‘Lunatic/Marco Rubio for President,’ is Rubio’s title for his latest ad

US Politics

Marco Rubio titled this foreign policy ad, we didn’t:

TV Ad: Lunatic | Marco Rubio for President

Here’s the ad, complete with clumsy title.

The ad is a neoconservative call to arms. “Our enemies don’t fear us,” the Hill reports on the ad. It includes the usual claptrap about President Obama: “a president more respectful to the ayatollah of Iran than the prime minister of Israel.”

    Ummmm… America helped train the Muhajideen against the Soviets (Operation Cyclone) and funded “Wahhabi” Salafist teachings, unleashing a mind virus. That money went into building Al Qaieda. Then they went into Iraq and destroyed all the infrastructure that kept extremist terrorists at bay. Now Al Qaieda in Iraq became ISIS, and is recruiting more radicals via the internet. Then USA went into Libya as part of a multinational coalition, to remove Gadaffi. While that in itself was a timely operation (he was bombing his own people), they have utterly failed to do nation building there, and now Libya is a failed state. And now we are “arming the rebels in Syria” against the Alawite government, destabilizing yet another country. As bad as dictators are, history has shown that the failed state is worse. And what exactly does the USA stand for? Going halfway around the world to arm and fund rebels in Afghanistan, Syria? Destroying a country Iraq that never attacked us?

    In 2001 the world stood with us as we were attacked by terrorists. Now because of the USA’s wars in Iraq and what followed, Bush’s “pre emptive doctrine”, there is more terrorism and death. I would ask when wealthy countries will stop funding rebels and proxy battles in other countries, and let them figure things out themselves. Who indeed do we stand with? Saudis who fund rebels against Assad and bomb Yemen? Or Iran who supports Assad and fights ISIS? The USA helped bring about this mess in the Middle East.

      (he was bombing his own people)

      this is neocon code used by interventionalists to justify invasion — just thought i’d mention.

      Then they went into Iraq and destroyed all the infrastructure that kept extremist terrorists at bay.

      the US didn’t keep the islamic state extremists at bay in iraq, saddam did. the US used the extremists who entered iraq only after our invasion to facilitate the civil war they propagated there as a means to break up the state into separate sectarian states (still the neocon plan) and to justify the continued presence of US troops there after the initial shock and awe and mission accomplished pr.

      He was not bombing non violent protestors, but armed Islamic rebels.

    Yes, Ruby, you’re a lunatic.

    I’m not sure if you’re the best lunatic to run for the Republicans.

    Good thing I’m Canadian; like Cruz.

    The last gasp of the neocon establishment in the GOP. They never cared for America as much as they cared for Israel. I’ll be enjoying their rot.

    It’s strange that the non-interventionists won faster in the GOP than in the democrats. But it’ll come to the democrats, too.

    Obama won in part because of his opposition to the Iraq war. Bernie is far, far more popular among the young grassroots. The future of the Democratic party is clear: non-interventionism and democratic socialism. Clinton may prolong that transition, but it’s coming nonetheless. The neocon establishment is dying.

    And it turns out there will be no refuge in either party.

    At least Rubio has not got a petition to UK Parliament banning his presence here. Our government has just responded to 566,248 petitioners wanting to ban trump from the UK https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/114003?reveal_response=yes#response-threshold
    A rival petition has reached 38,118 signatures https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/114907?reveal_response=yes#response-threshold
