“I look at it on a personal basis,” Rand Paul told Meet the Press on Sunday. “I ask, ‘Do I want to send one of my sons, or your son, to fight to regain Mosul?’ And I think, ‘Well ya, these are nasty terrorists, we should want to kill them.’ …If [Iraqis are] ripping their uniforms off and fleeing, if they don’t think Mosul is worth saving, how am I going to convince my son or your son to die for Mosul – another bad terrorist?”
And THAT’s the question Dick Cheney will never ask about Iraq: ‘Do you want your son to die for this?’
MSNBC political analyst, David Corn, on Hardball With Chris Matthews elaborates:
“’Do you want your son to die for this?’ We lost 4500 Americans men and women, over 100,000, maybe 200,000 dead Iraqis. There is a real exhaustion. … There’s a basic divide here between people who see war and foreign policy as a giant chessboard to move around the pieces — and I usually don’t agree with Rand Paul — but those who see it in human costs and advantages. And that’s what we’re seeing here. Dick Cheney will never talk about what you paid to get what you got in Iraq.”
