“I’m not sending my kids or your kids or any American soldiers to fight for stalemate”
July 23, 2013
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul slammed the Obama administration’s “world policeman” outlook on foreign policy and accused the president of intentionally planning to “fight to a stalemate” in Syria in a speech Monday.
Appearing at the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention in Kentucky, Paul condemned the administration’s policy of endless war, and appealed for a more humble approach to oversees affairs.
“For our country’s sake, certainly for our soldiers’ sake — for the sake of every veteran who ever donned a uniform and fought for this country — America’s mission should always be to keep the peace, not police the world,” Paul urged.
“There is no greater priority for the federal government than the defense of the Constitution and the nation,” Paul added. “Yet, sometimes I think our defense is weakened by our overeagerness to be involved in every civil war on the planet.”
The Senator asserted that US military involvement in Egypt, Syria and Libya was not based on “common sense” rationale, and that the nation’s military and civilian leaders now “often don’t think” before they act.
“Last week I was told by the administration, you know what their goal is in Syria? To fight to a stalemate,” Paul told the audience.
“I’ve told them I’m not sending my kids or your kids or any American soldiers to fight for stalemate. When we fight, we fight to win, we fight for American principles, we fight for the American flag and we come home after we win.”
The Senator also voiced great displeasure that the US government was willing to see weapons it is supplying to so called rebels be used against millions of Syrian Christians who oppose the Assad regime anyway.
Describing the situation as “a great irony”, the Senator stated “I, for one, will fight with every ounce of my energy to prevent arms, American arms, that you paid for, from being used against Christians.”
As Infowars reported today, the atrocities against Syrian Christians continue to be carried out by Obama-backed FSA rebels.
Photos have emerged showing the aftermath of an alleged massacre of a Christian village in Syria during which men, women and children were slaughtered and churches desecrated.
