Rand Paul: Iran Wants Nukes Because It “Feels Threatened”
David Horowitz's NewsRealblog ^ | Calvin Freiburger

Posted on 02/16/2010 2:05:11 PM PST by Michael van der Galien

It turns out that crackpot Ron Paul’s son Rand can understand why poor, innocent Iran might want nuclear weapons—they feel “threatened” by big, bad America (hat tip to Rand Paul: Too Kooky for Kentucky for the video):

Kidnapping British sailors on different occasions and holding them for mock trials doesn’t sound like their scared.

my my, they feel threatened because we will take their oil, like we did in Iraq?

I wonder what the 12th Imam thinks about it.

QUESTION:"You're basically what I would call a chip off the old block. Your policies are basically identical to your father, correct?"

ANSWER:"I'd say we'd be very very similar. We might present the message sometimes differently.. I think in some ways the message has to be broadened and made more appealing to the entire Republican electorate because you have to win a primary." ~ Rand Paul on Alex Jones, 5/21/09

“This is ground control to candidate Paul.”

Yup. Done.

I suggest Palin starts to distance herself from Rand ASAP.

What I always notice is how these people - radicals - are quite honest about their real views. Sure, they spin and stuff, but they’re also sharing their real views and agendas with the rest of us. Only the blind can’t see that.

From Iran’s *perspective*, they probably do feel threatened. I have no idea what Rand Paul is all about, but just to acknowledege that perception doesn’t necessarily make him a crackpot.

I move to amend this story to “It turns out that crackpot Ron Paul’s crackpot son Rand...”

Uh-oh. I was keeping an open mind about Rand, giving him the benefit of the doubt.

Looks like the apple does not fall far from the tree after all.

Can any of you kinds folks show we were any of that "stolen oil" might be? Has Halliburton built that pipeline in Arghanastan yet?

Coo Coo for Cocoa Puffs!

Israel as a “disgraceful blot” that should be “wiped off the face of the earth” - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

He said: “Anybody who recognises Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation’s fury,”

Um Rand, of course they feel threatened. They've threatened the destruction of a number of nations, and that didn't go over too well with said nations.

And of course it doesn't hurt that they have a psycho paranoid nutjob in charge.

It hasn't been a good week or so for Libertarians disguising themselves as Republicans.

They keep blowing their cover by slipping up and saying goofy stuff in public.
