Look back -- our senator seat segment and congressman Ron Paul now turning to foreign policy Charles start with you.
You said -- be natural for around to a acquiring nuclear weapons.
And -- will be of no concern -- United States well what if Iran then proceeded to use that weapon.
To annihilate Israel and kill six million Jews would that be of concern.
It's it I think you missed stated my position it is a big concern I don't like nuclear wherever none the -- the better.
I have said that right now we don't have concrete evidence that by -- CIA or the United Nations that -- you know on the verge of it.
And I don't think that we have enough reason to go to war against Iran.
I went I was in the military in the sixties and -- Soviets had 3040000.
Of these so I know a little bit about.
You know you can confronting an -- But it.
Israel you know has a few of those weapons themselves like about 300.
I think Israel sacraments is way too much sovereignty to -- say you have to ask us to.
To deal with their borders and what they can do both defending their borders are dealing with their friends.
It right now is rose more vulnerable than ever because of the breakdown of all our puppets over there.
Apple on Monday and -- the every Indians.
They're -- to attack somebody with a weapon they don't have -- then I mean capable of producing enough gasoline for themselves to keep sanctions on.
Now Mike -- put sanctions on we took sync is off the Soviets and they murdered hundreds of millions of people the announcement that -- -- -- the same way we we we we did we dealt with.
The Chinese are pretty vicious.
So far -- the Iranians have not invaded any other countries and I know there.
I know there for contempt for call but they haven't invaded their neighbors and they haven't been threatening to invade us in the debate you said why wouldn't have been natural for the Ryans who want to weapon.
They'd be given more respect why should we write these people off we should stay out of their internal business so.
Essentially you're okay.
With Iran getting nicely but I can't because I can't I don't think it's our businesses -- the site but a good example of this is Libya.
I you know -- is sort of are frowned and then they became our enemy and then we re forgave about the killer a block of B and then we -- and said would you give up your weapons.
And He gave up his weapons then He got clobbered.
Federal -- with native title with us so it's a good lesson hang on your nuclear weapons maybe they'll respect it.
It was -- -- situation congressman -- you would deploy US troops abroad.
If our national security with Stratton and what if Iran has a nuclear weapon and that's potentially threatening us did we attack Russian or German.
They have a lot of nuclear weapons that we didn't attack them that we that was -- it.
Thousand times -- dangerous and talks with Iran would be your policy we have lots of sanctions on Russia and China than ever we eventually gave up and Reagan Reagan talked and we talked to them was.
-- -- and we talked that we took off the sanctions we traded with cheese and Matthews China news.
I I think I think it's I think it's.
I think -- -- the policy is wrong does more harm to us I think it makes Israel much less safe.
We have undermined it just look.
Turkey is not exactly their best friend now.
-- Egypt now.
-- They're they're they're going to radical Islam now Tunisia is going to be Islamic and as well so they're less friendly with Israel now so I think this is.
All gonna back besides Bristol broke what we're not gonna be able to -- team's yes forever.
And then that's why He I think we should have a different foreign policy and and trim at least equal to the way we -- treated.
Those horrible Chinese.
It would have been -- -- can see why would you I was at high school when we went to war against -- Korea.
It here we are all these years later I liked it much better -- Nixon went.
And and open up the doors which I don't know war you wanna lift sanctions.
It's not war well it is a war the first thing you do when you go to war you put you output boycotts army blockade -- country it is in many ways an act of war -- After the killing of Osama laden you said of the raid.
There could have been a better way for them to do this would president Paul have authorize that raid in the Pakistan.
No I do I since I suggested the better way I would go back did not authorize that Osama bin Laden would be alive today -- had been.
No no let me answer I said there was a better way in a better way it was when I originally say add -- after nine elevenths I voted for the authority voted for the fans.
Go away after a couple hundred of our special forces had him trapped.
And walked away at Tora Bora can -- it is that you happen I'm talking about -- and all I'm saying he's bad guy we should have done in a bit better way it was doing it.
Teen years ago instead of going EM in wasting all these American lives it would not.
Because that didn't happen -- in -- eleven you would not have authorize that raid in the Pakistan well I think since -- KSM was delivered to his.
Pakistan needs that we should at least talk to him pure.
I mean what it's a terrible about that why that is independently they -- -- look at.
You know in the there's always -- is this was.
A risky way because now we're lobbing missiles over there are journalists or bombing the same times were given money to the government there's a civil war going on and we've.
Created this because we supported government is very unpopular US was -- it now we have.
Karzai saying you know what.
When -- the war breaks out we're supporting Pakistan against the started interrupt you we have -- heartbreak to hit we have much more to talk about we'll continue this discussion one has a great question Special Report on line continues right after this.
