I was just on the Todd Schnitt show...Submitted by wpsmithjr on Wed, 01/04/2012 - 18:18
I think I did ok, but I don't know because he kept cutting me off. I'm a veteran of the first Gulf War and he's been insulting the military for supporting Paul...calling us "paulsies" and saying the we were "uneducated". Somehow HE knows more about what is going on in the middle east than the people actually doing the fighting. You know, his chickenhawk opinion... sitting in his little chickenhawk studio... all safe and cozy in Tampa, FL.
Listening to his show is like listening to the little screen in Orwell's 1984. "Ignorance is Strength!"
Anyway, I mentioned that we overthrew Iran's gov in 1953. I mentioned that we funded Saddam's rise to power. I mentioned that we armed and funded Bin Laden. I mentioned the military bases in Saudi Arabia that led to 9/11. I mentioned the fact that Halliburton sold nuclear technology to Iran. He cut me off at that point and called me a conspiracy theorist!! Then he came back from the break and said his research shows that the only place he can find anything about Halliburton and Iran was on conspiracy theory websites.
So I sent him a link to the CSPAN questioning on his FB page. I'm not sure if he'll leave it up or delete it.
I was trying to make the point that we keep creating our own enemies and then arming them.
Who's foreign policy is whacky again?
Here's the audio of my call. I was the first caller of the hour...
I plan on calling in as much as possible between now and the Florida primary.
