Ron Paul Responds to President Obama’s Middle East Speech

LAKE JACKSON, Texas--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Ron Paul, a twelve-term U.S. congressman, member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and 2012 Republican Presidential Candidate, remarked on President Obama’s speech earlier today about the United States’ Middle East policy. Please see the statement below.

 

“The President gave a speech today about our foreign policy in the Middle East, and once again this administration has proven that it does not understand a proper foreign policy for America. When will our leaders finally do what’s right for America and rethink this irrational approach we’ve followed for far too long?

“Israel is our close friend. While President Obama’s demand that Israel make hard concessions in her border conflicts may very well be in her long-term interest, only Israel can make that determination on her own, without pressure from the United States or coercion by the United Nations.

“Unlike this President, I do not believe it is our place to dictate how Israel runs her affairs. There can only be peace in the region if those sides work out their differences among one another. We should respect Israel’s sovereignty and not try to dictate her policy from Washington.

“The President also defended his unconstitutional intervention in Libya, authorized not by the United States Congress but by the United Nations, and announced new plans to pressure Syria and force the leader of that country to step down.

“Our military is already dangerously extended, and this administration wants to expand our involvement. When will our bombing in Libya end? Is President Obama seriously considering military action against Syria? We are facing $2 trillion dollar deficits, and the American taxpayer cannot afford any of it.

“Our military’s purpose is to defend our country, not to police the Middle East.

“As the President prepares to send even more support to Egypt, we should be reminded that it was our foreign aid that helped Mubarak retain power to repress his people in the first place. Now we have to deal with the consequences of those decisions, yet we keep repeating the same mistakes.

“I am not the only one who can see the absurdities of our foreign policy. We give $3 billion to Israel and $12 billion to her enemies. Most Americans know that makes no sense.

“We need to come to our senses, trade with our friends in the Middle East (both Arab and Israeli), clean up our own economic mess so we set a good example, and allow them to work out their own conflicts.”

What about sending in US Troops to protect the US citizens against the Tyrannical Obama Government that is run and operated by a rogue foreign nation called Israel!  The US troops can protect the US citizens against the corrupt section of the Police and Rogue Generals with in the US Military.

@ Charles Magus,
May I suggest ,we as AMERICAN CITIZENS of this REPUBLIC, protect ourselves, AS we have inherantrights by GOD ,and the CONSTITUTION of the united states of AMERICA,UNDER GOD ,written by our FRAMERS in the 2ND AMENDMENT of the CONSTITUTION!
There are many organizations already established in our Nation that ,as citizens we have a right to group,join forces, to protect ourselves,our familys and our property! I have never given that right, freedom nor liberty away and nobody can take it away ever......! ONLY if you individually allow the CONSPRACY,CORRUPTION, and CRIMES to harm you ,will it continue!

Many thanks for your comment VIda! Always oppose tyranny in all its forms!
