Ted Cruz on Syria: US military doesn’t exist to be a policeman for the worldSubmitted by OWO on Wed, 08/28/2013 - 12:06
Cruz addressed the situation in Syria by asserting that the U.S. should only act in its national security interests.
The moral outrage expressed by Secretary of State John Kerry, Cruz suggested, was not enough to launch a military attack against Syria.
“The United States Armed Forces doesn’t exist to be a policeman for the world and I certainly hope the reaction isn’t lobbing some cruise missiles in to disagree with Assad’s murderous actions,” he said.
Cruz also asserted that Obama and Kerry should go the U.S. Congress to make the case for military action.
