Donald Trump: We are going to have to hit very very hard to knock out ISIS. Know who are our allies. The Iran deal is a disgrace and embarrassment.
I am the only one on this stage who was saying "Do not go in to Iraq."
Marco Rubio: 1. What are we doing in the Asian Pacific Region? 2. What are we doing in the Middle East. 3. Rebuild and reinvigorate NATO.
Dr. Carson: No amount of experience really prepares you for doing something that has never been done before. That is where judgement comes in.
John Kasich: We will arm the folks in Ukraine that want to fight for their freedom. We have an opportunity to lead. The world needs us.
Jeb Bush: We need to destroy ISIS and defeat Assad. It is absolutely ludicrous to suggest Russia could be a partner in this thing. I would restore the military. I would have a strategy to defeating ISIS.
Mr. Trump: Jeb is so wrong. You gotta fight ISIS first. You deside what to do after. You can't fight two fights. We've spent 5Trillion on the middle east and have zero to show for it.
Jeb: The very basic fact is Vladimir Putin is not going to be an ally in the Middle East.
Ted Cruz: On day one I will rip to shreds the Iranian nuclear deal. When it comes to ISIS we have got to have a focused strategy. We're not using the tools that we have and it is because the commander in chief is not focused on defeating ISIS.
Donald Trump: As a business man I got along with everybody. I'm self funded. Obviously the war in Iraq was a big fat mistake. We should never have been in Iraq. He (George W. Bush) should have been impeached. They lied. There were no weapons of mass destruction.
Jeb Bush: I'm sick and tired of Barack Obama blaming my brother for every singe problem he has. I am sick and tired of Donald Trump going after my family. While Donald Trump was building a reality tv show my brother was building a security apparatus to keep this country safe.
Mr. Trump: The world trade center came down on your brother's watch.
John Kasich: This is just crazy. We got outselves into Iraq because we thought there were weapons of mass desctruction. We found ourselves in the middle of a civil war. I do not believe that the United States should get involved in civil wars. We should go to war when it is our direct interests.
Marco Rubio: I thank God that it was George W. Bush in the White House on 9/11 and not Al Gore. George W. Bush enforced what the United Nations refused to do.
Mr. Trump: The World Trade Center came down...how is that keeping us safe?
Marco Rubio: The World Trade Center came down because Bill Clinton refused to kill Osama Bin Laden when he had a chance.
Dr. Carson: The current administration turned tail and ran and destabilized the situation (Iraq). Obama says we should bomb tankers because there could be people in them and it could damage the environment. That is just asinine thinking.
