EPJ: Lefties and Randettes Stand By Their Men: Damn the Facts[...]Submitted by Neotheone on Sun, 03/10/2013 - 17:50
...most lefties are standing by their man, Obama, and are simply ignoring his policies.
But what about the libertarian Rand Paul cheerleading faction? Are they just going to ignore the below Rand comments made just a few short weeks ago, during Rand's "foreign policy" speech?
McCain’s call for a hundred year occupation does capture some truth: that the West is in for a long, irregular confrontation not with terrorism, which is simply a tactic, but with Radical Islam.[...]Radical Islam is no fleeting fad but a relentless force. Though at times stateless, Radical Islam is also supported by radicalized nations such as Iran.
I have voted for Iranian sanctions in the hope of preventing war and allowing for diplomacy.
Strategic ambiguity is still of value.
What would a foreign policy look like that tried to strike a balance? first, it would have less soldiers stationed overseas and less bases. Instead of large, limitless land wars in multiple theaters, we would target our enemy; strike with lethal force.
