Ron Paul – We brought it on ourselves?

Rep. Ron Paul’s suggestion that the U.S. bombing of Iraq had contributed to the terrorist attacks of 2001 was met with scorn from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani who said, “I don’t think I’ve ever heard that before, and I have heard some pretty absurd explanations.”

“They attack us because we’re over there,” Ron Paul continued after the challenge.

As one of the many humorists at Little Green Footballs once commented: “Those who do not learn their history are destined to annoy the hell out of the rest of us.” Ron Paul, please do a little research on the Barbary Pirates in the early days of our fledgling country. At one point in time nearly 20% of our Federal Budget was devoted to paying Muslim leaders to prevent attacks and hostage taking of our merchant ships.

From Wiki:

In 1786, Thomas Jefferson, then the ambassador to France, and John Adams, then the ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the ambassador to Britain from Tripoli. The Americans asked Adja why his government was hostile to American ships, even though there had been no provocation. The ambassador’s response was reported to the Continental Congress:

That it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman [Muslim] who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.

    “Deal with it?”
    A. By putting my head in the sand?
    B. Denying reality?
    C. Pretending?
    D. All of the above?
    You’re polishing the brass on Paul’s Titanic – it’s
    all going down.

    Someone is wearing a tinfoil hat, and it isn’t Ron Paul. That’s all I’m sayin’.

    Yea I’m not sure why the truthers like Paul. Maybe it’s because his foreign policy views are the opposite of Bush’s.
