Rand Paul: Republicans Are Acting Like ‘Grade-School Children’ on Iran

“The administration, mostly at John Bolton’s behest, tore up the Iran agreement, placed a significant, severe embargo on Iran, and then killed one of their major generals — nobody in their right mind would actually think that that would lead to negotiations,” Rand said. “So when Secretary of State [Mike] Pompeo’s out there saying, ‘Well, maximum pressure, our goal is to get them back to the negotiating table,’ no naive child would believe that, you would have to be brain-dead to believe that. … Nothing justifies their military action, but it is predictable given what path we’ve chosen.”
