Even peers and colleagues in their own parties do not agree all the time. That might explain while Senator Rand Paul fired off at Senator Lindsey Graham over comments made about the North Korean summit.
Rand Paul disagrees with Grahams opinion that military force should be used in the event that President Trump can't reach a peaceful deal with North Korea in regards to their possession of nuclear weapons.
As reported by washingtonexaminer.com
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said that his colleague, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is a “danger to the country” for urging that military force be used against North Korea if President Trump is unable to reach an agreement with the rogue regime’s leader Kim Jong Un about denuclearizing the Korean peninsula.
Paul said he would not vote for an Authorization for the Use of Military Force against North Korea as Graham had called for over the weekend, just before Trump’s meeting on Tuesday with Kim in Singapore.
“Lindsey Graham is a danger to the country by even proposing ideas like authorizing war with Korea, my goodness,” Paul said in an interview Monday with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “So that should be something that is seen as naive and seen as something that really serious people shouldn't even really be discussing.”
When asked to elaborate, Paul said that Graham’s world view that “war is always the answer” has prompted the U.S. to become involved with conflicts “where it’s not really clear what the American interests is in those wars.”
“I think sometimes the reaction to our involvement in those wars has actually been worse than had we not been involved at all,” Paul said.
Rand Paul has stood as more of a moderate Republican on various issues, where Graham seems to be more old school conservative. This has also caused disagreements on different issues when it comes to the position President Trump happens to be taking. With everyone being on the same side, there needs to be some sort of middle ground reached, without the name calling and attacks. The liberal media thrives off of those inner conflicts, and exploits them for their own advantage.
Where do you stand with the issue? Is military force a viable option in case the peace talks fail? Leave us a comment and let us know.
