I hear conservatives criticize Rand Paul’s foreign policy a lot. Some have even called it “scary”.
For the life of me, I can’t understand what is wrong with THIS foreign policy “doctrine”:
1- There should be a stated objective at the outset. It should be directly tied to U.S. national security.
2- We should use overwhelming force to that objective. We should not have rules of engagement that tie the hands of our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines.
3- We should get the heck out … It is not the job of the US military to engage in nation building to turn foreign countries into democratic utopias
Is this foreign policy doctrine “scary” to you? If so, please explain why
