This month marks when the war-hawks in both parties assured us that we would never see the 16th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq.
Remember, this invasion was going to be a "cakewalk" and "we’d be greeted as liberators!"
To commemorate this sad anniversary, here is Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul’s speech opposing the “authorization of military force against Iraq.” This was not a declaration of war. Instead, it gave the President authority to launch a military action whenever he sees fit.
Dr. Paul debunks every claim that was made to justify getting into Iraq. If only Congress would had listened:
RON PAUL: I oppose the resolution authorizing military force against Iraq. The wisdom of the war is one issue, but the process and the philosophy behind our foreign policy are important issues as well. But I have come to the conclusion that I see no threat to our national security. There is no convincing evidence that Iraq is capable of threatening the security of this country, and, therefore, very little reason, if any, to pursue a war.
