You can bet your bottom dollar we'll be hearing about the U.N.'s latest report on Iran in the next debate. Here's the propaganda they're spewing currently. Better be prepared to deal with their lies.
And here's the lies:
I don't see a note here for this article yet. I wanted to put it in so it gets more of a bump. This is a decent article from someone who is not in full agreement with Ron Paul's foreign policy, but understands it's probably a lot smarter than the status quo or neocon nonsense. This is both the type of more civil/reasonable dialogue that needs to happen and also a good example of people coming into the fold despite not being 100% in agreement.
I am a huge Ron Paul supporter and I have been listening to the debates....during the Ames, IA debate Ron said that Iran doesn't have an Air Force....Last night I was debating with a friend of mine and brought this point to his attention...today he e-mailed me wikipedia's full description of Iran's Air Force, it exists...so can anyone help me out as to why Dr. Paul says and stated that Iran doesn't have an Air Force???? Please help.
What follows are my suggestions to Dr. Paul. I also posted this in another thread as comment. Do you agree?
Question 1. FEMA
Say that private insurance is better than public because
a. You have a choice what to insure for how much,
b. You have competition,
c. You can sue private insurer if they don’t hold to their contract – with the government you don’t even have a contract, they will do whatever, and you have no recourse, and
d. – the most important of all – you don’t force other people to pay for your problems.
a. “We should be like 1900” – not convincing
Juan Cole, a professor at the Univ of Michigan and - deservedly - expert on Middle Eastern affairs, posted his interview today on his website titled "Informed Comment": www.juancole.com
Q. How have Iran and Iraq reacted to unrest in Syria?
Cole: The Iranians have jumped up and down and been very vocal about the repression in Bahrain [and] they have [even] supported the Libyan uprising. In fact, they have supported all of the uprisings.
This is the utter claptrap, garbage that the mainstream media feeds on through sound bytes. The most important quote which they forget to understand is:
"Ahmadinejad on Monday said that Iranians and Muslim nations worldwide should hold Qods rallies and show their willingness to dispose of this "infectious tumor and this REGIME full of rascality."
Never did he say that the people of Israel be ERADICATED.
This is a very logical article by Doug Wead
And yes, Ron Paul is Pro-Israel (freedom FROM the US):
"...Dr. Paul points out that Iran's neighbors, China, Pakistan, Russia, and Israel all have nuclear weapons. And that Israel is well able to take care of itself. Thirty years ago, June 7, 1981, in Operation Opera, Israel took out Iran's developing nuclear program. That was at time when American presidents were not dictating what Israel could or could not do.
Great article by Doug Wead in Newsmax:
Yesterday, I went over the top on a patient when he attacked or questioned Ron Paul's position on Iran.
Here's something to think about. When you consider that Iran's crude oil exports to China dramatically increased in the first two months of 2011(see http://www.payvand.com/news/11/apr/1057.html) and remember that the US dollar no longer plays a role in that trade, you see how important it is to understand Chinese-Iranian relations and how they pertain to the world's fiat currency system, the US elections, and the propaganda campaign about Iran's nukes (see http://www.campaigniran.org/casmii/index.php?q=node/9434).
A Christian attorney and terrorism expert says it's outrageous that Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has no problem with Iran getting a nuclear weapon.
During the recent GOP presidential debate from Ames, Iowa, televised on the Fox News Channel, Paul was asked to expound on earlier comments he made justifying Iran's right to have nuclear weapons.
I was on the phone with my 'neocon' friend yesterday for about 2 hours and we got into it about Ron Paul. By the way, we need to stop calling them 'neocons' or we'll just alienate them even more. We have to reach out to them.
Anyway, I thought I should share with you where most 'neocons' heads are right now (if he's any indication) because I think it highlights what are next priorities should be. If we don't make it a priority to change their minds, this is NOT going to end well. Anyway, here were my takeaways:
For all I know this was already posted and/or created by a member here, but I've only just seen it. Seems to be an accurate depiction of the events in Iran Dr. Paul speaks of.
