Rand Paul Blasts Neocon Liz Cheney for Urging President Trump to Keep Troops in Afghanistan

Paul is standing for Trump’s “America First” foreign policy.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is standing up for President Donald Trump’s “America First” foreign policy against neocons in the Republican Party who desire to go back to the George W. Bush era.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), daughter of former Vice President and Iraq War architect Dick Cheney, made an appearance on Fox News’ “The Daily Briefing” on Tuesday where she argued for Trump to keep troops in Afghanistan.

“We know what happens when we walk away,” she said. “We are now in a situation where we’ve got a sufficient number of troops on the ground to prevent safe havens and people have got to remember that Afghanistan is a place from which the terrorists planned and plotted and trained and attacked us on 9/11 — We cannot let that happen again.”

Cheney’s words come shortly after the release of the Afghanistan Papers, which showed that bureaucrats in Washington D.C. deliberately misled the public about progress in the mountainous arid nation commonly referred to as the “graveyard of empires” to do public relations for the war operation.

Even though it is now widely understood that top military officials see no chance at victory in Afghanistan, Cheney wants troops to remain over there to continue spilling their blood needlessly. Paul finds this to be completely unacceptable.

“I think the Cheneys are unrepentant warmongers. They still won’t admit that the Iraq War was a mistake,” Paul said.

“What they need to realize that when we topple regimes — when we topple strongmen that may not be the best of leaders — what we get is a vacuum and we get more terrorism. So ostensibly, they want to go overseas to fight them over there and to wipe out terrorism, but it turns out we go over there and we end up having chaos when we depose regimes and have no government,” he added.

After all the damage that their policies have caused to America, Paul believes that the Cheneys should quit while they are behind and remove themselves from public life permanently.

“America needs to quit listening to them. They need to fade into obscurity,” he said.

Although President Trump is far from a non-interventionist, his foreign policy mindset is much closer to Paul’s than it is to Cheney’s. He has talked about the futility of the wars in the Middle East on many occasions, and indicated that he wants to bring the troops home.

“You know, we’re in many countries, many, many countries. I–I’m embarrassed to tell you how many. I know the exact number, but I’m embarrassed to say it because it’s so foolish. We’re in countries–we’re protecting countries that don’t even like us. They take advantage of us. They don’t pay; nothing,” Trump said in October.

Neocons like Cheney, by working incessantly to undermine Trump’s foreign policy, do a great disservice to the President’s “America First” agenda.

Pope Francis Prays For Coronavirus Relief in Unprecedented Empty Vatican Audience

The Pope appeared alone.

Published

on

Pope Francis prayed that God would comfort Italy and the world in the midst of the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic, appearing in an unprecedented Vatican audience in Saint Peter’s Square. Papal events at the Vatican are almost always filled with pilgrims and the faithful, but the ceremony overseen by the Pope was entirely empty on account of the strict quarantine imposed on Italy as the nation reels from an unmatched death count from the disease.

Imagery of the event revealed the striking emptiness of the Vatican square, the overcast and rainy weather adding to the solemn nature of the papal event.

May God’s blessing come down upon you as a consoling embrace,”  said the Pope at the event. “Lord, bless the world. Give health to our bodies and comfort our hearts.”

The Pope encouraged prayer from the faithful for those directly involved in the response to the historic health epidemic- healthcare workers, doctors, grocery employees, police and volunteers.

The Pope chose to deliver the traditional ‘Urbi et Orbi’ address at the event, a Vatican tradition that is usually reserved for Christmas and Easter. The prayer implied the likely cancellation of Vatican Easter proceedings, with the devastation caused by the coronavirus in Italy likely precluding any major gatherings within the coming months, at least. Reports indicate that the Pope will celebrate traditional Good Friday and Easter Sunday masses, but alone, in a manner similar to Friday’s papal appearance.

Catholic Sunday Masses have been entirely cancelled in Italy, a nearly entirely unprecedented development that speaks to the gravity of the situation in the disease-stricken country. The nation had its worst day in terms of casualties on Friday, with deaths rising to 9,134, with a total national count of almost 87,000.
