Rand Paul: http://online.wsj.com/articles/sen-r...war-1403219558

Paul reflects my views exactly on this issue. Stay out of Iraq's civil war.

1. Saying it is Bush's fault ignores the many horrible decisions Obama (and Hillary Clinton) has made in Libya, Egypt, and Syria, leading up to this mess.
2. Saying it is Obama's fault ignores Bush's initial role in the war.
3. We should not be putting any troops in Iraq (Obama has already publicly stated he is sending at least 575 troops).
4. Obama should go through Congress, if not Paul opposes any action.
5. Do not completely rule out airstrikes, but many questions need to be answered first.

It should be noted that Hillary Clinton has went back and forth several times on the Iraq War issue, while also documenting that she would have given more arms to the same Syrian Rebels who are now invading Iraq.
