I see where you are going. Nobody wants to see a war in the middle east and it would seem that RP's ideologies would allow countries to do whatever
If we are not in other country (bases) or give financial aid of some sort, then it appears that we have no bargaining power and our word carries no
Truth is this, Ron Paul does not want to give hand me downs (financial aid) but he is pro economical trade. That said, cutting ties economically with
a country could be a good motivator for a country to "behave".
IMO, I also seem to read into RP's words that point out to "I don't care what they do over there, they are all grown adults", but I am not quite
sure that if he were President, he would allow a global crisis go happen entirely. I have a feeling that If anything of global importance were to
happen, countries of the entire world would unite to stop whoever is disturbing the peace.
The thing is, the right person has to be stopped and they have to be stopped for the right reasons.
If you have a group of 1000 men who instigate trouble in the name of a religion or in the name of their ethnic group, but really, they do NOT
represent that group, then you get rid of the 1000 men.. not the group they claimed to represent.
And if a country is to go to war, there is no reason to use illegitimate excuses. Most wars were fought under false pre tense. Don't take my word
for it though. Google "false flags", and you'll have historical facts about many battles, the cause spoken, the cause hidden and everything
Any way you look at it, if only you agree with half of what RP says, half is still better than all of what the other options say.
