Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard inspires many Americans with her peacemaking rhetoric, but some skeptics fear that she’s nothing more than another Obama. Many disgruntled Americans applauded the native Samoan’s promise to “end regime change wars” if she wins the 2020 election, and given the Hawaiian congressional representative’s previous deployment in Iraq as part of the National Guard, a lot of people think that she’s sincere with her pledge after seeing the terrors of war firsthand. Part of her appeal is also that she’s considered to be something of a “renegade” – but can deliver on behalf of the genuine aspirations of millions and antiwar activists and a growing non-interventionist movement – which has gone global?
