    Rand Paul: ISIS 'Exists And Grows Stronger' Because Of GOP Hawks

    Paul, who is running for president, has worked to push back against the characterization that he is an isolationist and weak on foreign policy. On Wednesday, Paul said that those who said his kind of foreign policy was responsible for the rise of ISIS were wrong.

    "I would say it's exactly the opposite. ISIS exists and grew stronger because of the hawks in our party who gave arms indiscriminately."

    Love him or hate him, he speaks a lot of truth regarding ISIS. But this truth will be really expensive for him. He is finished as a Republican, I guess. They think they can easily impose control on Iraq and Syria and mould them forcefully into our image. Failed, oops!

    Love the narrative.

    That America hating Islamo-Fascist were non existent prior to the Iraq Resolution and poor Obama is being blamed for something he didn't do.

    Its nonsense, but its still funny.

    Correction -- he speaks as an ideologue.

    To say Isis "exists" because of GOP hawks is a gross exaggeration. Nobody in our country created the ideology that motivates them, or is responsible for the massive inbreeding that has resulted in clan loyalty above all. Isis is born of a culture very different than ours and to state that our country is responsible for their very existence is ridiculous.

    If he wanted to claim that our actions contributed towards creating the conditions in which they thrive, then he would have a very valid point. We removed the strong man that kept their crap in check. We didn't create them, though, as they created themselves.

    Strawmen all over the place. The ideology of the Islamic extremist has no doubt exited since before America existed. Rand Paul wasn't saying that hawks in his own party created the ideology, but rather pursued policies that the extremists were the beneficiary of, and have done a grand job of exploiting. When I heard this yesterday I knew the cliff hanging right fringe would throw Paul under the bus.

    They did NOT create Daesh.

    They just validate, strengthen, and confirm the narrative Daesh is using to recruit people.
    I may be wrong.

    Queue the right labeling Rand Paul as a R.I.N.O in 3...2....1

    Pretty sure that's not what he was saying, but if intellectual dishonesty is the only way you can make an argument, then so be it.

    He has no T.Cruz' charisma, no Rubio's speech rate, but at least he speaks something I believe.
