Ron Paul: America Is Not the King of the World


Neil Cavuto: There are frequent calls for America’s military to start intervening, should it? Ron Paul, the former Republican Congressman and presidential candidate, says no, be careful, be very careful. Congressman, what do you think of this?

Ron Paul: I think it would be foolish, I think what we have been doing for so many years has been very foolish. I think that they ought to try to understand what blowback is all about and what the CIA has talked about and what Michael Scheuer has demonstrated so often in his work in the CIA. It’s just way too much, it hurts us to no end. One of the points I made when I gave my last little talk on the House floor, was that one of the trends that we’re probably facing was violent anti-Americanism, and it’s engulfing the world, and I think this is what’s happening over there. We have a mess in Egypt now, and we don’t know exactly what we’re supposed to be doing in Syria, and we end up supporting the bad guys. And even Hillary had an expression for it: “How did we know the bad guys were going to get these things?” And I think what’s happening in Mali right now with these hostages spun off from us getting involved in Libya and getting rid of Gaddafi. So one thing leads to another, and I just think that all these problems that we have make my case very clear, that we should have followed the Founders’ advice of staying out of entangling alliances and staying out of the internal affairs of other nations, mind our own business and save a dollar now and then, because we’re flat out broke.

Neil Cavuto: Well, the argument you get back, as you know, Congressman, is that we’ll regret that, because we essentially give the bad guys free run. Now the argument against what they were just claiming is that, well, terrorist are not idiots, they can pack up and leave. So if things get dicey for them in Afghanistan or Pakistan, apparently they move to Mali or Algeria or what have you. But they seem to be pretty good at movement. So I guess the bigger question is, should we do anything about that, or do we just let them brazenly grow unobstructed.

Ron Paul: Well, what we have to decide is why we have the problem. If we come down on the side that it’s spontaneous and they hate Americans, there’s Al-Qaida that kill us and they don’t like our prosperity and they don’t like our freedoms, maybe we should keep chasing them. But if the problem of these threats towards us and the disruptions is because we’re involved, then the answer is to be less involved.

Neil Cavuto: But what if it’s a little bit more than that, Congressman? I know you and I had a chat about this before; what if they really do hate us, they hate everything we stand for, and they really are all about … whatever our overtures towards the Muslim community are like, that they’re all about disgruntles, they just can’t stand us, they want us dead.

Ron Paul: Well, they might ask the same question, what if we didn’t hate Muslims? I mean, we have to build up a lot of hatred for us to go 6,000 miles away and kill people with drones, and this is where the conflict is coming. We have to beat the drums of war and this hatred that we have to go over and do these things. And then, all of a sudden, we have an epidemic of suicides of American soldiers who come back feeling, “What am I doing over here shooting these drone missiles, and little kids are dying and innocent people dying”. And now more people die from suicide, our soldiers are committing suicides. So I think it’s a failed policy, it doesn’t accomplish anything, and we don’t understand it. As long as we don’t want to look … we’re either in denial or we don’t want to understand it. But the CIA actually helps us on this to explain why there is retaliation, and if we don’t accept that, this is going to get much worse. And there are predictions that right now just because they haven’t hit us here at home, doesn’t mean that they’re starting to like us anymore. I think the problem is growing, it’s going to get a lot worse as long as we think we’re the king of the world.

Neil Cavuto: Ron Paul, thank you very much, I think.

  • Give this fucking idiot Paul to the Jihadis and his scrawny ass will soon learn how much they hate us!

  • America thinks it’s king

  • Israel is King of America.


  • The Ron Paul Movement is very much alive and growing. The Freedom Movement has many Generals, and we will support them all, no matter what party or govt they may be in. Keep it it up Liberty, teach the youth, and the misinformed. You, the informed are making a difference. GO LIBERTY.

  • I’ve already heard people over the last couple of weeks due to this Obama and his firearm ban/restrictions make this statement of regret for not looking logically at Ron Paul

  • the whole world loves Ron Paul, the whole world wants no wars..
    except american..

  • i noticed that too. I think he was making an awkward “joke”. “Thank you for the interview– i think.” It’s a rare day when a political figure tells it like it is, it’s hurts msm brains to hear so much truth in 5 minutes =D. Neil Cavuto should be thanking his lucky stars.

  • I am really sad he didnt make it. I feel like the prliminaries were rigged because SOO MANY people supported him. But anytime i am looking for inspiration, I will listen to a speech he gave or watch an interview he did. He reminds me there is still good in the world!

  • fox news fake news except ron paul

  • Thats the kind of people in the media? lol

  • Ron Paul telling the truth as always! MUCH LOVE!

  • They hate us over there because of our heavy sloppy handiness. Shooting them with guns,bombs and drones..Why are retarded Americans having such a hard time understanding this simple fact??? Why Why Why???

  • “Thank you very much… I think.” What a fucking rude thing to say as a congressman of ~20 years hangs up the phone. What a prick.

  • “Thank you very much… I think.” What a fucking rude thing to say as a congressman of ~20 years hangs up the phone. What a prick.

  • Our Hijackers depend on Blowback to stay alive.

  • This is part of America’s judgment. DEAL with the fact that the awakened one’s among us haven’t risen above the enemy. America is basically the bride of Babylon. Learn what this means and get wisdom.

  • Abortion/war ~ I wouldn’t purposely fund either of those things, but I do just by working. They should start showing the pay deductions in picture form; maybe little stick figures depicting our individual contribution to the body count. Abortion should be “legal” and left to individual choice, but fucking pay for it yourself people.

  • …at being an authoritarian sociopath.

    Good for him.
