Ron Paul: Give Iraq NothingSubmitted by PaulFanDC on Fri, 06/13/2014 - 15:50
US News: As jihadi rebels advance toward Baghdad after capturing much of Iraq’s north, former Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, says America’s chickens are coming home to roost and the U.S. should provide absolutely no assistance to the Iraqi government.
“Give them nothing,” the former presidential candidate advises. “The people in that country have to deal with it.”
“We have a choice: Should we work real hard to preserve a government [in Iraq] that may become a very, very close ally with Iran, or should we throw our support with al-Qaida, which we have done in the past?” Paul says. “I don’t want to pick between the two.”
