Ron Paul

Transcript, in part, below:

“But there is a political liability which I think is something that we fail to look at because too often there is so much blowback from our intervention in areas that we shouldn’t be involved in. You know, Hamas, if you look at the history, you will find that Hamas was encouraged and actually started by Israel because they wanted Hamas to counteract Yasir Arafat.”

“You say, well yeah, it was better then and served its purpose, but we didn’t want Hamas to do this. So then we, as Americans, say, Well, we have such a good system; we’re going to impose this on the world. We’re going to invade Iraq and teach people how to be democrats. We want free elections. So we encouraged the Palestinians to have a free election. They do, and they elect Hamas.”

“So we first, indirectly and directly through Israel, helped establish Hamas. Then we have an election where Hamas becomes dominant, then we have to kill them. You know, it just doesn’t make sense. During the 1980s, we were allied with Osama bin Laden and we were contending with the Soviets. It was at that time our CIA thought it was good if we radicalize the Muslim world. So we finance the Madrassas school to radicalize the Muslims in order to compete with the Soviets.”

“There is too much blowback…”

Delivered by The Daily Sheeple

Editor’s Note: We print numerous articles on D.C. Clothesline about the real evils of the Islamic culture. We will continue to do that. However, I do not think it is fair to try to cover up the history of how many of these terrorist organizations came to be. There is so much evidence out there of our federal government putting arms in the hands of terrorists. It has not stopped and ultimately we must remember that our elected leaders share the blame. I do not always agree with Ron Paul’s opinions but I certainly agree with his idea that the United States needs to take steps toward a policy of more consistent non-intervention. It is not always possible but many of these wars could be avoided, and many lives saved, by responsible actions that promote real and potentially lasting peace. I don’t think America needs to be soft. But I do think there is wisdom in not getting involved in fights that are not ours. There are not always clear-cut good guys and bad guys as we are led to believe. Wake up America. It has very little to do with right and wrong. We pick the side that benefits us the most and gain whatever we can from every conflict. That is not moral decision making. That is imperialism. -Dean Garrison
