fly zone, [Gen. Martin E. Dempsey] said, would require as many as 70,000 American servicemen to dismantle Syria’s sophisticated antiaircraft system and then impose a 24-hour watch over the country.

That was written before Russia entered the war in September 2015. The total number of U.S. servicemen needed to enforce a no-fly zone is likely now much higher, and the stakes for shooting down a Russian jet, intentionally or not, are much greater than for a Syrian one. Yet none of these inconvenient details are brought up by Bernie, so far as i know.
Hillary has the idea that Russia would “share” a no-fly zone. There’s little reason to believe Russia would sell out their only ally in the Middle East, Syria, and they’re certainly not going to assist the U.S. in bombing this ally’s air defense and warplanes.

A no fly zone is a dumb idea. Hillary has many dumb ideas in the area of foreign/military policy. Bernie needs to expose them all.
