    Rand Paul opposes U.S. attack if it could ‘kill Christians in Syria’

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said on Tuesday that an attack on Syria would be a bad idea if U.S. weapons were “used to kill Christians.”

    In an interview with conservative radio host Mike Huckabee, Paul said that President Barack Obama needed to understand that “there are 2 million Christians living in Syria, more than just about any place in the Middle East.”

    “And I just don’t want to see my kids or weapons of the United States being used to kill Christians in Syria,” he explained.

    I guess it's a Paul family trait to want to do the right thing, but for questionable reasons.

    The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness. -- John Kenneth Galbraith
