Opinion from a Libertarian ViewPoint

Rand Paul: McCain and Graham are blind to the risks in Syria (opinion) – CNN.com

Recently, I introduced legislation to ensure that no American weapons are given to terrorist groups, especially in Syria. You wouldn’t think we would have to have legislation to prevent our own government from sending arms to terrorists, but there it is.

It is true that the fight against ISIS and the civil war in Syria are connected, but not in the way neocons infer. Overthrowing Assad may actually lead to an Islamist regime that finds common ground with ISIS, not America.

The neocons’ worldview is warped and naïve. Neocons see military action as the first option, and they never look back to view the mayhem that follows.

Be seeing you
