Oh, how quickly we forget!

Do you want Rand Paul to say, "since this is an unjustified war I think we should help the enemies fight us and fund them with weapons against our troops while we cut aid to Israel first because they are not wishing our evil government any harm"????.

Yes, that's exactly what i had in mind. /eyeroll

What should he say? How about this:

My friends, you don’t need to do nation building in Israel. We’re already built. You don’t need to export democracy to Israel. We’ve already got it. You don’t need to send American troops to defend Israel. We defend ourselves."

~ Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,
May 2011 before the U.S. Congress

How would that be to the neocons for a reminder? Oh, how quickly we forget!

Again, what about AIPAC? Our foreign policy is a huge part of what is destroying this nation, and Israel is at the very center of our foreign policy. How many politicians have stated "I stand with Israel". Now how many have said "I will stand with America"?

If that's not Rand's angle then so be it, but I can't get behind it. Between this and the Iranian sanctions, I'm having a hard time swallowing the Rand Pill. Maybe he isn't interested in attempting a 180 on FP, which is understandable, but it's a step backward from my POV.

If others are okay with it or see it as "playing chess" or whatever then I don't really care.
