Ron Paul has been warning (for many years) that the U.S. becomes less safe and more prone to a terrorist attack with its never-ending military interventions in other countries. We should be minding our own business and defending this country instead. We have to stop stirring up trouble overseas.
What was the reaction to Ron Paul's warnings?
Rudy Giuliani notoriously summed it up by claiming to have never heard of something called "blowback":
Of course, the U.S. government has not stopped its interventions since the Giuliani debate. In fact, Obama, riding his campaign slogan of "Change" has bombed seven different countries and has taken part in one failed "regime-change" operation after another.
Now that Russia has decided to clean up the U.S. regime-change operation in Syria, American officials are warning Russia (and you can't make this up) of blowback!!
U.S. intelligence officials warn that Russia's military intervention in Syria has stirred the wrath of Islamic radicals who may retaliate by staging terrorist attacks inside Russia...
If only U.S. officials would stop poking hornets nests in the Middle East themselves! If only they would stop putting us Americans in danger.
We need, as Ron Paul has been advocating, a foreign policy of non-intervention and peace.
