Ron Paul: It’s Time to Get out of Afghanistan!

Date: 03/17/2011

    The War Powers Resolution of 1973 (50 U.S.C. 1541–1548) was a United States Congress joint resolution providing that the President can send U.S. armed forces into action abroad only by authorization of Congress or if the United States is already under attack or serious threat.

    If Ron Paul doesn’t run for president, and this utter insanity to continues, we may soon be joining Libya and Egypt’s quest for representative government. Let us hope it will not take 100 million armed citizens to make them see the error of their ways.

    ProgressiveInAmerica is a troll, you fools. Ignore him. You can find him on a bunch of RP videos talking shit. Thumbs up this to keep it at the top of the comments.

    The best part is what Dr. Paul says about the so called “fiscal conservatives” defunding NPR and claiming it as a “victory.” What a total sham, and the Dr. is on point, as usual…

  • ProgressiveInAmerica

    It figures the racist senile old poopie is attacking our troops and blaming America for 9/11. What a loser Ron Paul is!

    If we get out of the whole region and stay neutral like Congressman Paul says we should then we would in effect be cutting off almost the entire reasons groups like Al Qaeda use to recruit new members.

    The enemies of the USA are in Washington, not Afghanistan.

    to add: another thing that needs to be done is that we must divorce ourselves of the idea that we can totally eliminate ANY form of terrorism-be it the one we are talking about, or the IRA, or the late Tamil tigers. we can only curtail it so as to make it statistically insignificant.

    and I’m not saying that withdrawal will placate the terrorists: it will however deprive them of their PR base, since as I mentioned earlier, people aren’t as inclined to fight when they aren’t invaded.

    He is right about the “saving face” argument. It is basically arguing that is okay to kill people over pride. I’ve heard Bill O’reilly use this argument before and it kills me that this is the same guy who is on a crusade for Christmas. What a conflicting moral code these people follow.

    I’m no progressive, but:
    ” stated Koranic goal of an Islamic Caliphate”

    I never found any mention of that in the Qur’an-even after going verse after verse; nothing like it even (the need for a central “droid” of control). and no, most leaders don’t want one-they want to keep their power, not give it off to some guy in Istanbul or Baghdad. they’re greedier than you think.

    I do agree that that is ONE of the goals of some organizations however-like Al-qaedah or the Islamic brotherhood.

    There should be a Ron Paul Alert, that tracks when he is giving a speech and automatically changes the channel. Because everyone else on C-Span is crap!

  • SpecialGuy21

    Ron Paul should introduce a joint resolution to amend the Wars Powers Resolution to specify the conditions for declaring war and for military actions e.g. clear objective, clear enemies, popular support, etc.

    Dose anything you say matter to the people you say it to? or is what you are doing a waste of time these days? They let you sing, but the song is over, and the choice has been made for us already.
