Man, it’s crap like this that makes it impossible for me to enthusiastically support Ron Paul. If his approach to foreign policy is to offer “friendship” to crazy nut jobs with nukes, then I think any chance of a presidency is doomed to failure.
I understand the point that maybe America shouldn’t be the world’s policeman, and, after all, who are we to say what defenses other sovereign nations are allowed to have? But crap on a cracker, pull your head out of your ass and realize that “friendship” with Iran isn’t going to cut it. Hasn’t Obama’s apology tour taught us anything about the futility of appeasement as a diplomacy tactic?
Can’t Paul at least say that while America would no longer be the world’s policeman under a Paul presidency, that if a rogue nation did attack us, we would crush them like a nut?
