Rubio: Go To War to Defend UN Resolutions! That’s Outrageous (Especially in Light of Women and the Draft)!

Almost forgotten in the midst of the entertaining fight between Donald Trump and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush (finally a debate to listen to again and again!) were these words by Senator Marco Rubio (from the Time official debate transcript with emphasis by the blogger):

09:35:50:00 I just wanna say, at least on behalf of me and my family, I thank God all the time that it was George W. Bush in the White House on 9/11 and not Al Gore. (CHEERING) (APPLAUSE) And you can– I think you can look back in hindsight and say a couple things, but he kept us safe. And not only did he keep us safe, but he– no matter what you wanna say about weapons of mass destruction, Saddam Hussein was in violation of U.N. resolutions, in open violation, and the world wouldn’t do anything about it. And George W. Bush, enforced what the international community, refused to do, and again he kept us safe. And I am forever grateful to what he did for this
09:36:29:00 (OVERTALK)

It is outrageous to even consider going to war to enforce United Nations resolutions.  Especially in light of the ideas that women can be required to register for the draft and serve in combat.  War should be declared in some manner by Congress and only for a compelling national interest.  I don’t want my children fighting in war to enforce UN resolutions.

I think that pretty much rules out Sandy’s support for Senator Rubio.
