Just a mere couple of weeks ago at the CNN Republican debate, Marco Rubio issued a warning to the nation of what Americans were going to see happening within the next couple of weeks. And you know what? He was right.
“Here’s what you are going to see in the next few weeks. The Russians will begin to fly combat missions in that region, not just targeting ISIS, but in order to prop up Assad. He will also then turn to other countries and say ‘America is no longer a reliable ally, Egypt. America is no longer a reliable ally, Saudi Arabia. Begin to rely on us.’ What he is doing is trying to replace us as the single most important power broker in the middle east, and this president is allowing it. That is what is happening in the middle east. That is what is happening with Russia.”
So far it has played out exactly as Rubio had predicted. According to the Blaze, Russian airstrikes not only targeted ISIS but also American backed Rebels who oppose Assad.
The second part of Rubio’s prediction is also coming to fruition as the Iraqi Prime Minister said that he would welcome Russian airstrikes in Iraq as he is disappointed with the U.S. led coalition.
Do you think Rubio was right? If so, what (if anything) should the United States do about it?
