Don Bacon on War & Peace

 

 


Defeat ISIS with assertive leadership & special forces

We need to defeat ISIS with assertive leadership, our superior airpower, and special forces. Iraq and other regional partners should be the lead with ground forces. Our regional partners will do this with strong American leadership, and it is clear that leading from behind will not get the job done. The current policy is allowing Iran to be the dominant power in Iraq. We are barely containing ISIS, and this is a recipe for future disaster.

Opposes waiting; go after militant Islam abroad.

Bacon opposes the AFA survey question on the War on Terror

The American Family Association Action Voter Guide asked if candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'The U.S. military should wait for militant Islamic groups to directly threaten our national security on our shores, rather than eradicate them now wherever they may be worldwide.' American Family Association Action (AFA Action) produces the online "iVoterGuide" for selected state and federal races. The mission of AFA Action is to inform and mobilize individuals to strengthen the biblical foundations of America.

Supports American intervention in Mideast beyond air support.

Bacon supports the PVS survey question on Mideast intervention

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'National Security: Do you support increased American intervention in Iraq and Syria beyond air support?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
