wants to be our president
Logically, Iraqi refugees shouldn’t exist, according to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), because the United States already “won” the Iraq War.
“We accepted 60,000 people from Iraq as refugees,” the Kentucky GOPer said. “What I don’t get about it is, I thought asylum would be when you lost the war. We won the Iraq War! We put in place a democratic government. Why would there be any people seeking asylum from Iraq after the war?”
Sen. Rand Paul, noted foreign policy gadfly, does not understand why anyone would be fleeing Iraq right now.
A presidential contender.
An omnipresent voice on the news shows.
Does not understand what might be happening in Iraq, after our overwhelming victory and success in installing a pro-American democratic regime, that would cause any of its residents to be fleeing the nation and seeking asylum elsewhere.
