    I don't like many of Paul's positions. But I fail to see how he is being a 'hypocrite' in this situation.

    Any time you feel like destroying my points of variable fact, by all means "Bring It On" as blunderboy Bush would say. Until then, Rand Paul is an etch-a-sketch flip-flopping evolver playing crass politics while his President is actually working on foreign soil .

    Except you have no accurate points. Only lies and misconceptions.

    Many of these libertarians were convinced that paul wasn't a "republocrat". I guess not.

    I believe that using our air force to bomb ISIS into oblivion is a good enough strategy.

    It shouldn't be too hard for you to show all of us what a liar I am then.
    Do back up your statement of my lies and misconceptions with no discussion of the actual thread .

    Meanwhile, Paul has spent his entire 6-week vacation trashing Hillary Clinton for being a warhawk.

    How does this bellicose rhetoric not make him the ultimate warhawk,
    and a damned dangerous one at that since he's such a flip-flopper .

    Next Era, and you yourself may be right if you actually had knowledge that I didn't support Canadian troops being used in this endeavour. You assume falsely. I supported Canadian troops being deployed in Afghanistan. I supported Canadian troops being used in Iraq, even though my government at the time didn't - I was pleased, however, that even though the Canadian Liberal government at the time publicly said they wouldn't be involved, behind the scenes they were actively involved in the Persian Gulf. I supported Canadian troops being used against Libya. And I now support Canadian troops being used in Iraq and Ukraine.

    The difference perhaps between you and I is that my country and government doesn't stick its nose in other country's affairs unless asked to help and when asked we seldom if ever refuse to assist. There isn't a single war in my lifetime that Canada precipitated, but we don't shirk our moral obligation to help those who need it. It's probably why Canada is one of the most respected countries in the world and perhaps why many Americans, when traveling abroad, will wear a Canadian flag pin to avoid trouble.
