Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., suggested he would require any resolution approving U.S. military involvement in Syria pass the Senate by a filibuster-proof majority.
Paul hinted Tuesday that he could invoke the parliamentary procedure to delay or effectively block a vote to approve President Barack Obama's request for authority to launch strikes against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

I was lukewarm on Rand Paul until today.
Why would Assad use chemical weapons when he is winning the war?

I am no huge fan of Rand but see him as the least of the (d)evils in the Senate.
