So, what part of the Ghandi countdown is it when Ghandi gets his way, the military that is defending you leaves, the country goes into civil war, and the Muslims take part of your country?
The 'Ghandi Countdown' may not be the best thing to mirror a campaign on considering the history of his country.

Hey, you have fans.
http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?t=34654

BTW, if I remember the thread over there correctly, ConstitutionGal was something like KentuckyWoman here and she wasn’t banned for being a Paul supporter, she was banned for spreading nutty conspiracy stuff about the US and Israel faking attacks. I can’t remember exactly, but I remember her bragging over there how she was kicked off..

Ron Paul is a damned moonbat. He’s cindy sheehan with a d*ck. The only thing missing is the love-in with Hugo Chavez, and he’ll probably get around to that as well.

Note that they don’t refute the information. Ron Paul has been asked to release his archives of newsletters and refused to do so. Now we know why. I have contacted Free Republic about getting the materials I have scanned in and sending them to Free Republic as PDFs to post them. I have not heard back yet.

‘lying sniviling traitor’ huh? how many insults can you fit in one sentence? lol

I think looking back we can all agree that something was wrong with the first invasion of Iraq. That American ‘intervention’ has apparently come back to haunt us and Paul’s criticism of that war has, in retrospect, proved to be correct. That said, I disagree with Paul’s angle of attack in this piece, a rare occasion where he truly does adopt leftist rhetoric. He’d be better off sticking to his principles of nonintervention rather than going down the same road as Michael Moore.

And sitting by while Iraqis raped, murdered, and pillaged their way across Kuwait, eyed the Saudi peninsula, and supported terror would have gotten us what exactly?
Yes, Saddam supported terror.

The only thing ‘wrong’ with the first WAR with Iraq was that we didn’t kill Saddam.
Get it right, we did NOT ‘invade’ Iraq, we liberated Kuwait from Iraqi invasion.
Saddam didn’t decide to cease hostilities and sign a surrender agreement until we were almost at his front door.

BTW, do you have the one where Paul makes all those racial insults like the ones under the headline “Terrorist Update,” Paul reported on gang crime in Los Angeles and wrote, “If you have ever been robbed by a black teenaged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be.” About blacks in Washington, D.C., Paul wrote, “I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.”

He originally made the excuse his comments came in the context of “current events and statistical reports of the time,” but later changed that to say someone else wrote it and it wasn’t appoved.

I’m beginning to believe that nearly all American interventionalist foreign policy of the past 50 years has resulted in general unfavorable consequences.

I don’t think it is our ‘duty’ to ‘liberate’ third world dictatorships from other third world dictatorships around the world.

There are several things he is right on, albeit, the path he take for those isn’t always correct. I strongly support his path to reduce business regulation and I can live with his tax policy. Too bad he falls often under the ‘perfect is the enemy of the good’ and has often stood in the way of those things.

I believe just the opposite, that the few ‘blowbacks’ are far outnumbered by successful interventionism (for lack of a better term). The difference is one doesn’t hear about success because it is business as usual. It is like looking at car wrecks and damning the highway system.

"Be for Ron Paul or the Hildebeast ......WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?"

That's the funniest and most backwards thing I have ever heard. They are opposite on pretty much EVERYTHING.

It's Guiliani and Hillary who don't seem that different. (pro-choice, open borders, pro-gay agenda, gun-grabbing, big government, etc, etc) And in case you didn't know, Hillary is not calling for the war to end, if i'm not mistaken she said the troops should be there til 2013. So her position is much more in line with Guiliani's, not Paul's.

"Also hidden: the apparent fact that many of the rag-tag teenage soldiers were trying to surrender as they were entombed."

I would say the enemy who waits TOO LONG to surrender, has waited too long...

In war, there isn't time to "adjudicate" each case, to determine who lives or who dies....

Well, we were attacked during WWII, so that was a justified war. Although, World War I was a different story. That’s why I said ‘the last 50 years’ in my previous post.

Hardly an “unprecedented military tactic”. I know it was done in WWII in the Pacific.

I didn’t know much about Ron Paul until recently. Sounds like he should team up with Kucinich.

One of my favorite places on the planet. I didn't know you had such great taste. I could eat at Zi'Ntonios every single day of my life were I allowed to do so.

I lived in Pozzuoli (just outside of Napoli) for three years during my transition from a pre-teen to a teenager (Navy brat.) That was when I first saw Sorrento.

I went back to that area in '04 to visit, expecting things to have changed quite a bit and was delighted to find that they had barely changed at all. :-)

Just kidding about all of the houses. Some Paulies have accused me of being a "war profiteer," so we joke about it. The Mods have given at least one of the accusers a vacation from FR for doing that.

If there were any truth to this at all, other leftist moonbats in Congress would have delightedly been all over this long ago. And Iraqis would have raised a flag on this.

It got some press coverage at the time. Not surprised to see Paul raise the warning.

I think looking back we can all agree that something was wrong with the first invasion of Iraq.

The only thing wrong with that intervention is that we let Hussein negotiate a peace rather than just killing him and making our own peace on our own terms.

That American ‘intervention’ has apparently come back to haunt us and Paul’s criticism of that war has, in retrospect, proved to be correct.

No, what has come back to haunt us was the weakness we showed in not erasing Saddam Hussein from the face of the earth. That failure has now been rectified.

Paul's criticism was not our failure to terminate Hussein - he criticized that war on the same stupid and traitorous grounds he criticizes this one: that he believes that America should always show weakness abroad at all times and wait to show strength until the weakness he advocates invites predators to attack the homeland.

His criticism was vile and pointless then and is now.

That said, I disagree with Paul’s angle of attack in this piece, a rare occasion where he truly does adopt leftist rhetoric. He’d be better off sticking to his principles of nonintervention rather than going down the same road as Michael Moore.

You view it as an anomaly in his rhetoric. What I see is a man who, at the time of writing, was not in Congress and not running for any office - a man who was therefore relaxed, unguarded and showing his true colors.

Well, I'll just let you kids enjoy the guffaws, jokes, and posting half-truths on a lifelong conservative who is fighting the good fight. It's all moot anyway, right? Paul's not going to win, right? Strange then, that the poster posted at least a half-dozen stories without links to Paul in the span of 24 hours.

In the meantime, Paul's campaign will continue to grow exponentially, and when he wins a couple of primary states or tops $20 million for the 4Q, that's when I will grab the popcorn to watch heads exploding.
