Columnist Asks for Answers from Ron Paul Supporters

by | Nov 27, 2007 | Stress Blog | 11 comments


‘Ron Paul scares me because he is actually going to do what he says…What happens if Iraq is overtaken by extremists? What happens if the flow of oil is disrupted in Saudi Arabia? What do we do if Israel is bombed by Hamas and Hezbollah, or Iran? What if Iran, with their mind set on the destruction of Israel, gets a nuclear weapon? If any Ron Paul supporters reading this know the answers to these questions please tell me. Because, frankly, I want a non-interventionist policy, but I don’t see how it could work.’

Shall we at StressBlog give him some? I’ll do the first one:

‘What happens if Iraq is overtaken by extremists?’

This has already happened. The parties in control of Iraq are pro-Iranian, Shiite religious parties. And they are in power because of U.S. intervention. As for al Qaeda in Iraq taking over, that is about as likely as the Natural Law Party winning the U.S. Presidency in 2008.
