Paul fired back that if the US were trying to "create a Kurdish homeland … damn it, yes, we need a debate and a vote and a resolution of power. "
" This is a complete mess, "he added." It's time to get the hell out. "

McConnell said the House's measure was "badly insufficient." He added that he was "silent" on the US military presence in Syria and that "perhaps the purpose was to address differences in the Democratic Party."
