    Ron Paul is the president America deserves, not the one that America wants.

    US FUNDS THE TALIBAN????

    One of the most important issues today is the war in Afghanistan-Pakistan and the fact that US
    Military Aid to Pakistan is being used to fund the Pakistani ISI which is in turn funding Taliban
    and Al Quada fighters. While this has been reported sporadically in the media for whatever
    reason political pundits on the left and right have effectively ignored this issue.

    Joe Klein in an article for Time, August 9, 2010, p. 19, has written an article that every American
    citizen should go to their library and read, he writes,

    “The commanders are unanimous in their belief that the ISI is running the show….And so,
    despite professions of alliance with the US by Pakistan’s then dictator Pervez Musharraf, a
    decision was made to keep the Taliban alive. A spigot of untargeted military aid from the George
    W. Bush Administration helped fund the effort. A commander of the vicious Haqqani Taliban
    network tells Waldman that their funding comes from ‘the Americans–from them to the
    Pakistani military, and then to us.’ Waldman reports that the commander receives from the
    Pakistanis ‘a reward for killing foreign soldiers, usually $4000 to $5000 for each soldier killed'”.

    American tax dollars if not directly, then indirectly are being used to fund the Taliban and put
    a bounty on American boys and girls head… Makes one wonder why the establishment right
    or left is not reporting on this? If the right is covering for
    the mistakes of the Bush administration…why is the establishment left not reporting on this???
    …this is the most important issue of the day…we will never win a war where if not directly then
    indirectly the US is funding the opposition!!!!

    No Win War???

    The New American for November 9, 2009, has an interesting article on General Barry McCaffrey’s statement that the US “faces 10 more years of war in Afghanistan” and that the US should “focus upon a long and expensive nation-building process for Afghanistan’s tribal culture.” There seems to be a mindset in the establishment for the US to maintain a long term presence in the MidEast.

    For a long time, the US has operated in the region through hidden agendas. In his book, The New World Order, Mr. Pat Robertson, states that George Bush 1 suggested that the fate of Kuwait was not the main issue, “launching the New World Order was the main thing.” Mr. Robertson further writes, “By words and by silence, the United States flashed Saddam Hussein a green light” … to move into Kuwait and suggests this was used as a pretext for the 1st Gulf War…the implication is that Saddam was entraped with Green Light Diplomacy but there was a much larger agenda(hidden) for moving against Hussein………..

    For the situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the evidence suggests that the US and its allies are not doing all that can be done to win this war and there is some agenda for prolonging this conflict.

    The Advocate quotes Hillary Clinton(Dec. 7, 2009, p. 5A), stating it is “hard to believe” that no one in Islamabad knows where the al-Qaida leaders are hiding and couldn’t get them “if they really wanted to.”

    In the aftermath of 9.11, the bombing of the wrong escape route out of Afghanistan into Pakistan and the nighttime airlift by the US of the Taliban and Al Qaeda operatives that were allowed to escape(The New Yorker, Jan 28, 2002, p. 36); Gary Berntsen, the head of the CIAs team at Tora Bora said they tracked bin Laden and (he) “…could have been caught.”(Newsweek, Aug 15, 2005, p. 5); There is evidence that the Pakistani ISI is funding the Taliban and knows where they live but dont arrest them.(Time, Nov. 29, 2004, p. 44)

    There is a strategy by the Pakistani government “…which pays tribes and insurgent networks to attack each other with a goal of preventing any one group from getting too strong”.(US News, Oct 13/Oct 20, 2008, p. 24)(a strategy used by the Brits) Pakistani Ambassador, Haqqani presents evidence in his book that the Pakistani military and ISI make “…the pretense of arresting militants in order to get funds from Washinton. But it never shut down the networks.”(Newsweek, May 11/May 18, 2009, p. 29)

    The CIA never takes a junior partner role with any of these groups and we have to assume wants this to continue. The New York Times(Oct. 27, 2009) reports that Karzai’s brother is on the CIAs payroll and is a suspected player in the opium trade which finances the Taliban.

    All of this only contributes to a more chaotic situation which feeds a hidden agenda for a “no win war” and prolonged conflict at the expense of American boys and girls lives!!

    Well said Mr. Paul.
    I really like how he worded the part that our “Aggressor” policy will bring more enemies and more warfare. I wished more politicians had this similar idea. I think my country has enough enemies that we needlessly made… :/

    Actually the USA got a lot of enemies over the years… but only AFTER these “enemies” were attacked by the American army.

    Oh no no no NO no absolutely not, I don’t say that he is a corporate lackey in disguise. I say that he MIGHT be a corporate lackey in disguise. For all I know. I wish and hope that he is not and that he could win. But you do make a point, why didn’t he win this year? Does that prove he is not a corporate lackey in disguise then?

    “non-existant enemy” so true.. the US has no enemies, it never did. The US has created it’s own enemies.

    So the second you can’t compile a reasonable counter-argument, or disprove your opponent’s argument you will simply degenerate into using ad-hominem?

    Ah yes, and it just happens to be so that during the last 12 years US is only invading/”liberating” countries with significant oil or mineral resources. How extremely convenient.

    The U.S. has all the straegic resources it needs, w/ only minor exceptions. The answer to your question is no. You are as much of an America hating lunatic as Wrong Paul.

    Ah yes, because US has never conquered countries that just happened to have significant strategic resources, or de-stabilized countries that have “strategic resources”.

    Having experienced the Like/Dislike votes being switched around (and screwed up) during the last day of Paulfest, there appears reason to celebrate that (today) we only have 29 dislikes versus 2,004 (now at 1,998). I wouldn’t be surprised if in a few days we see 2,004 Dislikes and 29 Likes. These are the kind of people who want to see the world go down the drain. They consciously or not work for The Masters. Check our latest video (portion of Thrive dealing with our Wall Street Real Aliens).

    You say he’s a corporate lackey in disguise? Well, first of all if that were the case they wouldn’t cheat him out of the elections, and second: if he’s elected and he is what you accuse him of, there will be a massive revolution!!!
    Do you remember Romania? They went too far and the people stood up… and the army chose the side of the people because they were also fed up with Ceaucescu. That will happen in the USA too.

    More people should do that. Your vote won’t count, but at least they’ll know that the people don’t tolerate what’s going on now.
