G19G20, this blame America first policy you have is getting tiresome. We have allies. Think of them as friends. If we will not defend our friends, we are worthless. Kind of like pacifists in general. Worthless in a fight. Humans will fight whether provoked or not.
Saddam attacked and invaded an ally. We warned him. He could have left anytime during the 7 friggin months that we took to build up our forces, and did not. So we kicked him out by force.
He surrendered. Signed a cease fire agreement, one that he violated repeatedly. We let him slide. Probably way too long. Kind of like letting your dog chew up shoes without letting him know that is not allowed. So, 9/11 happened. Now, I know you believe that we did that to ourselves, but some sane people believe otherwise. Back in the real world, Saddam kept violating the cease fire, playing hide and seek with the inspectors, and even kicked them out.
After 9/11, we realized that one of the reasons that OBL thought he could attack us so blatantly, is that we were a paper tiger, thanks to Clinton pulling out of Somalia, and even Reagan pulling out of Beirut.
Well, the two guys most responsible for our current situation are dead. I'm thinking that is better than them being alive.
But that's only because I understand the situation better than you ever will. You want to talk about blowback, but you never want to realize that Iraq and Afghanistan were blowback for 9/11 and the violations of the cease fire. You are a jihadist apologist and and hater of America. I really don't care why. It is what it is, and you are what you are.
That being said and clearly understood, where the "F" are you coming from claiming that Senile Ronny didn't tweet that himself? What, do you think the demented old fool forgot all the crap he got for letting others write newsletters for him?
Whoever is tweeting for him doubled down on their idiocy.
Ghoulish Ron Paul doubles down on Chris Kyle, invokes Jesus
Ron has outed himself as either a lifelong ineffectual senile old fool that is disrespectful to those that sacrificed for America, or a useful invalid that some blame America first
puppeteer has shoved a hand up his ass once again to use him for their own propaganda.
So which is it. Is he a disrespectful pacifist cretin, or a doddering old fool easily manipulated by others.
Either way, aren't you glad he's just a retired politician today?
It's a shame, because if there is one thing America needs right now, it's a president willing to lead us through the austere times that are needed to pay off the debt.
I doubt Ronny was that guy more than ever today.
