    Don’t let the Bush wars go on without accountability and trials for the criminals responsable.The Obama administration must have the Department of Justice do their sworn duty to prosecute for the crimes of the past Bush administration criminals. Go to this web site and see what crimes I’m talking about and the reasons there is reluctance to prosecute…..it is a long but very informative read…………

      Apparently you will support the next Presidents Justice Department going after Obama for Afghanistan crimes and crimes yet to come related to his overseas contingency plans? Sheep.

    Wrong on what, exactly? Ron Paul supporters ARE the ones who have done the research, you fool. You have clearly done nothing but mindlessly listen to the government and mainstream media’s load of bull.

    We should bring much of our armed forces home, but probably not all. Some presence in some places is needed as a deterrent. Situations could arise where our security is at risk and we would need to act swiftly. We could not do so if everything militarily was based in the states. I think we would become an easier target at home if we didn’t have some outposts. Having said that, I do agree that we get involved in too many areas that we shouldn’t. For instance, we should not have much of a presence in Europe. The countries there are fully capapble of defending themselves. We often get a lot of negative press for being there. None of those Europeans countries complain about the money our troops spend there though.

      With all due respect-
      outposts make the best targets. Look at a list at all the terrorist attacks that have killed Americans from the 1980′s onward. Beirut. Kenya. Tanzania. Somalia. The USS Cole, off the coast of Saudi Arabia.
      What Dr. Paul is saying is that bringing our boys home will not only beef up our national defenses, it will stop pissing everyone else off, and we will in effect be a harder target to hit and a less desirable target to hit.
      Sounds good to me.

        GTO- I can’t disagree that any outpost could be a potential target. But, are you willing to wait until they’re on our shores before practicing a minimal amount of readiness? Also, in order to accomplish open trade with other nations we have to provide at least some sort of protection as these goods move. Who will want to export from here if pirates steal the fruits of their hard work with no recourse. I hope we would not open up a need for an expanded UN role.

          I agree with that, we definitely don’t want the UN getting involved in…practically anything. When I was stationed in Camp Bucca detainment facility in Iraq, though, and I talked to self admitted terrorists about why they hate America, their answers usually were something along the lines that Americans were too intrusive on foreign soil. Scaling back on overseas bases and wars then, most likely, would soften foreign aggression in the first place. It also might increase the ability of armed forces to respond to crisis at home with more manpower, weapons, and equipment, in effect creating a maximum amount of readiness. We could also maintain a less intrusive presence by making port in foreign bases (as opposed to indefinitely occupying parts of countries with far flung American military bases).
          There are also various nations like Sweden with tiny defensive armies and a policy of neutrality that trade expansively with many nations throughout the world without many Captain Jack Sparrows (sorry, just watched one of those movies) stealing their stuff.
          I think Ron’s ideas make sense, but I’m not a very politically minded guy and don’t know a whole ton about stuff. I think neutrality would be worth a try, though. At least Ron is stimulating intellectual debate about actually making a real change, which is the best thing for us now.

    Mr. Paul i just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for standing up and doing whats right. Not many American politicians can say they have done that. You have certainly got your head on straight when it comes to the big picture. Down with the stimulus package! P.S. i am a Canadian.
