The United States should be arming the Kurds in Syria in a bid to fortify the United States’ war on terror, Sen. Rand Paul tells Newsmax TV.

“We determine what our American interests are and then we try to amplify those who are in favor of [them] … The Kurds, do amplify American interests,” Paul, a Kentucky Republican and GOP presidential candidate, told Ed Berliner on “The Hard Line.”

“I would arm them and I would encourage them and I would help the Kurds. Not only would I help them, I wouldn’t send the weapons to Baghdad and say the Kurds have to beg for them.
