Col. Douglas Macgregor: "the differences between Governor Romney and President Obama are marginal at best"Submitted by robbjerk on Fri, 05/04/2012 - 17:49
"Iraq and Afghanistan are disasters and anyone who asserts otherwise is misinformed. I recently met with someone who is an advocate for Mitt Romney and he was unhappy with me because I pointed out that the differences between Governor Romney and President Obama are marginal at best. He was trying to demonstrate how profoundly different they were. He was unsuccessful but one of the things he insisted on was that Obama had somehow or another sacrificed our great gains in Iraq. I looked at him and said, "You can't be serious." He said, "What do you mean?" He seemed to be completely unaware, as many Americans are, that Iraq is effectively a satellite for Iran. That the United States Army and it's generals did a brilliant job of consolidating the power and influence of Iran inside Iraq, by backing Mr. Maliki who is always Tehran's chosen candidate and utterly destroying the Sunni Arab population's influence and power."
This is just a small selection from a powerful April 15th Daily Bell interview with Col. Douglas Macgregor entitled "Colonel Douglas Macgregor on Two Failed Wars and Why He Supports Ron Paul for President."
