Blame America First? Who are you kidding?!
In Tuesdayâ€™s GOP debate Ron Paul pointed out the obvious when he said: â€œThey attack us because we've been over there. We've been bombing Iraq for 10 years.â€
Dr. Paul is no doubt speaking of the wildy-unsuccessful Iraqi sanctions and the Clinton bombings of Iraq during the 1990â€™s.
Anyone, with even a shred of intellectual honesty, can draw the logical conclusion that when a government bombs people for multiple years and kills over 400,000 people with sanctions, those policies will create enemies that want to hurt American citizens.
Is stating that fact Un-American? Is it â€œblame America firstâ€?
Does anyone rational think that we need to spend one billion dollars a week fighting a country with no Air Force or discernable Army?
Does Guiliani and every other â€œmainstreamâ€ candidate really think intervention will win?
Did it work in the past in Vietnam and Korea?
Will the policies of this undeclared war make safer? Or will encourage more animosity?
Will it save money?
How about lives?
Speak softly and carry a big stick used to stand for something. Hopefully Ron Paul can make us all remember.
