Rand Paul blasts Rubio: "We're lucky he wasn't president during the Cold War"

“We are really lucky [Rubio] was never president during the Cold War,” Paul told CNBC’s John Harwood. “[Reagan] avoided a Cold War by, one, not setting red lines like that, continuing to have open communication with the Russians, having a strong enough defense to repel attack and to worry the Russians.”

He continued, “This is where the Rubios and the McCains of this world need to re-examine history. When you look at what happened in Iraq, we spent a trillion dollars, we toppled Saddam Hussein. Who is their number one ally now? Iran. Who is Iran and Iraq allied with? Russia. Who gave Russia permission to fly over them to bring the equipment in? Iraq.”
