Paul addresses the issue of foreign policy in a speech at the Center for National Interest in New York.
We need a foreign policy that recognized our limits, preserves our might and a common sense conservative realism of strength and action. America shouldn’t fight wars where the best outcome is stalemate. America shouldn’t fight wars when there is no plan for victory. America shouldn’t fight wars that aren’t authorized by the American people. America should and will fight wars when the consequences — intended and unintended — are worth the sacrifice. The war on terror is not over, and America cannot disengage from the world.
