My email to Sean HannitySubmitted by Bob-45 on Sat, 09/24/2011 - 15:08
In your recent post-debate interview with Ron Paul, you "called him out" with a hypothetical question regarding whether or not we could have stopped Adolph Hitler and NAZI Germany had we not been "isolationist" prior to World War II. I feel I can tell you this because both my wife and I are handicapped and NAZI Germany carried out extermination of the handicapped with an even greater zeal than that of the Jewish people. http://www.ushmm.org/museum/exhibit/focus/disabilities/
The US was anything but "isolationist" prior to World War II. Although we were not a member of the League of Nations, we were thoroughly involved in the Far East, actually having US gunboats patrolling the rivers in China. It wasn't US "isolationism" that encouraged Hitler, it was "international appeasement". TIME magazine actually named Adolph Hitler "Man of the Year" in 1938, as he, England's Neville Chamberlain, France's Edouard Daladier and Mussolini carved up Europe into each's "spheres of influence". This occurred again in 1945 when FDR and Churchill appeased Josef Stalin at Yalta. Today, we appease Israel by recognizing borders created as a result of a war they started in 1967. No excuses, Sean, right is right and by every measure our unquestioned support for Israel is appeasement of aggression. Just as the Versailles Treaty set Europe up for World War II our "nation building" and "special relationship with Israel" is setting us up for World War III. Both Israel and ourselves would be better served in letting Israel and her neighbors work out their differences. That is neither "isolationism" nor "appeasement," that is the wisdom of history.
[Thank you all for your kind words; Ron Paul is a hero for all of his great accomplishments, which dwarf anything I could accomplish in several dozen lifetimes. However, I am really inspired by another post and may I suggest it be our mantra? "I am Ron Paul."
