Who can forget the pivotal moment when Ron Paul stood on the stage and explained "blowback" to Rudy Giuliani, who did not want to hear one word of it:
It's now been a few years, and unfortunately much more blowback has occurred. There has been the creation of ISIS, the terrorist attacks in Europe and the refugees running away from U.S. and western plans for regime change in Syria and Libya.
Has Rudy Giuliani changed his mind? Does he now accept that a superior foreign policy would be one of peace and non-interventionism?
Unfortunately, the answer is No. Here are some recent quotes from Giuliani on areas of U.S. interventionism:
Giuliani's tune has not changed. He's as militant as ever.
Well, news came out in February that Donald Trump considers Giuliani as a very close advisor: "Rudy is a very knowledgeable friend. I consider his counsel very important," Trump said.
And today the news is that Giuliani is going to vote for Trump. He told the NY Post: “I support Trump. I’m gonna vote for Trump.”
This is rather curious. You see, there are a lot of people (including some libertarians) who are under the impression that Donald Trump is not going to be as militant as Bush and Obama. In fact, the Washington Post recently said in a big headline that Trump "outlines noninterventionist foreign policy".
Is Giuliani supporting and voting for a non-interventionist?
Is Trump really the non-interventionist that many of his supporters believe that he is?
Something isn't adding up here...
