Marco Rubio — Chickenhawk
Most of the Republican White House contenders — with the exception of Ron Paul — have been clamoring for the U.S. to attack Iran. Now that Marco Rubio is auditioning to be Mitt Romney’s running mate, he’s jumping on the bandwagon too.
Talk about birds of a feather. Combine Mitt Romney’s and Marco Rubio’s military experience and whaddya get? ZERO. I’m guessing the total amount of physical labor ever performed by these two empty suits would also add up to zero.
(And Mitt Romney says he’ll build the Keystone Pipeline all by himself if he has to. ROTFLMAO. “Oohhh, Ann, I had the most awful day at work. I sprained my finger, tore my sleeve, and look, I got mud all over my $1,200 shoes.” But I digress…)
Marco Rubio said today that the United States must “not stand on the sidelines” in the tensions between Iran and Israel:
“Our preferred option since the US became a global leader has been to work with others to achieve our goals. But America has acted unilaterally in the past — and I believe it should continue to do so in the future — when necessity requires.”
“When necessity requires” — isn’t that a redundancy?
“The goal of preventing a dominant Iran is so important that every regional policy we adopt should be crafted with that overriding goal in mind. We should also be preparing our allies, and the world, for the reality that unfortunately, if all else fails, preventing a nuclear Iran may, tragically, require a military solution.”
Why yes, it is just a tad “tragic” when other people’s sons and daughters get torn to shreds in an unnecessary war.
Marco Rubio: either 1) call your recruiter ASAP, or 2) Shut The Fuck Up.
