IT'S ALL ABOUT FOREIGN POLICY

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."
~ Mohandas K. Gandhi.


The most interesting thing to happen for many years in US politics. In decades, even. Maybe even in a century or two:





"The American people didn't go in. A few people advising this administration, a small number of people called the "neoconservatives" hijacked our foreign policy. They're responsible, not the American people. They're not responsible; we shouldn't punish them."


Well, actually, the American people have abdicated their civic responsibilities, so they are responsible. The media is also responsible, as the jackass Chris Wallace proves by his stupid comment about al-Q.

Ask yourself something: Which family of the American ruling elite has been very, very close to the bin Laden family for many, many years? Who is it that is a CIA asset from during the Afghan/Soviet war?

Wallace also acted as shill for the administration with his BS about bloodbath (like there's no bloodbath now) or about Iraqis that have assisted the Americans (like the US has welcomed Iraqi refugees with wide open arms). Those are all red herrings.

I suspect the hyena that's laughing throughout the debate is Giuliani the Freak.


"When we make a mistake it is the obligation of the people through their representatives to correct the mistake. No, we've dug a hole for ourselves and we've dug a hole for our party we're losing elections and we're going down next year if we don't change it. And it has all to do with foreign policy and we have to wake up to this fact."


Yes, foreign policy is the issue. It's all about foreign policy, so I'd like to know Ron Paul's position on the military-congressional-industrial complex, weapons give-aways (since the American taxpayer subsidizes weapons sales, the term is a huge misnomer) to genocidal and dictatorial regimes, and American participation in the Deep State.

Bush's arming of dangerous regimes and Dick Cheney's KBR-Halliburton war-profiteering are two examples of the foreign policy problem that the US must "wake up to".

Regarding honor, Governor Huckabee: You can't lose what you've never had.
There's more on this debate at Britain's Guardian.

Who won the debate on Rupert Murdoch's neoconservative channel?





Maybe it will be an interesting election year.

Exactly. He says they ought to have a foreign policy that says "we ought to mind our own business". Of course, this will exclude weapon sales to genocidal and dictatorial regimes like Turkey among others to commit the dirty work for this country, the U.S.

What about this: http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/

I hope it's not true.

Anonymous 1, I would like to hear Paul's position on the subject of the MCIC because I won't assume anything from statements that might be related.

Minding one's own business can be taken to mean not deploying forces but continuing to subsidize repressive regimes everywhere. When it comes to the MCIC, you're talking about a LOT of money. A lot of POWER. A lot of everything the MCIC pimps will not be willing to give up. And I doubt that the American people will be willing to give it up because it's America's industry. It provides a lot of jobs. A lot of people make their living from enabling the murder of others.

Anonymous 2, I think there is quite a bit that is true in the Zeitgeist movie. People should pay serious attention to it and begin asking hard questions and demanding hard answers.

There is something on the microchip here which describes the fast-growing, malignant tumors the implants cause as well as the conflict of interest between former head of HHS, Tommy Thompson, and his joining VeriChip's board of directors.

Follow the money trail.

And people wonder why I'm anti-capitalist . . . People should crack open The Communist Manifesto and make a comparison between the situation during Marx and Engel's time and the situation today.

Mizgin, have a look Mahmood Mamdani's book "Good Muslim, Bad Muslim, America, Cold War, and the Roots of Terror". Maybe You already know the book.

Thanks for the info, Dr. Kristiina. I had not heard of the book, but checked it out on Amazon.

It looks good. I think I'll have to get it.
