Comment: Rand Paul is doing the best he can with limited knowledge.

Rand Paul is doing the best he can with limited knowledge.

He does not have a real understanding of what is actually happening in the world especially the role of the US and its allies in destabilising so many countries in order to further the objectives of the oligarchy that rules the world.

I am quite sure he believes that, as James Corbett says, 9/11 was an attack by 19 Middle Eastern men mostly Saudi Arabians who were led by a man on a dialysis machine sending orders from a laptop computer hiding in a cave in Tora Bora.

He probably shares the same world view of his country that most Americans have and does not realise that the people who control America do not have the same values as he has himself. When he says he wants to cut aid to Libya for example he does not take into account that before the US and its allies destroyed that country of only six million people using the combined forces of NATO the most powerful military alliance on Earth Libya was the most wealthy country in Africa with virtually no debt and foreign assets of $150 billion plus many tonnes of gold. They had already contributed $30 billion to the proposed African Monetary Fund that was being set up to replace the predatory IMF and World Bank.

All that wealth was stolen by the US and its allies and any money being used now by the Libyan government is being lent to them by the Rothschild Central Bank set up in Benghazi before the Libyan War started. This money is then given to the global corporations who have crowded into Libya to benefit from the contracts to rebuild the infrastructure destroyed by NATO and their al Qaeda allies. One can only imagine how much this will cost the Libyan people by the time these gougers and looters are through. After they have enslaved the people to their debt they will then proceed to loot their resources and the Libyan people will be set back decades after reaching a very high standard of living as the Switzerland of Africa during the years of Qadhafe's leadership.

The US government is guilty of horrendous war crimes against much weaker nations and the narrative that is believed by the mass of the American public is a tissue of lies from beginning to end. This narrative sees America as a benign force for good in the world and it is this picture of his country that motivates Senator Paul. He wants to cut off foreign aid to every nation except those who are friends of America. The truth is that the US government owes reparations to many countries that would bankrupt the country if they were assessed honestly and paid to those most harmed by their predations.

It is not aid sent as a gift and spent on US and its allies' corporate goods and services that is the just recompense. It is a withdrawal of all troops from all these countries, an end to the bombing and killing of hundreds of thousands of innocent people, a plea by all the American people for forgiveness for all their past actions, a complete accounting of all the destruction levied on these countries and the bringing to justice of all those who are responsible for commanding that destruction.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
