He never said he wants to invade Iran. He's never been an isolationist. Why give your post any credence?

There is a big difference in non intervention and isolation.
Too bad the left is so confused about it, on purpose.
Keep them ignorant and fear will let us rule them.

OK I was mistaken with isolationism vs interventionalism. But didn't he want the US to no longer be a world police officer, yet he wants to go into Iran due to the same amount of evidence we had to invade Iraq in 2003. Is that not a flip-flop right there?

You have to quit listening to what the media says he says and listen to him instead. He doesn't want to go into Iran.

“Are you ready to send ground troops into Iran? Are you ready to bomb them? Are you ready to send in 100,000 troops?” Mr. Paul asked. “I’m a big fan of trying to exert and trying the diplomatic option as long as we can. If it fails, I will vote to resume sanctions and I would vote to have new sanctions,” he said. “But if you do it in the middle of negotiations, you’re ruining it.”

and

"There's no one in Washington more against war and more for a negotiated deal than I am," Paul said in an interview at SXSW in Austin, Texas. "But I want the negotiated deal to be a good deal. So my reason for signing onto the letter, (to Obama more leverage) I think it reiterates what is the actual law, that Congress will have to undo sanctions. But I also signed onto the letter because I want the president to negotiate from a position of strength which means that he needs to be telling them in Iran that 'I've got Congress to deal with.'"
