What we learned from Iraq and Afghanistan is that if we are going to fight, we must fight to win. What we learned is that Islamic countries want to kill us no matter what we do to try to free them from hideous dictators. So now we know how the story goes and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is bringing it home to us. Among the many arguments Senator Paul makes is his hesitation to help factions (either side) who are committed to killing Christians. As you know, those factions are all factions in any Islamic country. The video below with Paul and Sean Hannity is powerful.
We do have to fight on occasions, but when we fight we should fight to win, we should fight for an American cause. I can’t see fighting to impose Sharia’h Law in Syria. I also can’t see sending my son to fight with Islamic rebels against Christians. I also can’t see my son going to fight on the same side as al-Qaeda. There are so many ironies and unfortunate muddling nature to this that I can’t see why we should get involved… ~ Rand Paul
