Rand Paul Stands Between US War With Iran

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) wanted to immediately pass the sanctions bill by unanimous consent Tuesday. However, Paul intervened and blocked it, in order to ensure that unauthorized use of military force against Iran does not transpire.

Paul’s one sentence amendment reads: “To clarify that nothing in the Act shall be construed as a declaration of war or an authorization of the use of force against Iran or Syria.”

    For all my dislike of politicians, this man stands for things the others do not even understand. He may go down in history as the man who saved America.

    Whatever, he stands surrounded by self serving intellectual pygmies.
