For James Campbell, a veteran and a volunteer for Paul's New Hampshire campaign, the order was reversed: it was foreign policy that first attracted him to Paul, and he latched on to the economics later.
While deployed in Somalia in 1993, "I saw firsthand the resentment and the fear that happens when you go in there and use a standing army as the enforcer," Campbell said. He was shot, received a Purple Heart, and was then deployed once again, this time to Bosnia. Once he came home, he recalled, "I was kind of lost until I heard Ron Paul."
Obviously another dope smoking pinko commie.

Hmm, he went to Somalia when half of the capital city was controlled by AlQaida, and the rest of the country was divided up into about a dozen little warzones ruled by warlords.
From that he deduced that a "standing army" is a problem?

There are everything from idiots to treacherous assholes even in the military.
Catch a clue.

So, you think it was a good idea to be in Somalia and Bosnia?
