We all remember 2007, when the heroic Ron Paul stood in front of the nation at a Republican Presidential Debate, and explained the concept known as "blowback". It was so out of the ordinary for someone to actually speak the truth to the American people, that Rudy Giuliani's emotions took over.
Giuliani made the great mistake of confronting Ron Paul on the idea that maybe foreigners don't like having their lands occupied by the U.S. and use violence as a method to kick them out.
Giuliani played dumb. He'd never heard of such unpatriotic thinking, and actually asked Ron Paul to apologize!!
You can reminisce for 3min below:
Those who favor an active role by America in the world – hawks who have spent their lives rightly resisting the “America Come Home” siren call – need to be wise in their counsel. Because if the next military engagement isn’t well thought out, well executed, and doesn’t lead to a relatively swift and decent outcome, the blowback could be intense.
