The War That Never Ends.

“Even if it were desirable, America is not strong enough to police the world by military force. If that attempt is made, the blessings of liberty will be replaced by coercion and tyranny at home. Our Christian ideals cannot be exported to other lands by dollars and guns. Persuasion and example are the methods taught […]

Ron Paul: “What Have We Ever Accomplished In Iraq?”

Written by Ron Paul, as posted at the Ron Paul Institute: We have been at war with Iraq for 24 years, starting with Operations Desert Shield and Storm in 1990. Shortly after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait that year, the propaganda machine began agitating for a US attack on Iraq. We all remember the appearance before […]

Tales from the Neoconservative Crypt: Lying to Themselves.

I recently posted an article on what I call out as the schizophrenia that lives in the mainstream conservative movement: the plea for a small government domestically, but thumping for a huge and monstrous government internationally. My case in point was the Iraq War, which is still widely beloved and vigorously defended by Bushian Neoconservatives […]

Meanwhile, In Libya…

While the world remains focused on the Ukrainian Crisis, Libya continues to toil in a never-ending cycle of violence and mass civil disturbance. Since the collapse of Muammar Gaddafi’s dictatorship nearly three years ago, Libya has seen a string of cobbled-together coalition governments come and go amidst constant barrages of violence in the streets.

“Unidentified” gunmen have surrounded a Ukrainian military base on the Crimean peninsula, preventing any Ukrainian troops from coming or going. The unidentified gunmen are most certainly Russian troops, or at least pro-Russian Ukrainians armed by the Russian military. The situation is unbelievably tense. A single burst of gunfire could lead to Ukraine’s first full-scale war […]

South Sudan, long known as a regional hotbed of violence and terror, has recently exploded into even more furor than usual.

Ron Paul on Iraq: “What a Disaster”.

The Good Dr. Paul dishes on the current state of Iraq and what the 2003 invasion and ouster of Saddam Hussein has really done to Iraq, the entire Middle-East, and ourselves. October was Iraq’s deadliest month since April, 2008. In those five and a half years, not only has there been no improvement in Iraq’s […]

Staying Out of War: Gallup Poll Reflects Increasing Support.

Yesterday, I wrote an article extolling my approval of American’s increasing support for federal legalization of marijuana. This reflects attitudes turning more towards liberty and a displeasure with the State. Hot on the heels of yesterday’s poll comes another promising poll which reflects an interesting trend: When asked if the USA should mind it’s own […]

Iran and America: Cautious Optimism?

Former Congressman and longtime libertarian advocate Ron Paul sees reason to be cautiously optimistic about the future of relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran. I agree with him. A few weeks ago, President Obama spoke to his political counterpart in Iran for a 15 minute phone call. This is the first time this has […]

Ron Paul: US Government “Clearly At War” In Yemen.

Ron Paul, longtime libertarian advocate and defacto figurehead of the modern Liberty movement, accused the US Government of waging a secret war in the Arabian desert nation of Yemen. Yemen, which lies south of Saudi Arabia and directly on the coast, has long been a hotbed of militant activity, with frequent reports of suspected US […]
