The debates were telling of who would start WWIII. Kasich, Fiorina, Rubio, Christy, Bush, Carson, and Graham from the undercard, all showed their lack of cool head and common sense ability to be commander in chief. They all push a no-fly zone over Syria as though that is an answer to some defeat over ISIS and punishment to Russia. When in reality it is an act of war – welcoming us to WWIII.
Graham started off the undercard debate by apologizing to the Muslim World for Trump, then later he states he would blow the heck out of the Muslims in Syria who like Assad. Well, not quite like that…but Muslims are Muslims. So he basically is apologizing to who for who’s remarks? He needs to apologize to America for his stupidity, shut up and go home.
Kasich was priceless in his regime change in Syria which means toppling another sovereign nation while in the same breath stating he would have never condoned going into Iraq if they had not had weapons of mass destruction. So why is he wanting to topple Assad? But that is nothing compared to his punching Russia in the nose comment.
“And for the Russians, frankly, it’s time that we punched the Russians in the nose. They’ve gotten away with too much in this world, and we need to stand up against them, not just there, but also in Eastern Europe where they threaten some of our most precious allies.”
Where is he getting his information? Who is Russia threatening? Russia did not topple Iraq, we did. They did not topple Libya, we did. They did not fund ISIS to fight as rebels to topple Assad, we did. Russia is stopping the toppling of Ukraine. He is defending. Kasich will start WWIII and never get close enough to poke Putin in the chest, let alone punch him in the nose.
But more interesting is his idea that Iraq needs to be broken up into three parts — Sunni, Shia, and Kurd — because the current arrangement doesn’t work. That is like saying, we need to divide America into religious sections because the current arrangement opposes each others values and beliefs? And if he did that in Iraq, good luck trying to monitor it to keep it that way.
When Chris Christie was asked by Wolf Blitzer if the U.S. imposed a no-fly zone over Syria and a Russian plane invaded that no-fly zone, would he be prepared to shoot it down and risk war with Russia, he quipped back, “Not only would I be prepared to do it, I would do it! A no-fly zone means a no-fly zone, Wolf. That’s what it means. ”
Is anyone else amazed at the audacity of a nation to go into another nation who is not antagonizing them and demand a no-fly zone? Especially when to do so is an act of war.
Christy continued to stick his neck out by saying, “See, maybe — maybe because I’m from New Jersey, I just have this kind of plain language hangup. But I would make very clear — I would not, not talk to Vladimir Putin. In fact, I would talk to Vladimir Putin a lot. But I’d say to him, ‘Listen, Mr. President there’s a no-fly zone in Syria; you fly in, it applies to you.’ And yes, we would shoot down the planes of Russian pilots if in fact they were stupid enough to think that this president was the same feckless weakling that the president we have in the Oval Office is right now.”
Then came Rand Paul to show the folly in Christy’s wisdom. “Well, I think if you’re in favor of World War III, you have your candidate. My goodness, what we want in a leader is someone with judgment, not someone who is so reckless as to stand on the stage and say, ‘Yes I’m jumping up and down; I’m going to shoot down Russian planes.’ Russia already flies in that airspace. It may not be something we’re in love with, the fact that they’re there, but they were invited by Iraq and by Syria to fly in that airspace.”
Rand Paul gets an A+ for understanding the situation. He pointed out that to announce a no-fly zone, is a recipe for World War III and that Hillary had also announced she was for it. Paul added, “We need to confront Russia from a position of strength, but we don’t need to confront Russia from a point of recklessness that would lead to war.” Paul was the other adult in the room, the first one being Trump.
Cruz, hello? He is not for killing any citizens in war. (Who is? But, war is war and citizens do get killed. They are being killed now.) He endorsed Iraq’s carpet bombing in Iraq under Bush and likes the way that went. Cruz said that cleared the way for the ground troops to go in and clean up the rest. He said he would carpet bomb ISSIS. What he didn’t seem to realize is that millions of Iraq citizens were killed in the so-called carpet bombings. Cruz can’t have it both ways. Missiles don’t by pass citizens. That is what war is.
Let’s not forget Carly with her “I know Putin”, and denying that she said she would not talk to him. (We all heard her say she would not at the last debate). “So as commander in chief, I will not speak to him until we’ve set up that no-fly zone; until we’ve gathered our Sunni-Arab allies and begun to deny ISIS territory; until I’ve called the supreme leader of Iran and told him the new deal – new deal. We, the United States of America are going to cut off the money flow, which we can do; which we don’t need anyone’s permission or collaboration to do.”
So, again a recipe for WWIII. But, she had a plan, and she gave it away on the stage.
“And I will not speak to him personally until we’ve rebuilt the 6th fleet a little bit right under his nose; rebuilt the missile defense program in Poland right under his nose; and conducted a few military exercises in the Baltic states.” said Carly so proudly and smug.
Well, while she would do all that right under his nose, I am sure if Putin was watching he was laughing his butt off. She is a 1 percent candidate, who claims to know Putin and have a thing with the Iran Supreme leader and can’t even get any more than 2 percent of the vote, which after the debate went down to zero. Putin is not worried about Fiorina.
