Ron Paul on the “Total Failure” of US Intervention in Iraq

by | Jan 16, 2014

Speaking with Charles Goyette during their weekly podcast conversation on Friday, RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul details the “total failure” of the United States government’s decades-long intervention in Iraq.

Paul also addresses the George W. Bush Administration’s machinations to use the September 11, 2001 attacks as a “Pearl Harbor event” to justify the second invasion of Iraq, as well as the beating of “drums of war” in Congress to approve that 2003 invasion.

Listen to the conversation here.

With Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham blaming current problems in Iraq on the withdrawal of the US military, might a re-escalation of US intervention in Iraq be around the corner? While some people think a third invasion of Iraq would be the charm, Paul’s comments suggest re-escalation would expand the failure.
