Remember when Sen. Rand Paul told the truth about the creation of ISIS and more:
Sen. Rand Paul criticized some of his Republican colleagues Wednesday for policies that may have strengthened radical Islamists. “ISIS exists and grew stronger because of the hawks in our party, who gave arms indiscriminately, and most of those arms were snatched up by ISIS.”-MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
Career politician and foreign policy novice (he’s desperately trying to catch-up) Scott Walker disagreed. Walker doesn’t just want to be president, he wants to be the supreme leader of the world, putting every other nation on notice. That it’s either his way, or boots on the ground war.
The Hill: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) argued Thursday that Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was mistaken for saying Republicans had helped create the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). “I just respectfully disagree with Senator Paul. And I believe the reason that we’re facing troubles, and not only in that region of the world, is because of the lack of American leadership. And that certainly doesn’t mean looking around for who to blame…
...and then Walker went on to blame…
“...people who are friends or foes looking around and seeing an absence under this president, and not just under the Obama doctrine but largely under the Obama-Clinton doctrine.”
Knowing what we know now about Putin and Iran's leadership, it’s pretty clear we would have to be at war right now if Walker had his way:
“When you see it not just in Syria, not just on Iraq; you see it with our going down the path towards a supposed agreement with Iran, you see it with Putin creeping into the Ukraine, you see it with islands of sand being built in the South China Sea,” Walker said.
George H. W. Bush is the basis for the US "troubles," in the ME and especially Iraqi which has expanded into the mess we are in now.ReplyDelete
Republicans attempting to re-write history of US involvement in the ME is hitting the right-wing news outlets already in anticipation of 2016 elections as explained in this Tom's Dispatch piece.
