Rand Paul: If We Had Bombed Bashar al-Assad A Year Ago, ISIS Would Own All Of Syria Today


RAND PAUL: There may be no good guys in this war. You have ISIS on one side and Assad on the other. Really, part of the problem is ourselves, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar poured millions of tons of weapons into that civil war. That pushed Assad back and allowed ISIS to grow.

Remember, only a year or two ago, President Obama, Hillary Clinton and many Republicans wanted to bomb Assad.

I think had we done that, ISIS may well now be in control of all Syria. We need to think before we act and understand that intervention doesn't always acheive the intended consequences.
