Obama’s new wars in Iraq and Syria are totally immoral as well as illegal under US and international law, RPI Chairman Ron Paul told RT’s Abby Martin in September. The idea that US force will solve the problem is also mistaken, he said. “US action will increase the violence,” rather than reduce it, he added.
In a lengthy interview, broadcast on RT’s popular “Breaking the Set” program, Dr. Paul wonders why the countries in the region, feeling the pressure from ISIS, do not get together to solve the problem.
Said Dr. Paul about US involvement in the fight:
Why should someone 6,000 miles away, that has been stirring this pot for so long, be the group that is going to bring everyone together and organize the fight?
The fearmongers who have terrified many Americans into supporting another war in the Middle East are “not concerned with the defense of America,” said Ron Paul. But the weapons manufacturers are making out very well, with the US bombing its own weapons that have fallen into the hands of ISIS. – Daniel McAdams
