The Enemy of My Enemy is Still My Enemy, Dana

Southern California puts out some kooky congressmen and congresswomen, but none as kooky as Dana Rohrabacher (apologies to Darrell Issa and Duncan Hunter, Jr.).

Regarding a recent terrorist attack in Iran that left at least 17 dead, Rohrabacher stated:
...isn’t it a good thing for us to have the United States finally backing up Sunnis who will attack Hezbollah and the Shiite threat to us? Isn’t that a good thing? And if so, maybe this is a Trump — maybe it’s a Trump strategy of actually supporting one group against another, considering that you have two terrorist organizations.
I shouldn't have to tell you that the Sunnis he is refering to are ISIS. This is not the result of a confusion, or a faux pas, Rohrabacher very is saying exactly what he means:
So that’s like Joe Stalin was a horrible guy, we must never associate with horrible guys like that, even against Hitler...
Or associating with the mujaheddin (who he claims he fought with) against the Soviet Union, right? That turned out swell.

Look, Iran has all sorts of problems and there are a million reasons why we shouldn't ignore them. But their sins are certainly no worse than Saudi Arabia's, who are currently playing Trump and getting everything they want from him  just by stroking his ego. Supporting ISIS against Iran may be the most ridiculous thing I've heard all week, and that is a very high bar to reach.
