It’s fine to say there is no US interest at stake in a certain situation. It costs nothing to say so. But if you’re gonna do it, then tell us where there IS a US interest at stake.
Five seconds before Flight 10 hit the tower the US didn’t have much interest at stake in Afghanistan. Then, all of a sudden, people in NYC had to choose whether to burn to death or jump 89 stories.
When I hear Rand Paul address all that I’ll have some reason to imagine that a do-nothing foreign policy might work.
Check post 31 above for the reason why we had very little at stake in Afghanistan, even after the planes hit the towers.
True! But you are comparing apples to oranges. You see, those terrorists we chased out of Afghanistan are the opposition to the very regime we are thinking about bombing in Syria.
Why would we want to help them yet again?
