Rand Paul and Ron Paul: No troops to Syria

This is keeping it in the family. The Paul family has a pretty good history concerning noninterventionism and now father and son are speaking out against the latest decision by the Obama administration to put some 50 US boots on the ground in Syria in the battle against ISIS.

Rand Paul 2015 gage skidmorePresidential candidate and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul said Saturday in Iowa that he is not ready to “send our sons and daughters back to a war in Iraq”.  The libertarian leaning Senator said, “The fighting on the ground needs to be done by the people who live there. The Sunnis will have to rise up and say ‘enough is enough.'”

Paul’s father, former Texas Congressman Ron Paul was more fierce in his language against the administrations decision:

I cannot condemn in strong enough terms this ill-advised US military escalation in the Middle East. Whoever concluded that it is a good idea to send US troops into an area already being bombed by Russian military forces should really be relieved of duty.

The fact is, the neocons who run US foreign policy are so determined to pull off their regime change in Syria that they will risk the lives of untold US soldiers and even risk a major war in the region — or even beyond – to escalate a failed policy.
