From The Ron Paul Political Report, October 15 1991
During the Iraq war, American troops were instructed to use specially equipped tanks to bulldoze the trenches that held Iraqi soldiers- Not a single American was hurt, so meager was the resistance. Thousands of Iraqis, teenagers coerced into the army by the dictator Hussein, were buried alive, while the unprecedented military tactic was hidden from the public through media censorship. Captain Benny Williams, who Led the charge was awarded the Silver Star for his role. Also hidden: the apparent fact that many of the rag-tag teenage soldiers were trying to surrender as they were entombed.
boy this is all coming out at once...
kind of like someone was prepared in advance for it
What a crock of $hit. The enemy was given the choice, surrender or die. So it is in war.
He certainly speaks the propaganda of our enemies?
Actually, this has been floating around since 2007. It is coming to a head now both because he is threatening the Conservative candidates position, is smearing the Conservatives (did you catch his nasty attack on Bachmann?) and it was revealed he lied about not knowing or being the author (CSPAN video from 1995 he admitted writing them).
You want to play at war, you have to pay the piper.
Was it a war crime to seal japanese soldiers in their caves on Iwo Jima??
I don’t think so.
Iowa has no problem screwing us over with ethanol causing all of our foodstuffs to increase at an insane rate. It’s all about the lucre. They’ll probably vote zero, instead of paul and feel better about themselves.
Absolutely. Our son was there and it's much better the enemy died than not only our son but his brothers in arms.
Ron Paul can KMA!
Ron Paul is such scum. I’m ashamed that two of my brothers actually like him. I’m working on them, though...
Ron Paul is a POS and he can GTH.
I am now and always have been one for making the enemy die for their country.
I’m with Jaz - Racist Ron can KMA.
I have reposted this one for years, every time a paultard tries to defend him.
He was all over the talk shows at the time elaborating on this position.
Evidently, we were supposed to jump in with trench knives and fixed bayonettes.
Well, well, well, I’d say that between Ron Paul’s praise for David Duke and this latest load of horse manure about “U.S. War Crimes” in Desert Storm, it’s time for that effin lunatic to withdraw from the campaign and if he had any honor at all, resign his seat in Congress.
Burying enemy troops without a shot fired is very efficient.. and clean....
Hardly, all of this STUFF has been readily available. It’s time his supporters admit they are supporting an anti-American, anti-Semitic,Racist, U.S. Military hating, insane big mouth.
We know from wars fought in the past what teenagers are capable of doing in battle. Our troops should not be expected to be pc when engaged in war.
I always thought that Bush Sr did a great job with that war and I am still convinced he did. He minimized US soldiers life and cost $$$ to this country, while winning a resounding victory. It was a proud time to be Republican and American.
That was part of the reason I believed that his son GWB knew what he was doing, only to be proved wrong, painfully wrong.
Ron Paul?? There is no end of crazy sounding statements in his past. Who cares if Iraq soldiers died in that war? They invaded a neighbor country. Their job was to die or surrender.
(boy this is all coming out at once...
kind of like someone was prepared in advance for it)as a long
Paul has a long and documented history of being a nut case and making ignorant comments there must be tons of stuff laying around like this
Once again, RuPaul shows that dementia is a terrible disease.
Great find, partner!
