View Diary: War cheerleader: Paul's big problem on Iraq is that he agrees with Obama (30 comments)

  •  Both Rand Paul and Dick Cheney are dicks (0+ / 0-)

    I think it's a waste of time to argue about which one is a bigger dick. In this case (foreign policy) Rand Paul is right. He doesn't want the U.S. to send troops back to Iraq. So he agrees with Obama. Rand Paul is right (in this case), but he's totally wrong, incredibly so, when he wants to dismantle Obamacare and Social Security and the food stamp program.

    But it's sort of like the regional politics of Iraq. Both ISIS (aka ISIL) and Iran are dicks. ISIS/ISIL is Sunni, Iran is Shiite. They hate each other. And the PM of Iraq, Nouri Al-Maliki is a Shiite. If we fight against ISIS/ISIL and send in bombers or cruise missiles or or whatever against them, Iran will be cheering for us to defeat ISIS/ISIL.

    It's complicated. Sometimes it's hard to know who to cheer for. Or who to cheer against.
