Challenge to Ron Paul: Support the Serbs Again and Renounce Radical Islam

This comment by CzechRebel deserves to stand on its own:

I can remember Ron Paul’s stance against the Kosovo War very well. He seemed like the only voice of reason in the Congress at the time. However, do we see Ron Paul reaching out to the Serbian community today? During the debates or media interviews, does he ever bring up the fact that we were on the wrong side of the Kosovo War?

Perhaps future historians will look back at the United States and wonder what happened to a group of peoples, united under one government, who were the first to put a man on the moon, and wonder: How did such a great empire fall?

Perhaps some future historian will look back at the spring of 1999 and declare it to be the time when America lost its soul. Yes, lost its soul so much so, that even the one voice of reason during the Kosovo War refused some thirteen years later to acknowledge that it was not that the war was so wrong, but that we had actually fought on the wrong side.

Challenge to Ron Paul: Support the Serbs again and renounce radical Islam.

That is the whole point: we fought on the wrong side in the Balkans. Until we acknowledge the situation and make our best effort to undo the damage we did, the US and Europe will continue to suffer “blowback” from this tragic political and moral error.

We on 1389 Blog staunchly support both the Serbian people and Israel. Ron Paul and his supporters, in true doctrinaire fashion, blame our current global predicament not on our worldwide appeasement of our Muslim enemies, but on our alliance with Israel and on the supposed manipulation of the “Jewish lobby” in the US. They insist that all we have to do is to throw Israel and the Jews under the bus, and the rest of the world will leave us in peace.

While we ourselves are not Randians (indeed, blog admins 1389 and CzechRebel are both Orthodox Christians), we find it ironic that Ron Paul named his son Rand after Ayn Rand.

Ayn Rand on libertarianism and Israel:

Ayn Rand, who unintentionally provided the impetus for the movement, disdained libertarians, calling them “right-wing hippies.’ She was unequivocal in her support for Israel, which she explained this way in a 1974 appearance: “When you have civilized men fighting savages, you support the civilized men, no matter who they are.”

We do agree with Ron Paul on one issue: the Senate must explicitly declare war before the US engages in military action. Nothing justifies our current “War Powers Act”; nothing in the US Constitution empowers the Senate to delegate its authority to declare war. Even when Congress is not in session, present-day communications and transportation are so rapid that it would take little time to gather a quorum in the Senate to declare war, even in an emergency situation.

It is not the job of the President or of the State Department to decide when we go to war. It is the duty of the Senate to meet and declare war, without waiting for the President, whenever a foreign enemy declares war on us (via a fatwa or other proclamation) or perpetrates an act of war on us. Then it becomes the President’s duty, as Commander in Chief, to wage war in accordance with the Senate’s declaration. Ever since the Iranian hostage crisis, our Senate has allowed foreign Muslim enemies to walk all over us. That is a disgraceful abdication of responsibility.

Has US ever been on the right side ??

@philipzhao,

Not since the end of the Vietnam War. (Arguably, we should have stayed out of Vietnam, and instead defended Czechoslovakia against the Soviet Union. But at least the US was not fighting on the side of the communists in Vietnam.)

The Korean War was justified, but we did not fight it as a total war as we should have done. The result has been roughly six decades (and counting) of enslavement for North Korea.

WWII was justified.

@1389

There was no “right” side in the Vietnam War. Even a cursory look at the history of Vietnam shows one thing: the locals are always ready to fight to expel foreigners. It is a 2,000+ year tradition. In recent history, the same people fought to expel the Japanese (during WW II), then the French (a colonial power trying to hold on to their colony), then the Americans (we call it the “Vietnam War”; they call it the “American War”) and then surprise! The Chinese sent troops to Vietnam. Well, the Communists had won, right? Wrong! The same Vietnamese anti-foreigner movement drove the Chinese troops out in record time

I have spoken to several people who have visited Vietnam recently and what they report back to me sure doesn’t sound like “Communism.”

The moral to the story is simple: Don’t fight a war in Vietnam unless:

1. Helping then drive out foreigners matches your objectives;
2. You are ready to do a complete genocide and wipe the Vietnamese people off the face of the Earth; or
3. You want to lose a foreign war. (It might take a century, but if history is any guide, you will lose, someday!)

So glad I just stumbled on this site through a comment on baddog. I have been keeping some tabs on Serbia since Clinton’s dastardly bombing of Yuogoslavia. It makes me cry to see such a black mark in American’s support of Kosovo and to see our citizens believe the MSM propaganda from the Islamic community of the Sebians.

We did forget:

On the subject of Ron Paul, I have so much info on him and his Nazi connections and the groups that he associates with. He has on many past ocassions called Israel and America “occupiers”. He would reduce America to some third world country of anarchy if he was elected president.

NATO bombed the wrong side in Former Yugoslavia. Their only fault was that they did not want to surender to the New World Order.
