Rand Paul Op-ed: Marco Rubio Wants ‘Illegal, Unending War’

rubio paulRepublican presidential candidate Rand Paul took aim at GOP rival Marco Rubio in an op-ed for TIME Magazine Monday, comparing him to Hillary Clinton and claiming he wanted to wage illegal wars.

“The Clinton/Rubio foreign policy calls for a no-fly zone over Syria in airspace in which Russia already flies — a recipe for confrontation,” Paul argues in the op-ed, entitled “Marco Rubio Wants Illegal, Unending War.” “We shouldn’t be surprised since the Clinton/Rubio foreign policy also called for admitting Georgia to NATO at a time when Russia already had her tentacles in Georgia — an invitation to war with Russia.”

“When I forced the Foreign Relations Committee to debate an authorization of military force against ISIS, Senator Rubio and McCain insisted that the new authorization be unlimited temporally or geographically. Basically, they want a war without end against an undefined enemy in an unspecified region of the world,” he continues.

“As we enter into the season of determining the next Commander in Chief, I hope voters will seek out a leader who will learn from history and not pursue a reckless policy that seeks to liberate the world but in reality traps us under a mountain of debt and beguiles us into perpetual war.”
