US created ‘jihadist wonderland’ in Syria, Libya and Iraq, claims Senator Rand Paul
Islamabad: United States Senator Rand claims jihadist wonderlands are developing up abroad, and American foreign policy is to blame.
While discussing the escalating crisis in Iraq “On Camera” with CNN host Candy Crowley Senator Rand condemned the notion that the American military should intervene further.
According to the senator, other recent uprisings in the region that prompted a militarized response from the US only made matters worse and further fuelled terrorist activities.
“We went into Libya and we got rid of that terrible Gadhafi. Now it is a jihadist wonderland over there,” Sen. Paul said. “There’s jihadists everywhere.”
“If we were to get rid of Assad, it would be a jihadist wonderland in Syria. It’s now a jihadist wonderland in Iraq, precisely because we got over-involved, not because we had too little involvement, but too much involvement,” Paul added.
