Europeans have been relentlessly killing each other throughout their history. At the conclusion of the
second world war, something happened that brought stability to Wester Europe: the United States maintained a military presence.
Ron Paul says this is wrong and we should close down our bases and come home.
In 1950, North Korea invaded South Korea, precipitating a war that involved the United States. Fighting ended in 1953. The U.S. has maintained a military presence in South Korea which has lent stability to this volatile region.
North Korea is again in the midst of regime change. We know very little about the new leader.
Ron Paul says we should close up shop and come home and hope for the best.
Does anyone think Korea will remain stable if we were to withdraw?
Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has made countless inflammatory comments about American ally, Israel. Here are a few nuggets:
[Israel] “is an illegitimate regime, there is no legal basis for its existence.”
“As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map.”
“There is no doubt that the new wave [of attacks] in Palestine will wipe off this stigma [Israel] from the face of the Islamic world…the World without Zionism.”
“The establishment of the Zionist regime was a move by the world oppressor against the Islamic world. The Islamic world will not let its historic enemy live in its heartland.”
Mr. Ahmadinejad’s comments very much mirror the sentiments of the late German Fuhrer, Adolph Hitler:
“I believe today that I am acting in the sense of the Almighty Creator. By warding off the Jews I am fighting for the Lord’s work.”
“….the personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew.”
“The internal expurgation of the Jewish spirit is not possible in any platonic way. For the Jewish spirit is the product of the Jewish person. Unless we expel the Jewish people. Unless we expel the Jewish people soon, they will have judaized our people within a very short time.”
Mr. Paul isn’t worried.
He doesn’t seem concerned that Iran is quickly developing a nuclear weapon, and, in fact, he seems to even discount that possibility.
A nuclear Iran seems to scare everyone outside of the Arab world except for one man: Ron Paul.
Do you really think Ron Paul’s desire for American isolationism is really going to make the world safer?
History says no.
