Ron Paul: Obama Is Preparing for Perpetual War

Steve Watson writes for InfoWars:

In comments before the House and during a televised interview yesterday, Congressman Ron Paul pointed out that with the decision to increase troop presence in Afghanistan and into Pakistan, president Obama is preparing to continue on the path of “perpetual war for perpetual peace”.

“I think it’s a bit misleading.” The Congressman told Fox Business, following Obama’s speech to the nation last night.

“I think Obama is actually preparing us for perpetual war. He’s been warning in that speech and elsewhere that we will be going into Pakistan. The idea that we’re going to bring our troops home eventually is just not so.” Paul added.

    So what is he supposed to do? If Obama decides to pull out of Afghanistan, he's a coward and secretly wants the islamists to win, because he's “a muslim from Kenya.” If he decides to send more troops in he's in favor of perpetual war and no better than the Bush administration.

    If he criticizes Israel, it's because he wants to see it destroyed and replaced by “Palestine,” and if he supports Israel then he's just sucking up to his wealthy Jewish contributors.

    If he can't support anything and he can't oppose anything, then
    what?

      Then he's just like every other president who ends up at a worst-of-all-worlds compromise position.

      Also, the US has been on perpetual war footing since WW2. Obama is just continuing the chain of presidents who use the US military as a diplomatic tool to advance US interests instead of an instrument of self defense.

      This is exactly why Obama hasn't been very effective at leading the “change” he promised.

      His, “why can't we all just get along” message falls flat when he will be judged based, not on results, but on the impressions his actions generate.

      To compromise means he stands for nothing, yet to choose a side means he is feeding his detractors.

      He cannot win, but must decide that “winning” is less important than doing the right thing. Unfortunately, that would guarantee a Republican victory in 2012 and the Mayan calendar will have been right all along.
