Yesterday, the topic of The Ron Paul Liberty Report program was "Arming The Kurds - A Dangerous Idea". On the one hand, we have our NATO ally, Turkey, who we're supposed to come to the defense of (unconstitutionally, of course). And on the other hand, there's the Kurds, who have long been seeking autonomy from Turkey.
President Trump has authorized the Pentagon to begin providing heavy weapons to the Kurds in Syria. But what if the Kurds turn those weapons on our ally Turkey?
Unfortunately, this web of insanity is not new. The U.S. federal government has been arming and supporting both sides of conflicts for many decades.
Here is Ron Paul on the House floor on Oct 14, 1981 addressing this very issue:
“...I believe that it should be a consistent policy for the security of this country that we provide security for this country and not try to be the policeman of the world, providing weapons for everybody.
As long as Americans remain indifferent to this, it will continue on. Those words by Dr. Paul were spoken 36 years ago.
"Hope & Change" didn't change a thing, and neither has "Make America Great Again."
