During an appearance on CBS This Morning, U.S. Senator and GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul said that the Islamic State can be defeated "when civilized Islam steps up and civilized Islam says that this aberration that is ISIS is intolerable."
"Well, I think you need everybody that’s willing to fight against ISIS. And it’s difficult. We have tolerated so far the Shiite militias and we have tolerated the Iranian influence. I’m not sure we could stop it, if we wanted to.
"The thing is that people need to understand the Middle East is complicated and there are no easy answers. We need to do what we do to protect American interests. That means our consulate at Erbil needs to be defended better than Benghazi was defended and Baghdad needs to be defended.
"But the thing is that the ultimate victory is going to become when civilized Islam steps up and civilized Islam says that this aberration that is ISIS is intolerable," Paul said.
