Terrorists `Just Hoodlums
The greatest threat to the nation, Paul said, is an overextension of the U.S. military and ``involvement in places we shouldnt be. Terrorism shouldnt be fought by waging war on nations, he said. Terrorists are ``just hoodlums and convicts, so to speak, but we incite them with our foreign policy, he said.

If this guy was any dumber you’d have to water him.
"And if we would stop convicting them, they wouldn't even be convicts! Once again, it's our fault!"
And women incite rapists by appearing outside without burkas.
Did anybody catch the interview where he said this? Because I want to verify this. Because...wow.
That's just stunningly ignorant.
The most dangerous aspect, of course, is the notion that this is all just a ‘law enforcement’ issue.
It’s a war, Ron.
‘Peace in our time” is still a bad idea.
We hear a lot now about how the effort has failed ... or we're done with our part .. or something like that ... but what would RP had done on 9/12 and following if he'd been CIC?
Yes, the video was posted here not too long ago.
What the heck do some “conservatives” see in him???
He is scary stupid.
Actually, I don’t disagree with his assesment, I’ve said the same myself, however, when you can kill hundres of innocents at one blow, does it really make any difference what their motivation is?
Well, so are they. And I don't believe they're conservatives.
“Hoodlums and convicts”, my eye. Why do most on the left and even some on the right dismiss the terrorist threat so easily? Thousands of ruthless, ingenuous terrorists are desperately trying to murder Americans - why is this a concern that just doesn’t rate for so many people?
You can find flaws in George Bush’s handling of the war on terror, but at least he’s willing to wage it. He has been serious about it. The more solitary he becomes in this, the more I appreciate him.
Yes, needs watering now and is not qualified to run for anything. I would not bother to water such a plant. Both parties in general, and the administration deny the historical record and institution of political Islam, Sharia law...it is quite perilous to invent concepts of Islam that are not true and base policy on them.
Obama is an Apostate Muslim...a link defining his life and the national security risk of having such a one in high-office is detailed here: http://www.freedomsenemies.com/_more/obama.htm
Muslims view Obama as first a Muslim and then as an apostate Muslim. He faces the death penalty in nearly the entire Islamic world..excerp from the above link. He was a Muslim for 27 years under the name Barry Soetoro, and coverted from Islam to Christianity as an adult..his church may not have been a legitimate Christian church. Lots of info on his church in the above link, and its disturbing creed. He adopted his fathers MUSLIM name about the time he became Christian as it had been recommended to him as a child to convert if he wanted to become the first US black President, why did he not retain his previous name?.....read the link. Here are some sobering thoughts: Barack Hussein Obama, identifying himself for some years as a Christian, was a Muslim for 27 years. His conversion to Christianity is murky AND, ask the question Is there anything to prevent him from potentially converting back to Islam shortly after taking his Presidential oath on a Bible/Koran? NO!! (Rep. Ellison of MI was allowed to take his oath on Thos. Jeffersons personal Koran (Jefferson had studied Islam in an attempt to understand the enemy during our first war as a country, the Barbary Wars). As an APOSTATE Muslim, any Imam in the world or thousands of Imams can issue a demand for his return to Islam, and, on refusal can issue a fatwa for his death... as POTUS there might be a tsunami of such calls from the Muslim World...the political leverage in either case is a clear, MASSIVE national security issue for the United States. One has to question the motives of the Dim party for presenting him for the candidacy. Other disturbing features of his life and social interactions are a potential dynamite keg as well. Read the above link. While our currency is debasing rapidly, nations are dumping our currency and not readily loaning us $1 trillion every 15 months by buying Tbills, the next administration will be financical beggars..and, Muslim political demand and pressure will be exponentially high. Dems and Reps and independents may be shocked if Obama is presented with conversion demands from the whole Muslim worldwide, and...and...succombs to them. The potential is rather jolting.
"We are getting aggravated."
"Yes, we are."
no hoods no hoodlums
“What the heck do some conservatives see in him???”
For some it may be his promise to bring back true Constitutional government. It’s an empty promise. It’s going to take a lot of bleeding and burning to fight our way back to where we should be on that.
For others, it’s just another way to dress up the cut and run pig without having to submit to the rest of the idiot leftardicnesses.
For more than a few, it’s a way they can pose as conservathuglians and help sow discord among the ranks of the enemy.
well, I think Paul is right. The only way to destroy the greatest nation on earth is to provoke us to destory ourselves. These thugs and criminals are incapable of doing it themselves.
And our foreign policy is not helping, supporting the Saudi criminals and Egyptian tyrants, plus, look at what is happening in Pakistan, 10 billion wasted to spread the military socialism and the money is spent against India and we expect terrorism to decrease? If I was a Pakistani citizen I would be upset over the support of the United States, financially and politically, to the criminal Musharaf who has thrown thousands of citizens and journalists and opposition leaders in jail and runs a socialistic military junta which is invested in most sectors of the economy with government imposed monopolies.
So, I think Paul is not so far off in his comments, in fact, I think he is correct.
The Paulites were out on threads earlier.
When the far left and fascist anti semites both suppport him as his anti war, anti Jewish, and 9/11 truthers (the gov. did it)propaganda fills his support sites.
Also L Ron Paul said he probably would not support the Republican nominee so:
Why are the L Ron Paul supporters allowed on Free Republic as they make Rudy seem like a pure conservative Republican.
