(ThyBlackMan.com) GOP Texas Ron Paul recently penned an opinion piece criticizing the current US position on the Syrian conflict, saying that further sanctions and involvement in the Syrian conflict will entangle the US in the year-long uprising.
“Last week the House passed yet another bill placing sanctions on Iran and Syria, bringing us closer to another war in the Middle East,” said Rep. Ron Paul. “We are told that ever harsher sanctions finally will force the targeted nations to bend to our will. Yet the ineffectiveness of previous sanctions teaches us nothing; in truth sanctions lead to war more than they prevent war.”
Rep. Ron Paul argues that involvement in the Syrian conflict will make the United States less secure, pointing out that al-Qaeda is ingratiating itself with the rebel Free Syrian Army and that aid from the United States could possibly end up in the hands of that terrorist organization.
