Ron Paul’s Non-Interventionist Foreign Policy is Most Probable Path to Peaceful Relations (tags)
The proposal by the Sen. Ron Paul for President 2012 campaign is for U.S. foreign policy to change from primarily military interventions and long term occupations to a strictly non-interventionist foreign policy without engaging in any further military occupations or maintaining overseas military bases. The Ron Paul 2012 non-interventionist foreign policy plan is for the U.S. military to be utilized for defensive operations only. Our nation’s security does not require any overseas operations in order to be properly defended in the U.S. domestically. Proper defense allows for and encourages domestic U.S. military bases to be maintained, though does not support overseas bases to be maintained.
A `Dumb War': Taking Stock of the Iraq Invasion (tags)
With its invasion of Iraq, the United States rid the Iraqi people of a tyrant. But it also broke the law and destroyed tens of thousands of lives. With the release of close to 400,000 Iraq logs by WikiLeaks and the coming publication of George W. Bush's memoir, it is time to take stock of a war that was catastrophic for Iraq and America's standing in the world.

Bungles, Ghosts and Damage Control (tags)
The Whitehouse is in damage control over the bungled execution of Saddam Hussein. The hurried execution backfired in the worst possible way; a vanquished leader should never be allowed to continue his work from the ‘grave’. Anthropologists are familiar with appeasement rituals and ceremonies for the dead, which are common to numerous cultures. In the wake of Saddam’s bungled execution these curious rituals begin to make sense.

BREAKING: NIGHTLY SHOCK NEWS (tags)
Tony Snow, White House Press Secretary, gave away a secret of 9-11 today in his own words. And I quote: “There was no operational link between Saddam Hussein and 9-11." (aka Al Qaeda Bin Laden.) We should remember that both Bush and Rumsfeld wanted both Udday Hussein and Saddam Hussein targeted on September 11, 2001 right after the WTC was hit. It was because both Udday and Saddam knew in advance of the 9-11 Black Op and the plan to use Bin Laden as the patsy. The evidence to back this up exists so click to see Udday Hussein’s letter to Putin (CLICK) and the Stephen Cambone (CLICK) notes.

Bush's Cheap Mercenaries (tags)
President Bush's unilateral, preemptive war against Iraq is the worst foreign policy decision in the history of our country.

To occupy Iraq would instantly shatter our coalition, turning the whole Arab world against us."

Under International Law, regime change isn’t a legal cause for a war. This is why Bush and his poodle, Blair, had to “fix” the intelligence around the policy.

Who's Better Off? (tags)
I don't always agree with Ron Paul (but then who always agrees with any one individual, dittoheads excepted) but I appreciate his consistency in promoting true conservative ethics. Unlike nearly all republicans these days he doesn't merely steal the rhetoric to act as a cover for his agenda. He appears to actually believes in the ideological principles that are found so often in conservative rhetoric. As the republican party continues to fracture I think it is important to focus on individuals with some measure of integrity and honesty to contrast against the corrupt aristocrats running the government whom have not given any thought to benefiting people's lives nor shown any concern for the problems facing the people of the united states. -- tc

These Democrats want to have it both ways. If the war goes well -- a lot of them voted for war with Iraq, didn't they? But if the war does not go well, many of the very Democrats who voted for the war resolution will have emerged as leading spokesmen for the anti-war position. A vote for the war, surrounded by Neville Chamberlain foot-dragging, is a fraud.

Schwarzkopf : Rumsfeld and the people around him lack the background to make sound military judgments
"Candidly, I have gotten somewhat nervous at some of the pronouncements Rumsfeld has made," says Schwarzkopf. Rumsfeld worries him. "It's scary, okay?" he says. "Let's face it: There are guys at the Pentagon who have been involved in operational planning for their entire lives, okay? . . . And for this wisdom, acquired during many operations, wars, schools, for that just to be ignored, and in its place have somebody who doesn't have any of that training, is of concern."
