Rand Paul Is Single-handedly Preventing War With Iran

Recommended Posts

A report citing an unnamed aide to President Trump has  suggested that the only reason that the US has not because embroiled in  military conflict with Iran is because Rand Paul has the President’s ear  on foreign policy and is offsetting the parade of war hawk neocons  circling Trump.


 The report, published by Politico, notes that Trump’s national security advisor John Bolton was a staunch proponent of regime change in Iran, as was Secretary of State Mike Pompeoand Secretary of Defense James Mattis.
 All three have embraced the neocon position of preventive military action, but now have allstated publicly that the US will not seek regime change in Iran.

The Politico report suggests that this is all down to Rand Paul.
 “While Trump tolerates his hawkish advisers, the [Trump] aide added,  he shares a real bond with Paul: ‘He actually at gut level has the same  instincts as Rand Paul…’.”
 The report further notes that “Trump has stopped short of calling for  regime change even though Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Secretary of  Defense James Mattis, and Bolton support it, aligning with Paul instead,  according to a GOP foreign policy expert in frequent contact with the  White House.”
 The source indicates that “’Rand Paul has persuaded the president  that we are not for regime change in Iran… because adopting that  position would instigate another war in the Middle East.”
 The source also claims that Rand Paul and Trump share a common enjoyment of poking fun at the war hawks.
 “The Kentucky senator and the commander-in-chief have bonded over a  shared delight in thumbing their noses at experts the president likes to  deride as ‘foreign policy eggheads,’ including those who work in his  own administration.” the report states.
 Last week Paul led a diplomatic trip to Russia, to deliver a letter from Trump to Vladimir Putin’s administration.
I was honored to deliver a letter from President  Trump to President Vladimir Putin’s administration. The letter  emphasized the importance of further engagement in various areas  including countering terrorism, enhancing legislative dialogue and  resuming cultural exchanges.

Yeah at gut level trump and rand are the same - they both were raised by outright racist dads so no surprise.
