Assassination? Bloomberg Says No, Rand Paul and Bernie Say Yes
Bloomberg vs Sanders
Michael Bloomberg is defending Trump. With that, I suggest Bloomberg's slim chances of winning the Democratic nomination just got slimmer.
Rand Paul on the Death of Diplomacy
Rand Paul: “The question is will there be more or less of the attacks. So what happens with his death is we’re sending thousands of more troops, which are thousands of more targets for them to shoot at, and I think that it is hard to imagine that the Iranians are going to shrink now and say, ‘Oh, you killed our leading general who’s been a leader in our country for 20 years, but we’re going to do nothing?’ I also think with the death of Soleimani, you have the death of diplomacy. I don’t think there’s any chance that Iran will speak to us again on diplomacy. This is a long way away from where we were after the nuclear deal was signed under President Obama. I wasn’t a fan of details of the deal, but I was a fan of diplomacy, the same way I’ve been a fan of is the president talking to the government or North Korea, even though we haven’t been successful yet. But I do think that all talk is gone now. You cannot kill a major general of another country and expect that they are going to sit down at the table and discuss with you. There’s just no scenario that I see that happening now.”
Without a doubt warmonger fools will point to who's making the statement rather than the accuracy of it.
Rand Paul Stands Up to Trump
Rand Paul on Pompeo
Rand Paul on Senate Democrat Hypocrites
Rand Paul on Heny Clay
Clay’s words still ring true: “A declaration of war is the highest and most awful exercise of sovereignty…such a vast and tremendous power ought not to be confided to the perilous exercise of one single man.”
Rand Paul on Undeclared Wars
"If we are to go to war w/ Iran the Constitution dictates that we declare war. A war without a Congressional declaration is a recipe for feckless intermittent eruptions of violence w/ no clear mission for our soldiers. Our young men and women in the armed services deserve better."
Rand Paul Question of the Day
"The question today is whether the assassination of Soleimani will expand the war to endanger the lives of every American soldier or diplomat in the Middle East?"
Rand Paul for President
I would vote for Rand Paul in a nanosecond.
I side with Rand Paul and Bernie Sanders and said so immediately.
However, the assassination label is not what's important. Rather, it's Trump's blatantly stupid war-perpetuating policies that are important.
Meanwhile, the Left Wing "Liberal Media" Cheers War and Assassinations. The list includes CNN, NBC, CNBC, and USA Today.
