Here’s How Ted Cruz Would Fight ISIS as President

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) tonight outlined how he would deal with ISIS, Iran, and Russia, if elected president in 2016.

The presidential contender said the U.S. cannot defeat radical Islam if it doesn’t identify it.

“It is a bizarre, Orwellian double-speak that this is a president who will not utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism,’” Cruz said.

The Republican senator noted that Obama called the terror attack in Paris “a random act of violence.”

“When radical Islamists go in with butcher knives to a kosher deli to murder Jews because of their Jewish faith, it’s not random,” Cruz said. “It is naked anti-Semitism.”

Cruz said that Iran is America’s no. 1 security threat, while radical Islam ranks second and Russia places third.

According to Cruz, the Iran deal would pave a path toward the nation acquiring nuclear weapons. He told Hannity about legislation that he introduced to impose sanctions on Iran that wouldn’t be lifted until Iran disassembles all centrifuges, hands over its enriched uranium and stops being a state sponsor of terrorism.

Cruz also detailed a plan to defeat ISIS, calling for Kurdish forces to be used as the principal boots on the ground alongside overwhelming air force power. Cruz said that if America needs to embed Special Forces or bring in limited ground troops, it should.

“But it shouldn’t be a political decision – yes, boots on the ground, no, boots on the ground – it should be a military decision what’s necessary to destroy ISIS,” he explained. More
