RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul, over at the Ron Paul Channel, reports this week in a 14 minutes video the story behind the conflict in Ukraine. Paul also criticizes biases in how mainstream television programs cover the conflict, saying “they're part of the banking system, they're part of the military-industrial complex, they're part of an educational system that endorses perpetual intervention overseas.” The full video is viewable without the subscription usually required for Ron Paul Channel videos.
In the video, Paul notes the hypocrisy of the United States government condemning Russia for violating Ukraine sovereignty while the United States has been invading countries, taking sides in revolutionary conflicts including in Ukraine, and interfering in elections around the world. Paul notes that, while many people around the world recognize this hypocrisy, “the propaganda here, in order to get the American people satisfied, is to say ‘they are the bad guys and we are the angels’”
“The neocons will go nuts” to impose sanctions in response to recent developments in Ukraine, says Paul, despite following such a course being “exactly opposite” of what the US should do.
Paul concludes, “the closest thing we can come to having a morally correct position is minding our own business and getting out of situations like this.”
