    Please sign this petition on the White House’s website to stop funding and supporting rebels in Syria. This isn’t our war and it’s not our business…

    From Wikipedia( View original Wikipedia Article )

    Afghanistan has been the greatest illicit opium producer in the entire world, ahead of Burma (Myanmar), the “Golden Triangle”, and Latin America since 1992, excluding the year 2001.[1] Afghanistan is the main producer of opium in the “Golden Crescent”. Opium production in Afghanistan has been on the rise since U.S. occupation started in 2001. Based on UNODC data, there has been more opium poppy cultivation in each of the past four growing seasons (2004–2007) than in any one year during Taliban rule. Also, more land is now used for opium in Afghanistan than for coca cultivation in Latin America. In 2007, 92% of the non-pharmaceutical-grade opiates on the world market originated in Afghanistan.[2] This amounts to an export value of about $4 billion, with a quarter being earned by opium farmers and the rest going to district officials, insurgents, warlords, and drug traffickers.[3] In the seven years (1994–2000) prior to a Taliban opium ban, the Afghan farmers’ share of gross income from opium was divided among 200,000 families.[4] In addition to opiates, Afghanistan is also the largest producer of cannabis (mostly as hashish) in the world.[5][6]

    By the chaos in Middle East two doves are killed with only one shot: first-destroyed,weakend by endless civil wars the countries of Middle East cannot unite around Palestinian People for strong support against Israel-that was the only chance for palestinians to get just approach for their Problem,because US policy will tune with AIPAC[ Paul Findly ,,They dare to speak out"].Second-strong,prosper countries of Middle East will let to access oil on their terms.They could even say:,,We don´t want dollars any more-as they worth not much more than toilet paper.”But so called rebels or any other gang which wants to seize power will give oil on the terms of those who will help them to come to power.But if somebody in US thinks thus to get cheap gasoline-what a delusion!

    US government is not going to to learn either from Afganistan or Iraq,because it is a puppet government. Who pays the elections of all politicians including President-and even more important,who LETS them to be elected to begin with-that orders the tune.Chaos in Middle East-it is exactly what US government wants-at the expence of common US citizents,of course,but not for their good-though it claims othewise.For those who is in doubt US government will produce a bad terrorist with a bomb in his underwear pants caught while trying to board a plane-as a solid proof of threat to us,common citizens and a good excuse for taking our liberties away from us-step by step-for our safety,of course.By the way,how many high rank officials from theDepartment of Defence,CIA and others in charge were fired after 9/11?

    The only ones to benefit from any of these illegal wars has been the “Military Industrial Complex” and its connected investors. What a shameful, disgusting waste…of everything…especially humanity. Will it only end when we’ve totally destroyed the entire planet??
    Dr Paul has consistently supported the Constitution and fought against these “foreign entanglements”….He should/could have been our President!

    I personally know a Bush supporter who is still waiting for a welcoming parade in Iraq…I know lots of Obama Supporters who think Big Government will support their livelihoods..I am a Ron Paul supporter and I believe in the Constitution.

    Dr. Paul is right about this as he has been about so many issues. The man who SHOULD be President.
