Rand Paul: “Stupidity” Of McCain And His Ilk Prevent Solution In Syria

Senator says bombing will lead to “more death and more refugees”

Senator Rand Paul, who has been vocal in his opposition of the US missile strike on Syria, hit out at advocates of the action, including his long time rival John McCain, this past weekend, equating their support of military action with “stupidity”.

“Anybody who wants to talk to Putin about a political settlement and helping Assad go away, anybody who wants to talk about that, myself include, will be called by the McCains of this world a friend of Vladimir Putin.” Paul explained in a CNN appearance when asked if there was a political solution to the strife.

“So, as long as we have that kind of stupidity involved in the debate it makes it very hard to get to what many thinking people have said, that the answer in Syria is ultimately a political solution,” Paul told host Michael Smerconish.
