I agree with Rand Paul that we should not intervene militarily in Syria, because its not in defense of our U.S. national security interests, said Cruz during a question-and-answer session following a speech at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.
But, Cruz added, he also agrees with John McCain that if Iran is on the verge of acquiring nuclear weapons that we should intervene militarily to prevent it from acquiring those weapons. Why? Because it is in the vital national security interest of the United States.
And that is reasonable....

(Now there ARE 1,000,000 regrets - but it may be too late.)
McCain verges on adventurism and Paul on isolationism, so that means that Cruz is into realism.
I can live with that.
