Currently you first why it's Ron Paul wrong I think the devil's in the details I mean what -- Ron Paul does take a a large knife and -- -- off the top says no more that's somewhere that he -- -- is blaming.
Us for 9/11.
His capture bin Laden is that the killing -- that those type of things we look around outrageous weren't available war -- by the way and it's not going away soon and Ron Paul's.
Talking about the -- doesn't end very dramatic simple all the simplified form.
Is is -- you -- critics oversimplified -- say -- he is ridiculous disastrous.
And it seems like he's saying we've spent 700 billion dollars we are making some enemies with her actions.
-- you make the case well first I wanted to through -- Dave colonel -- then the second -- about Ron Paul and that is that he blames us for 9/11 he really doesn't he's been very careful -- says one of the reasons we were attacked us because we and Osama bin Laden said because we have troops in Saudi -- that's right he wasn't the only one.
-- Wolfowitz Paul Wolfowitz deputy secretary of defense in an interview in May 2003.
Said that the great thing about getting troops out of Saudi Arabia where is that it's been a huge recruiting device for -- Qaeda that's a quote.
So in other words Wolfowitz admits one of Ron Paul's main points and Wolfowitz is one of the neo conservatives who pushed for the war in Iraq isn't -- one of the reasons they attack the people attack us we get the troops and their country output.
For a -- at that the issue of how wide 2000 marriage got killed has little to do with Saudi Arabia and everything to do it sounded laden and al-Qaeda.
The problem -- we've got a guy running for president I think to somebody who can and is getting poll numbers who over simplifies a foreign policy and a military policy.
In the time of war of course -- adjustments courts have been mistakes but this stop all investments stop helping Israel.
Cut its defense budget close all these bases.
Is beyond ridiculous particularly in the global war are let's do one at a time.
Close all these spaces we have.
Soldiers around the world 60000.
Germany 30000 Japan and South Korea why.
It did -- first of all these treaties involved and the prime defense issues yes we should.
We do so of course we -- to bring a high -- a lot of soldiers back spend more time in the US.
But there are places like North Korea like -- like South Korea and southeast danger that we need it because of our positions in the world.
That the but the yeah.
I'd like cable you defend themselves pretty volatile movement trading.
Some -- like with the South Korea because of what happened North Korea.
So so we would be involved -- mean it.
We don't wanna have to deploy -- -- -- because north Koreans are so belligerent South Korea's gross domestic product is forty times that of North -- they can defend themselves.
You're making a good point.
That they there's a treaty you can -- treaties treaties can be ended in fact the South Korean president when he when bush was in office.
Asked if we could finally end the war it hasn't ended the you know the Luther -- -- have.
More -- read combined than anyone in the world and the snow within 32 -- also.
All of forty million people troll true somewhat ended the -- -- -- they -- to help.
Whether we whether it could be small assure the problem I have is Paul says column renewable water that's my -- what point a -- secular when he says cut for a day.
Credit to Israel cut it to Egypt where they don't have anyone deserve credit to everyone does -- -- -- that we do different to what we're exist.
They -- -- -- -- because we -- we have with phenomenal.
A lot of good morning to -- to Israel's helping them stake in three billion dollars a year it's one and a half percent of their gross mr.
prodded -- government funding.
In training intelligence work is essential that.
The toward the Israelis and opera there is that they exist Paul would say stop it.
I think it is I think I had an but he is also Clinton also stop but the Egypt and Jordan -- -- -- and it could be 88 he -- appreciate that report these are going to -- once every one.
Everything stopped and that's my issue with them and it's funny reasonable approach to anything.
Okay but that the point is the Israelis are gonna say they want -- because people get things for free want those things that doesn't mean the without -- they were not survive.
There's a sustained case for non intervention that many political scientists some economists have made and it's a very strong case -- even decades for example 9/11.
How do you make the case and that obviously London and I write -- says we should have attacked them after 9/11 that was -- good reason to retaliate.
Part of the upset that led to 9/11 was US foreign policy.
If you stick your hand and hornet's nest hornets are gonna bite you also can't you can that you can't sit in house and wait for the -- to -- to keep that going bust let's talk about I ran.
We're now sitting in the house they're building a nuclear device may most may be probably.
Object probably Rick Santorum says we should bomb them before they do it he's is wrong as this is congressman Paul we we we can't we cannot do -- -- -- war in ten years.
And then finally I'm -- -- congress -- -- thought we can live with -- them what what our choice either we -- them or think we -- -- -- that we live with the Soviets -- delivered them they're.
There is there the problem we have is that Iran's stated policy of destruction of Israel.
Beyond the killing of Americans in Iraq.
Any association they have with Iraq it's a very dangerous unsettling country who openly supports Hamas and Hezbollah -- is -- -- state.
And you that it's very difficult to let them have that bit like colonel you listen live most your life not lived all my life -- a world of which two countries had thousands of nuclear weapons and each other.
The idea that Iran could get a couple of nuclear weapons and -- -- and Israel which has over a hundred and somehow not face retaliation is absurd.
The Israelis have second strike capability we have three nuclear arms -- that leads to.
Well what tree that's my issue with Iran -- Enron and that's why they won't do it so what it it if we're not gonna go and take.
They can now we have sanctions.
I don't think that we have many options we have country much bigger than Iraq to we've -- the transitional parliament at least they -- they dictate a lot so what we'll get -- into our economic.
Is this pressure religious pressure this Chinese this -- there's an awful lot we can do.
That would economic that would not doing the last thing we should be doing we've talked about his award to Ronald by the way bombing Iran's.
This so buried it would keep nuclear people candy we didn't do we agree on -- on outlook -- just bring up if Ron Paul is as you and so many Republicans say just so wrong on this how come.
He gets so much support as we'll see here from -- -- -- do you fit all the other candidates put together so they're saying that.
I'm on the right track they're sick and tired of those wars.
They're sick and tired of the nation building in the policing activity he got 71% of the money for military if it more than John McCain in the last Filipino food first -- -- the military is not a voting bloc.
And it didn't go demand -- what are they know that they're supporting and already it's it's because when somebody's in the united states military army Marines.
All of them.
This is not does what they afford.
Therefore they always part of all right.
Or secondly that because you get support vote means that -- right to nice thing to say I've got a lot more military guys -- hasn't been there for.
Everything I'm saying because the military's back -- meet individually.
I'm right to all -- -- it is if we're really important and interest in indicator yet that people when they get to vote with their money which is one of the biggest vote you do.
Are boring for Ron Paul your -- -- 00 give money in other words you.
It's one thing to say -- I like someone that's another thing to pull out your wallet and actually government -- do you cherry picking we don't know him for example look.
What -- what sergeant Jones who sends ten dollars.
Which part of the policy -- he supports Apollo he would that the governor does OK I want to an offer that's -- -- other controversy apart he says stops spine.
Close the blinds dig a hole I get it.
Of course you can stops buying back we got -- -- a lot more aggressive response we have that it's a very dangerous world.
How -- -- there we -- -- -- lot argued but we are in the middle of -- war on very very bad guys and you have to have some idea what they're doing.
From my standpoint we have to actually be doing.
More not less he can't dig a hole and -- -- -- for that.
Which is what the congressman wants to David I undertake this kind of -- you need spine depends whether you're going to be going to wars -- -- need war's in need spying I'm just saying.
How do you reduce the probability he and I agree that you can't reduce the probability -- -- so how do you do it best I say it's by not.
Upsetting those people those other countries by intervening in their countries he intervene in their firms trying to -- how to do it.
By the way even though -- -- and I agree are not going to war with Iran in fact.
Sanctions the kinds of things -- -- -- government's pushing really are a first step towards war and it's very nervous making.
Figured -- -- if that's that's not that's my problem that would appall and his supporters it's do nothing.
Under the sometimes -- of the trade means we talk could want commitment to try you have to try to in fact in some manner.
Whether it's intelligence with economic people who I've stated.
An effective kill Americans as Iran has.
And have stated the destruction of your friends Israelis you just can't sit there it is disingenuous -- oversimplification.
Which is my huge my biggest argument with the congress.
