The Hill: Ron Paul Fears US Will Invade Pakistan Next

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/161827-ron-...

GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul is worried the U.S. may invade Pakistan after Osama din Laden's death.

"I am absolutely afraid we will be in Pakistan trying to occupy that country," Paul, a congressman from Texas and a critic of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, said Wednesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Paul acknowledged has has no solid evidence that the U.S. has plans to "invade" Pakistan, but described his observation as being based on American foreign policy over the past two or three decades, and its "unintended consequences."

Siebel Edmonds article on this

and she references Ron Paul's comments. It's a bit long, but well worth the read.

" Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of they day; but a series of oppresssions...pursued unalterably, through every change of ministers, too plainly proove delibrate, systematical plan of reducing us to slavery..."

Will not be pleased. They will be monitoring the situation.

p.s. it would be quite a show for the msm and a tremendous and marvelous distraction from domestic issues.

Sarcasm inside

I wonder why Ron Paul thinks that? Maybe it has to do with all the talk coming from the White House about how since they allegedly killed Bin Laden, now Pakistan is a new threat even though last month they were an ally. What we need in the White House right now is non-interventionist President who understand The Constitution and sovereignty.

For Liberty

Ron Paul is correct again...

War with Pakistan is the goal, and I say by November 2011 America will be there unfortuantely. Where are all the dems who vote this loser (Obama) in because he was going to stop war, and bring our troops home. I truely hope they have learned their lesson with Obama(the liar), and will chose Ron Paul next go around.

Practise war against WMD?

A thought, wouldn't this be America's first actual war against a power with WMD?

Maybe the purpose of invading Pakistan would be to determine if they could provide counter measures against such weapons and still fight a war against a nation with strategic weapons...

OK, this could definitely be

OK, this could definitely be one of the reasons, if not the reason, why Netanyahu and Obama are going to meet in a closed-door meeting tomorrow in DC! Watch out, not even the MSM is going to cover this, this could be a turning point!

who cares what Obama may say to Netanyahu...

We the people of America have the final say, and we better get to saying it soon, or we will be submitting to whatever this arrogant pig (OBAMA) tells other nations even if he is lying through his teeth.

Unintended Consequences

Unintended Consequences- How will the U. S. react if Pakistan cuts off the main supply line into Afghanistan?

Seriously, who cares...

Our military should not be there anyway, "just bring them home".

fuck...............

fuck war!

The U.S. is not gonna invade Pakistan

It's a country with 180 million (radical fanatics). That's more than 3 times the population of Afghnistan an Iraq combine. There not that dumb(I hope)

Keep this up and it's just a matter of time...

It's pretty obvious they are drumming up hate for Pakistan

and that is usually a sign that they are gearing up for war.

Americans don't care, there is no limit to how much warmongering they will support or shrug about, it's just totally insane.

RP

I think he may very well be correct. There are in reality very few other foreign policy options left for the region.

otherwise the Pakistani's will fill the vaccuum at the behest of China imo.

India would be reluctant to embroil themselves in Afghanistan.

Pakistan does indeed have WMD as well.

My Prediction for an Invasion of Pakistan: March 2013

Not before the end of the 2012 election cycle and inauguration, that would be inconvenient!

Who knows, maybe on the 10 year anniversary of the Irag invasion? They sure have a sense of humor about things.

In the meantime they will probably keep bombing Libya target practice, and maybe add Syria to the rotation.

RON PAUL 2012

There will be NO invasion of

There will be NO invasion of Pakistan after 1/20/13. Our new Commander-In-Chief, Ron Paul, will not likely move the troops there unless Pakistan makes the first move. I'm sure Pakistan would know that, based on Ron Paul's foreign policy, any declaration of war against Pakistan would never lead to actual war as long as Pakistan held a wait-and-see position. So Congress can declare what they want but Ron wont attack unless in national defense.

RP for Sanity,

Thanks LL. I tried to post a note on The Hill, did not get thru, but I read some positive comments.

Ron Paul Is The Only Sane Politician in the field today, not just in America. He has been very consistent with the message of Liberty, to live and let live. The rest of the politicians seem to have lost their marbles.

The world will be a much better place if Ron Paul is elected to the Oval Office. He is a caring person from the medical profession, has a good grasp of economy and finance, is not wasteful, and surely against unjust wars.
- America has the strongest military in the world.
- Ron Paul is a patriot, will not let his guard down.
- America will be much safer & happier under his watch.
- Rest of the world can rest easy because he is not aggressive.
As for terrorism, it is simply criminal, and police action is enough, you do not need to go to war to catch or kill a few persons.
Ron Paul 2012, for Revival of Liberty & rule of Law.

Thanks Najam

positive feedback from you and others is like food for my soul.

Ron Paul: US Faces Dead-End Occupation of Pakistan

Rep. Ron Paul warns that U.S.-Pakistan relations are so perilous that he believes the United States could be sucked into a quagmire of occupying Pakistan. Repeating Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” his claims that the United States should have gone after Osama bin Laden differently, the Texas Republican also said U.S. methodologies have created a civil war in Pakistan.

“The relationship with Pakistan — it’s an impossible situation. Here’s a country that we worked with them, George Bush worked with them, and we captured a lot of bad people, brought over the people responsible for the first bombing of [the World Trade Center] — but now you say we can’t work with them anymore,” Paul said.

I've been fairly certain it wasn't Osama Bin Laden they were after over there. I wonder what Pakistan holds?

Thanks

I saw this article posted on prisonplanet this morning.

Pakistan with over 170 million people has close relations with China lately...it's like a gateway to China.
I fear like Paul Craig Roberts that World War III is brewing.
