Rand Paul is pretty much the only senator backing Trump's Syria decision so far

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is going against the grain.

A number of Paul's GOP colleagues have come out against the White House's decision to pull back troops from Northern Syria, while greenlighting a Turkish invasion of the region. Even President Trump's allies like Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) are calling for a bipartisan rebuke of the plan, especially since they believe it puts Kurdish allies, who are viewed as enemies by Ankara, at risk.

But not Paul. The senator isn't generally afraid to disagree with or criticize Trump, but he has always been a staunch non-interventionist, and was ready to back the president's plan to get U.S. troops out of a foreign war.

  1. Two appropriate passages would appear to be...

    1."Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God."

    2."“Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword."

    No doubt there are countless others but if if there are those who haven't learned after over 18 years of war they will, quite likely, never learn. After all it's other people blood and teasure they spend.

    Y'all have a nice day.

    1. it's other people blood and treasure they spend.
