    Rand Paul: Saudi Arabia is Number One at Spreading Terror]
    Speaking at TAC's annual conference, the senator called out MbS, Iran sanctions, and 'Trump Derangement Syndrome.' (Watch)

    Senator Rand Paul took sharp aim at Saudi Arabia in his keynote speech at The American Conservative’s fifth annual foreign policy conference Thursday, in particular blaming the Kingdom for the destruction of Yemen, for spreading extremist ideology across the globe, and for the grisly murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

    The Republican senator from Kentucky is one of the leading advocates for foreign policy realism and restraint in Congress and often contributes to TAC.




    In his speech, Paul discussed his efforts to rein in the Saudi war campaign in Yemen, which he called “a particular tragedy because they’re one of the poorest countries on the planet.”

    Paul noted that Saudi Arabia’s role in the Middle East was overall a destructive one. Riyadh, he noted, has spent $100 billion exporting extreme Wahabbist Islam to places as far away as Indonesia and funding madrassas that teach hatred in nations like Pakistan and India.

    “So if you ask me who’s the worst at spreading hatred and trying to engender terrorism around the world, it’s Saudi Arabia hands down,” Paul said. “And if you say which people is probably more likely to come to Western ways and more likely to train with us and like the West, it’s probably Iran.”

    But just because he disapproves of Saudi Arabia doesn’t mean he supports slapping them with sanctions or even an embargo. He said he preferred that America respond by declining to repair the Saudi planes that are now wreaking so much havoc on Yemen, as well as stopping the flow of American weapons into Riyadh.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Rand Paul again.

    ETA: Rand was quoted as saying "train with us", which doesn't make any sense. He actually said "trade with us". The quote is at the 6:47 mark in the OP video.

    Leaving out the "sort of"s and "you know"s, Rand said: "So if you ask me who is the worst at [...] spreading hatred and [...] trying to engender terrorism around the world, it's Saudi Arabia, hands down. And if you say which peoples are probably more likely to come to Western ways and more likely to trade with us and like [...] trading with the West, it's probably Iran."
