Paul walks a tight line on this issue. I agree with much of what he says in broad terms, but he edges into Ron Paul territory from time to time. The Reagan model works best, which has been our policy though much of our history...have the unquestionably biggest, most advanced presence and use it to force other’s hands. Restraint....Peace through strength.
Not sure why it should be such a point of intense argument since we’re going to end up with Ron Paul’s foreign policy anyway. It’s more a matter of doing it in a manner where it can be done in a controlled and somewhat orderly matter or in horrible mess where just getting the troops home is a struggle.
