Ron Paul: Neocon Krauthammer Wrong on Russia/China Trade Deal

On the Ron Paul Channel, Dr. Paul reviews a recent article by neoconservative writer Charles Krauthammer, in which Krauthammer expresses his great fear that US “influence” is on the decline after a $400 billion trade deal between Russia and China was signed last month.

“It’s almost as if he is terrified that peace may be breaking out,” said Dr. Paul.

The neocons believe that the US bullying the rest of the world is very good, said Dr. Paul, because we have to spread American exceptionalism around the world. We don’t want to look like we are a weak nation.

But that approach to the world is not strength, Paul says. It is actually a sign of insecurity and inferiority that the US government feels compelled to either buy its friends or bomb those who refuse the US bribes.

The neocon mindset is incapable of considering that security, peace, and prosperity do not depend solely on foreign submission to US bombs or bribes.

Dr. Paul zeroes in on what is really bugging Krauthammer about the Russia/China deal: his fear that the US military budget will not continue to rise at the neocon-preferred level.

Paul catches Krauthammer in a lie, as the neoconservative warns that US military spending will be cut “down to the pre-Pearl Harbor level.”

Not true, Paul points out: Krauthammer’s deception is in claiming that a reduction in the rate of increase is equal to a decrease. It is quite a simple lie to catch, but the neocons nevertheless continue repeating it to a slavish and uninquisitive media.

    Strange, isn’t it, how a Dem potus is following the same neo-con playbook as a GOP potus? As I’ve said before (but I’ll say again), Cheney is still running things from “Site R”.

    People forget Cheney was a right hand man of Nixon’s. Cheney should’ve been in jail in the 70s.

    Has Ron Paul ever said anything stupid? The guy’s like a fucking rock. Never changes or waffles.

    My student’s were amazed @ how he’s saying the same damn things he said in the 70s.

    When assholes start babbling on about Obomber vs. Bush, I just say, “I didn’t vote for either idiot. I voted for Ron Paul.”
