Breitbart - Rand Breaks With Ron: All Options On Table To Prevent Nuclear Iran

by Larry O'Connor | Breitbart

"Why shouldn't Iran have Nuclear weapons?" Those were the disconcerting words from Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) during a 2011 GOP debate in Iowa as the perennial presidential candidate gave Americans reason number one to not take him seriously as a candidate for Commander in Chief.

His son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), is probably going to run for president some day. Some think it will be sooner rather than later. And last week, Sen. Paul broke ranks with his father and drew a line in the sand with Iran.

On WMAL-FM with me and co-host Brian Wilson, Sen. Paul spoke strongly about the sanctions against Iran, something his father called a "precursor to war and an embarrassment to a country that pays lip service to free trade."

The best thing for peace would be a nuclear Iran.

If Iran had nukes for real, that would be the ultimate equalizer. That would keep us from our plunder of the Middle East. That would keep us from talk of war.

If I was an Iranian, even a peaceful one...even one who wanted freedom, I would want nuclear capability so that it would keep the US and other countries from going to war with us.

DUH!!

History is VERY CLEAR

The US will invade countries without nukes and negotiate with countries with nukes. When people say "Nuke Iran" they are closer to the truth than they realize...
WELL SAID.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Brietbart is so dishonest

"Why shouldn't Iran have Nuclear weapons?" Those were the disconcerting words from Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) during a 2011 GOP debate in Iowa as the perennial presidential candidate gave Americans reason number one to not take him seriously as a candidate for Commander in Chief.

I clicked on the link and listened to the whole thing. Ron Paul didn't say those words. He tried to explain why Iran might want to get a nuke, but he never suggested that they should.

anyway, Rand continues to disappoint.

The fact is...

either way, Ron Paul is consistent and as such if people have a right to bear arms so do nations.

Just because the state has tricked people

into thinking they have the right to steal doesn't mean they are justified in buying nukes with their loot.

If you and I don't have the right to steal to arm ourselves, then neither do nations (IMO).

Agreed

but the state has other means by which it can earn money honestly to arm itself.

Now he's a War Pig.

Major D-I-S-A-P-P-O-I-N-T-M-E-N-T.

Always was and always will be

Such are the effects of a lack of principle.

I was sittin' on the fence and waiting and watching to see what

he could be. I wasn't pro or anti Rand, but this....is too much for me to even consider him as presidential material.

I don't think Rand is a bad guy

I think more than anything it show the manipulative power in washington that wills people into conforming with their agenda. I think Rand has ambitions of president and he, consciously or unconsciously, acts in accordance with how it appears it will be the easiest to get there.

but I agree, it's not looking like I will be able to cast my vote for him.
