Comment: NATO (the US) destroyed Libya and stole their foreign assets.

NATO (the US) destroyed Libya and stole their foreign assets.

They are killing civilians with drones in Pakistan and destabilised Egypt with their Arab Spring machinations. If Senator Paul highlighted and condemned these actions and demanded that the US stop interfering in these nations while paying them reparations then his demand to stop foreign aid to them would carry more weight with those of us who are awake.

He also does not demand stopping aid to Israel that has been designated as a "terror state" by the UN Goldstone Report after the Cast Lead operation which killed defenceless Palestinian women and children in cold blood with phosphorus munitions supplied by the US.

The point is that all these things are interconnected and focusing asymmetrically on one aspect has the same effect as treating them unjustly. The US has been very unjust already in its treatment of other nations for many decades. It is time for more than one US leader (Ron Paul) to recognise this and call for substantial change.

"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)
