It would appear the conflict in Syria is quickly escalating into a proxy war. The U.S. is now funding armed militants to fight Assad and ISIS while Russia gives weapons and equipment to Assad to fight U.S. backed fighters as well as ISIS. It's a goat rope of epic proportions.
But that hasn't stopped presidential hopeful Marco Rubio from advocating for greater U.S. involvement. But this time he went "full monty" on us.
In an interview on CNBC, he suggested the U.S. institute a "no fly zone" or what he referred to as a "safe zone" that would be protected by U.S. airpower. When pressed on the risk that Russia would challenge the NFZ Rubio assured the host that Russia would not, but if they did..."We would have a problem".
Do you think so Rubio? Do you? It's this kind of total ignorance and ineptitude our would-be leaders showcase on almost a daily basis that gives me pause. It's scary to think he might one day control the greatest Army on earth.
