Ron Paul says we brought 911 on ourselves, again. He is a disgrace.

Ron Paul: the Lyndon LaRouche of the 21st century. The man is a joke.

Paul and Bachmann. Thankfully, neither one of them will get the nomination.

So what exactly did we do to Afghanistan prior to 9/11?

Or Pearl Harbor prior to Dec 7th, 1941?

When it comes to international politics in general, and islam in specifics, Ron Paul is an idiot.

They’ve been at war with the west for at least decades if not centuries. Maybe Paul doesn’t remember the first WTC attack in the early 90’s??

It is one of the fundamental errors of Isolationist Liberterianism. The belief that if you leave someone alone, they will not attack you. More reality based Liberterians believe in a strong defense.

He’s probably also got an explanation for how we caused the Talibunnies to blow-up the ancient Buddhist statues.

"Or Pearl Harbor prior to Dec 7th, 1941?"

Japan attacked Pearl Harbor for the trade embargo (Oil and Metal) we placed on them for their atrocities in China. They believed by attacking us we would fold like a cheap tent.

They were wrong...

Paul should read a little history. Invade and try to conquer for Allah is WHAT they do, WHO they are. Paul should stick with subjects he may know something about.

All he is in the Presidential race is a spoiler.

What a Pig. Right up there with Ward Churchhill, he claimed that the September 11, 2001 attacks were a natural and unavoidable consequence of what he views as unlawful US policy, and he referred to the “technocratic corps” working in the World Trade Center as “little Eichmanns”.

The Japanese had already allied themselves to the Nazis (for a wide variety of reasons). Sure, the oil and metal embargo hurt ~ left them with a couple of months supply of both ~ enough to run their economy on a normal basis or launch an attack in SE Asia for the purpose of seizing the oil resources in Indonesia and Malaya. To do that they had to disable American (and Allied) military resources in the Pacific ~ hence the attack on Hawaii, the attack on the Philippines, and the attack on Singapore.

Filipinos could probably make an argument that their entanglement with the United States led the Japanese to attack them. But we'd dismiss that as crazy talk. It was pretty clear the Japanese were after their women!

Right guys?

Well to start with we armed the mujahideen
Arabic mujahidun (“those engaged in jihad”). Now they are killing our young people.
It was then that OBL and his ilk figured out we were totally clueless as to their REAL intentions.

Yes, nothing new. He also has said a number of times we should listen to what the terrorists have to say and take it to heart in order to understand them and stop further attacks. Nevermind the fact they have attacked people completely unprovoked simply because they do not adhere to radical Islam, including other Muslims, who were simply minding their own business and not “intervening” at all.

Isolationism as national policy in the face of external global interventionism, imperialism never served to protect anyone, prevent invasion or attack. As only a few illustrations, see Ancient Israel by Rome, USA by Jap Imperial Forces, Nazi Germany, USA by Islam in the '90's, 21st Century, post-911 era.

Whatever merits in political views, issues Paul has as 2012 Republican candidate are more than negated by his mypoic, head-up-his-*ss delusions of global strategy, politics.

Per Ron Paul: We should have let Gen. Gates and his troops confiscate the guns and gunpowder stored at Concord. Once the British confiscated all the guns and gunpowder in the colonies they would have had nothing to fear from us and would have left us alone.

This is simply not true.

Bin Laden/AQ were looking for an excuse to finish off 1993’s WTC bombing.

If AQ really wanted to help their own people, they’d create jobs for them. Real jobs. Not paying them to sit around. Not teaching them to eviscerate Jews and Christians.

But this IS the problem, isn’t it? It’s not about our ‘intervention.’ It’s about our very existence.

Thankfully his anti-Semitism is getting some attention. He is such a nut that a little popularity has gone to his head and he says these evil things more openly.

I think Ron Paul knows he isn’t getting the nomination(Thank God) so he is just letting loose with his insanity..he has been on a roll this weekend with the crap that has come out of his mouth..all he has to do now is say that he hates babies and puppies and that will pretty much finish him off. Everyone knows he’s nuts, the last few days should pretty much confirm that to anyone who even considered voting for him

I think of of a great man like Rick Rescorla, the thousands who died on 911; the men and woman in uniform who have sacrificed for our country; then get very angry hearing Ron Paul mouth his lies and garbage.

“After 9/11, (people said) ‘Oh yeah, it’s those very bad people who hate us,’ but 15 of (the hijackers) came from Saudi Arabia,” said Paul.

That has always bothered me. Saudi Arabia has been set free of responsibility even after its been proven they raise funds for our enemies.

Nothing. Except giving them the weapons to defeat the invading Soviets. Kind of the most stark definition of "ingrate" in history.

Paul and Bachmann. Thankfully, neither one of them will get the nomination.

I read the article twice and didn't see Michele Bachmann referenced. So who the F do you think you are to compare a legitimate conservative tea party hero to a nut case like Ron Paul?

Go troll elsewhere, Bachmann has more balls than 95% of the entire Congress, maybe that is what scares you...

Thanks to Lt Presley O'Bannon, I have one of these hanging in the closet.

"Marine Corps history states that a sword of this type was presented to Marine First Lieutenant Presley O'Bannon by the Ottoman Empire viceroy, Prince Hamet, on December 8, 1805, during the First Barbary War, as a gesture of respect and praise for the Marines' actions at the Battle of Derne."

Admiral Yamamoto tried to warn them and they wouldn’t listen. So their strategy was to seize every strategic post before we could mobilize and hope we got tried of killing them to get them back. He was wrong, we were just warming up.

Paul would have just surrendered
