Skip to comments.Ron Paul on the airline plot : “They’re terrorists because we’re occupiers!”
Posted on 12/29/2009 9:24:17 PM PST by RobinMasters
Ive already written about how his isolationist garbage leads inexorably to nonsense like this, so let me just add two points. First, and most obviously, there is no U.S. occupation of Yemen or Nigeria. The only way the airline plot is a reaction to U.S. occupation is if you accept the jihadist premise that there are no Arab/Muslim nation-states but rather only one Islamic caliphate waiting to be born. Only in that way does the U.S. occupation of Iraq warrant a reprisal from, say, a Pakistani or Yemeni. And yet, needless to say, if Britain was attacked tomorrow and Obama pledged U.S. forces to assist in the reprisal, Paul would be the first guy to scream that we should scrupulously observe national boundaries and not go fighting another countrys battles for it.

Paul is an idiot on this. These Jihadists were against us LOOOOONG before we became “occupiers.”
Mr. Paul, if we are “ocuppiers”, oil would be $ 20.00 per barrel, or free.
They hate us because we are infidels,you dummy.
They were terrorists long before we set foot in the Middle East. They’ve just decided to turn their attention more on us, because we now have the largest presence there, and we decided long ago to throw our lot in with the Israelis, who they hate to distraction.
Ron Paul belongs in a beauty parlor working as a hair stylist
not as a U.S.Congressman saying anything about foreign policy
or how to fight and WIN a war . The man is a pathetic coward ,
the exact antithesis of the men and women that have made America great and strong and respected .
Mark for tomorrow.
*pops some popcorn and waits for the PaulBots to start flaming*
Ron Paul = Wrong Paul
Only seems fair.
Paul is a liberal cindy sheehan peace activist. An utter disgrace.
I'm not a republican. I'm registered as 'Independent' and I consider myself a conservative. I used to respect Ron Paul, and I don't think that we should be involved in as many foreign 'entanglements' as we are. However, we are not now, nor have we ever been 'occupiers.'
Is Ron Paul an America hater?
I doubt leavening Iraq, Afghanistan would make a difference. The world wide jihad would continue., The followers of the moon god have only one purpose in mind world domination.
Paul should be locked up in an insainasylum.
I fear Congressman Paul is giving Conservatism a bad name. He makes us look like idiots when he talks about auditing the Fed and now this crap. He’s an MD from Texas. What does he know about international or diplomatic issues? NOTHING. So “shut up, Ron..”
I agree. They have been doing this since the 600s. The only setback was in Catholic Spain and the Pope will pay for that some day...
Paul/Chomsky 2012? ;-)
