Congressman Ron Paul - Imagine - Texas Straight Talk
yep....and we shouldn't have any of these bases anywhere in the world.....
Paul is being disingenuous. The scenario he presents is jaundiced to his point of view. His attitudes about foreign policy are THE biggest reason he has no support from me.
Great Article! Thanks for sharing!
How is it jaundiced to his point of view? I think he's absolutely correct that Americans would object to a foreign nation having a military presence in the United States.
He's not talking about the US, he's building a strawman case AGAINST US presence on foreign soil.
His point is that we'd object to it here, and they're going to object to it over there. I think that's a direct quote of his from one of the debates, as well.
It's disingenuous. We invaded Iraq to get rid of Sodamn Insane. We stayed there to help the people of Iraq rebuild. There are some Iraqis who object, but the vast majority do not. MOST of the "objectors" WERE from outside the country, not from within.
He's simply being dishonest and greatly over-simplifying for the morons who listen to his dumb ass.
We invaded a nation that did no harm to us and made a huge mess of the region. I'd say his scenario is a pretty good one.
It was already a great big mess. Iraq "did no harm to us" but was shooting at our planes which were lawfully patrolling the no-fly zone, WAS funding terrorists and allowing them training bases on his soil, and now WE have control of the center of the chessboard that is the Middle east.
IslamoNazis and idiots like Paul HATE that!
Ron Paul is a dumbass. "NO" is his only answer. He lies about his reasons for no.
