Senator Rand Paul is blocking a resolution from the perpetually war-hungry Senator Lindsey Graham which condemns President Donald Trump’s decision to pull our troops out of Syria and get them home for Christmas.
Graham has been relentlessly attacking the president since he made his Syria announcement.
The resolution would not stop or impede President Trump from bringing our soldiers home, but it expresses “the sense of the Senate that the United States should continue its limited military activities within Syria and that ending such activities at this time would embolden ISIS, Bashar al-Assad, Iran, and Russia.”
Senate Paul’s office is loudly rejecting “the bipartisan war caucus” and standing with the president.

“Senator Graham is mad he has one less war to be involved in. But he shouldn’t be. This is what President Trump ran on, and Senator Paul and President Trump have discussed this often — how to get our troops home,” Senator Paul’s Chief Strategist Doug Stafford told The Gateway Pundit.
Stafford continued on to say, “no one has been more wrong more often on foreign policy than Senator Graham. We finally have a president who will stand up to him and the bipartisan war caucus.”
The non-binding resolution says, “it is in the vital national interest of the United States to continue to support partners, such as the Kurds, in Syria and other locations in the Global War on Terror.”
Senator Graham mentions Russia multiple times in his plea for more war.
