Via Daily Caller:

On Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul said there’s a 50/50 chance Congress would authorize a strike against Syria, and said the U.S. may want to delay intervention in the Syria conflict after Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons.

In the interview, Paul turned the tables on Secretary of State John Kerry and asked how he could ask the first man to die for a mistake.

“I think it’s a mistake to get involved in the Syrian civil war,” Paul said. “And what I would ask John Kerry is, you know, he’s famous for saying, you know, ‘how can you ask a man to be the last one to die for a mistake?’ I would ask John Kerry, how can you ask a man to be the first one to die for a mistake? I would ask John Kerry, do you think that it’s less likely or more likely that chemical weapons will be used again if we bomb Assad? I will ask him if it’s more likely or less likely that we’ll have more refugees in Jordan or that Israel might suffer attack. I think all of the bad things you can imagine are all more likely if we get involved in the Syrian civil war.”
