Sounds like Cruz is working to create the dynamic that would allow us to support our allies, embarrass Obama, and keep military contractors fully employed. It’s a mixed bag, but Rand’s approach sounds naïve. How do you negotiate with Russia when they support one side of a Syrian civil war and, via Obama, we support the other?
Seems to me that Cruz has a much deeper and more sophisticated strategy - looks like Presidential material at this point.
“How do you negotiate with Russia when they support one side of a Syrian civil war and, via Obama, we support the other?”
Well, we can start by cutting off the military aid to AlQaeda.
And by the way, Russia and China will not be embarrassed by votes in the UN. Nobody gives a rat’s a$$ about the votes in the UN.
The American backlash against the strike shows that the base of both parties believe that Obama is on the wrong side. He is the enemy with in, and is being ignored.
Cruz and Christy are cuddling up to Obama. At this point Rand is my man.
