Paul Says the GOP Hawks Armed and Created ISIS

isisPresidential candidate Rand Paul lays the blame for the rise of the Islamic State ISIS on his own party.  He said, “ISIS exists and grew stronger because of the hawks in our party who gave arms indiscriminately,” Paul said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” He continued: “They created these people. ISIS is all over Libya because these same hawks in my party loved – they loved Hillary Clinton’s war in Libya. They just wanted more of it.”
Much like his dad, Rand Paul favors a dramatic reduction in U.S. money to foreign governments and less military intervention into foreign affairs.
Paul is correct, ISIS is made up of the remnants of Saddam Hussein’s old Baath regime and they have seized U.S. military equipment from the Iraq War. The GOP argues that it was the Obama administration that pulled out the needed security forces in Iraq. Paul believes that leaving security forces is equivalent to a perpetual war in Iraq.
“Everything that they have talked about in foreign policy, they have been wrong about for 20 years, and yet they have somehow the gall to keep saying and pointing fingers otherwise,” Paul said.

    Rand Paul is not a Republican. Blaming ISIS on Republicans? Do you work for Obama?

    Actually, Rand is the most Republican and most conservative in the race. That is, Thomas, if you understand what a true republican is, which, judging by your comment, you may not. He is factually the most fiscally conservative and a defender of the entire Bill of Rights (you should read that sometime).

    Obama, Dems, and RINOs both supported the Syrian intervention, and many of the rebels (and our weapons) ended up with ISIS. Question is then, do you support Obama’s foreign policies of intervention and chaos, Thomas? Do you care about the truth?

    Many people who think they’re Republican are really big govt Statists like the Dems – they just haven’t figured that out yet.

    Go Rand!

    Iya – I see that Obama reported rklmreabae campaign donations for this past quarter. His support is strong. Can we turn it into a victory at the polls. That is the question. I found it amusing that news stories are now being run on whether or not Hillary “peaked” too soon.
