You've got to understand how a lot of people in the US are.
Extremely xenophobic, would rather just glass a country than try to sort out any problems with them. Honestly, the federal government is probably
holding back compared to what your average redneck would do if given control of the military.
You can thank the Japanese for attacking Pearl Harbor, then you can thank whoever destroyed the twin towers. It's been burned into our minds and our
history books that we should lash out at anything that remotely attacks us, so we don't pay too much attention to what is happening in our back
So international recognition may not be the best thing for Ron Paul, he might be branded as a foreigner. Already people are accusing him of being weak
because he has a rational foreign policy. Try to explain to your average non-ATS American that it is NOT a good thing to have bases all across the
world and that the fact people want to attack us is not because "they hate our freedom".
It's ironic that most of the people I talk to that hate his foreign policies love his domestic policies, or visa versa. It's never both for someone
who is not a Ron Paul supporter, but for some reason they are interchangeable, I blame MSM propaganda.
