Ron Paul: We Killed a Million Iraqis and that Pleased Bin Laden, Who Will Eventually Bankrupt this County

From: Raw Story

Paul noted that George Bush ran in 2000 on a pledge to end Bill Clinton’s nation-building, but then he “joined the idea that the American taxpayers — you — have an obligation to take care of everybody and police the world.”

“This is literally what bankrupts the country,” Paul complained. “It costs us a trillion dollars a year to take care of our foreign policy, and that cannot last.”

“The person most pleased with our foreign policy is Osama bin Laden,” Paul went on. “He said, ‘I’m going to get you to come over here and we’ll fight you on our sand, and we will do what we did to the Soviets.’ … He said he will do the same thing, he will eventually bankrupt this country.”

“So yeah,” Paul acknowledged. “We want to get rid of a bad guy in Iraq — we did. But … another one million Iraqis got killed. Believe me, they weren’t all terrorists. … But nevertheless, it pleased Osama bin Laden.”
