Ron Paul: Why Obama Is Wrong on Libya

Congressman Ron Paul, a member of the House Foreign Relations Committee and honorary chairman of Campaign for Liberty, criticized President Obama’s decision to impose a no-fly zone over Libya in a video shot earlier today.

In the video, Congressman Paul argues that:

  1. The action is an act of War.
  2. The no-fly zone is unconstitutional because Congress has not authorized it, a point Senate Foreign Relations Committee Ranking Member Richard Lugar agrees with.
  3. President Obama has illegally seceded U.S. sovereignty to the United Nations.
  4. The United States cannot afford the financial burden of more military action in the Middle East.

    the problem is usa president thinks its his job to get involved in everyones problems.
    because he thinks usa is the world leadder… and because of the war mongering bankers and ppl who profit from war, fund the president and his cronies.

    I usually agree with Ron, but here I really think the international community should do something. This isn’t just meddling in internal affairs of other nations, this is stopping a billionaire idiot from killing his people with his army. Now I understand his point here is that Obama should have gone to the congress, and I’m all for that procedure, but this evil is definately a necessary one. Contrary to the Iraq situation.


    humanitarian missions my ass! why the fuck are we in another war- ron paul needs to be preisdent- barry sataro is george bush in a costume- impeach him for not rvrn being an american citizen, jail george bush ( both of them clinton(both of those scum

    Agreed, Obama needed authorization from Congress to wage war not the UN. So why isn’t the Congress Sanctioning the President. How are we to enforce the rules if their is no penalty for breaking the rules.

    Ron Paul i love how u stand for truth justice and the true American way…i see America get torn apart…when the fore fathers meant America to be proud and strong and a place for others to emulate not hate. Imagine if the fore fathers were alive today and asked every American “What have u done to my beautiful country?” how would u answer? would u blame the government u let rule over u? would u blame tv that u turn on everyday? or would u say “Im sorry WE WILL BE STRONG WE WILL BE ONE..

    Ron I love ya man, but all i got to say is this…”That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingl

    Sometimes when important information is presented to us, it only takes two complete idiots to screw it up. It can even be an attempt at disinformation. Please ignore the ongoing flame war in these comments and just focus on Congressman Paul’s message.

  • KingBronzeL

    Basically we are going to be in…four wars…Germany lost WW2 and half half the fronts we are dealing with…lets just withdraw our troops and kick the un out and put our government back in line.

    As usual, Dr. Paul is correct.
