Rand Paul, in an on-the-money WSJ article, correctly advises Americans that “to interventionists like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, we would caution that arming the Islamic rebels in Syria created a haven for the Islamic State. We are lucky Mrs. Clinton didn’t get her way and the Obama administration did not bring about regime change in Syria. That new regime might well be ISIS.”
In terms of foreign policy intervention, Hillary Clinton is in precisely the neocon-centric camp of George Bush and Barack Obama. From Korea through Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, neocon interventionism has proven a failed foreign policy strategy. Americans have a chance this fall to do some house cleaning in Washington. As for the 2016 presidential elections, one candidate easily emerges as a danger for America, Hillary Clinton.
