At the CNN/Tea Party Debate last night, Congressman Ron Paul, said America is in trouble because of the countries we “occupy.” That shook me to my toes. While I agree with many things Paul is for, I would never support a candidate who believes we “occupy” any other land. Paul has to know this is dishonest. We are nowhere, where the government of the country doesn’t want us to be. Maybe ALL the people don’t want us there, but MANY of the people do want us there. We are taking no land or riches anywhere. We are there “defending.” When Iraq asked us to leave in part, that’s what we did. Read the full statement below, and see the video.
Friends, that’s a disgrace and it’s dishonest!
Here’s the bottom line. Islamic men (Islamists) have little to do that excites. If not married, they can’t even been seen with a woman. They have no jobs, they live under oppression and often poverty, they have no power – even in their personal lives unless they have a wife or daughter to beat, and they are angrier than hell. They believe to their core that Islam must dominate the world. They follow the Koran. They have nothing to give-up by dying for martyrdom. That’s why they attacked us. They hate everything, EVERYTHING we stand for. They hate everything all Western countries stand for, but they chose America because we are the beacon of freedom and liberty across the globe.
I don’t know the answer to how we get out of Iraq or Afghanistan, but I do know that we don’t get it done because we are “occupying”
I’m tired of all the militarism we are involved in, and we are wasting this money and getting us involved. I agree, we are still in danger, but most of the danger comes from a lack of wisdom about how we run our country, so I would say there is a lot room to cut on the military, but not on the defense…
We are under great threat because we OCCUPY so many countries. We are in 130 countries. We have over 900 bases around the world. We’re going broke. The purpose of al-Qaeda was to attack us. Invite us over there to attack us…We are there, occupying their land…What would we do if China did to us, what we are doing over there.
We’re in 130 countries around the world.
