A few weeks ago, Ron Paul was interviewed about Syria by Neil Cavuto. During the discussion, Ron asked a very important question:
"Why are we on the side of Al Qaeda right now?"This, for sure, has many Americans (at least those who are paying attention) asking the same thing. How can the U.S. be both fighting Al Qaeda, and at the same time aiding them to overthrow Assad in Syria?
Well, this isn't the first time that Ron Paul has posed this type of question.
Let's rewind back to 1983, when the bogeyman was The Soviet Union.
Here's Ron Paul speaking on the House floor, asking an almost identical question:
“Why are we engaged in military action against the Communists in which American lives are being lost when we cannot take the simple action of cutting off the flow of money to the Communists? For decades we have pursued this immoral course of action, asking American men to die fighting an enemy the American government has financed.”
