From IJReview: There have been some within his own party who have expressed concern of Sen. Rand Paul’s foreign policy, fearing that he may be somewhat of an isolationist.

But, the newly declared presidential candidate has a message for his critics:

“War is not a game.”

The New York Times reports, in a speech aboard the U.S.S. Yorktown in Charleston, S.C., Paul issued a warning about forgetting the sacrifices of war veterans:

“’They knew better than anyone in Washington the sacrifice necessary to protect liberty,’ he said. ‘They didn’t talk about strength and courage. They lived it.’”

Paul went on to talk about what would happen should he become commander-in-chief:

“I will never take the country to war without just cause and without congressional approval. But if war should prove unavoidable, we will fight with overwhelming force and not relent until victory is ours.”

Earlier this week, Newsweek reports that Paul was the lone GOP candidate to openly criticize the “wild defense spending and demonstrably failed foreign policy initiatives of interventionists in both parties.”
