Discuss U.S. policy in Syria in a more meaningful way

Afghanistan and Syria: It is not clear where O'Rourke stands on President Donald Trump's proposed withdrawal from Afghanistan and Syria.

O'Rourke has said he thinks U.S. policy in Syria should be debated and discussed in a more meaningful way. It is not clear if he supports troop withdrawal from the country. Likewise it is not clear if he would withdraw troops from Afghanistan.

Nuclear treaty was best path to prevent Iranian nukes

Q: Iran: Support Trump's withdrawal from treaty that limits Iran's nuclear capability in return for lifting economic sanctions?

Ted Cruz (R): Yes. Applauded withdrawal, saying agreement didn't sufficiently rein in Iran's nuclear program.

Beto O'Rourke (D): No. Agreement, while imperfect, was "best path to keep Iran from having nuclear weapons."

We need to think before acting in Mideast

When we're not clear with ourselves, with the American people about what our goals are and what we're willing to sacrifice to achieve them, then we are setting ourselves up for certain failure. That, to me, describes our approach to the Middle East. It's easy to criticize and hard to prescribe a solution, but I think that begins with some humility about whether it's ours to solve and maybe we should rethink what our goals are in that region.
