Rand Paul: We Should Leave Assad Alone Because He’s Only Killing Muslims
Today’s totally cock-eyed opinions on Syria come from one of the true Republican weirdos in the Senate: Rand Paul: No American Interests in Syria.
According to Aqua Buddha, America has no interests in Syria and we should leave them alone. And besides, Bashar al-Assad is only killing Muslims, so who cares?
I wish I was just exaggerating, but that’s really his “point,” if you can call it that.
“I don’t see American interests involved on either side of this Syrian war. I see [Bashar] Assad, who has protected Christians for a number of decades, and Islamic rebels on the other side who have been attacking Christians,” Paul said.
And by the way, even though America has no reason to care at all about thousands of people killed by sarin gas, because Muslims, Rand Paul still thinks Obama has failed. Because he should have been talking with Russia and China, and then Assad would have been gone already.
Unfortunately, when Sen. Paul expressed this bizarre opinion on Meet the Press, nobody laughed out loud.
“I think the failure of the Obama administration has been we haven’t engaged the Russians enough or the Chinese enough on this,” the Kentucky Republican said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“The Russians have every reason to want to keep their influence in Syria, and I think the only way they do is if there’s a change in government where Assad is gone” but other current members remain, Paul said. “That would also be good for the Christians.” He noted earlier that Assad has protected Christians “for decades.”
The senator went on to say that a failure to do so could result in an Islamic state that could persecute Christians in the country. And Russia, he said, could have an influence on the country if they told the government “no more weapons.”
What the hell is this man talking about? I just can’t even.
