Watching any of the many, many, Republican debates lately has been a very scary thing to behold.
Not only has Ron Paul appeared the most sane, logical and most knowledgeable compared to the rest of the candidates. He appears to be one of the few
who we can be guaranteed as a world not to have more wars if elected.
That is if he isn’t brought into a side room on inauguration day and shown some old compromising pictures or told that certain people have “information” about him likely to hugely embarrass him. This is what I suspect has happened with many recent presidents who have all had drug, drink, womanising and gay sex scandals to hide from the public. However for some reason when I look at Ron Paul I doubt he has the same history as either the incumbent or the last drug and drink addled President.
It seems the other candidates all are just itching to please their paymasters (I wonder who they could be) and just get stuck into Iran, Russia even China.
Can you even imagine what a war with China or Russia would be like? It would be nuclear Armageddon.
And a war with Iran would be no better, possibly drawing in other countries and embedding the US in the Middle East until their empire crumbles into dust and the Chinese rise to centre stage.
The Russians are already saying that if the USA does not give them legally binding commitments about their proposed missile defense system which basically is going
to be set up in positions that are obviously circling their country, that they will have no option but to come up with defense mechanisms to target and destroy any US system that is installed.
Any logical and historically knowledgeable person would know that the Russians have every right to be suspicious of western intention having had their country invaded numerous times in the last couple of centuries from Napoleon to Hitler.
They can only see themselves being encircled again by this US proposal and any Russian would be worried. This is why they have tried so hard to come up with a joint missile defense plan instead. Something which has been rejected time and again which can only add to any Russian suspicion.
If the USA really has no desire to attack Russia then a joint plan would be advisable anyway seeing that Russian missile technology seems to be *cough* quite good – from their super sonic Sunburn anti-aircraft carrier missiles to their modern versions that are apparently able to beat any anti missile system around.
Even their half century old Soyuz rockets are now the only option available to take US astronauts into space after they ended their shuttle operation and even their 70’s designed anti-aircraft missile system the S-300 has a range far superior to that of the much more modern US Patriot system.
Whether any of this technology will be used against the USA is anyone’s guess as the Russian’s have refused to sell their most sophisticated systems to western nations preferring to sell them to China and reportedly Iran.
Therefore to hear GOP candidates sabre rattling against these countries only make those of us who have even the slightest awareness of the possible dangers very scared indeed.
I am only thankful that Sarah Palin hasn’t put her hat in the race as I can only imagine what kind of things she would have said during the GOP foreign policy debates.
The only candidate that makes any sense at all is Ron Paul.
For the media establishment to cut his air time, mask and even hide his multiple winning straw poll numbers and try to discredit him at every opportunity as a “no hoper” only does the world at large a disservice.
I only hope that if he doesn’t get the GOP candidacy he stands as an independent, on a libertarian ticket or even with his friend Dennis Kucinich as a left/right constitutionalist combo ticket.
This combination of left and right would draw the very politically divided USA together by joining both liberals and conservatives who don’t want endless war, attacks on their liberty at home, an end to the FED and restore respect for the constitution together for once. I can only dream….
