Former Texas congressman and libertarian icon Ron Paul appeared on his old friend Alex Jones’ radio show this week to discuss crucial geopolitical issues. The patriot leaders, usually in complete agreement, challenged each other on the issue of North Korea.
“We don’t need to be there. We’re just trying to provoke a problem, and this guy is nuts over there so why provoke them? We’re acting from a sense of insecurity,” Ron Paul said about Trump’s foreign policy.
Paul believes that North Korea poses no threat, and that the dictatorship should be left to its own devices with China and South Korea picking up most of the slack regarding diplomacy. Jones believes that Kim Jong-un poses a serious national security risk to the United States.
“[Kim Jong-un] is goofy,” Paul said. “But I’ll tell you what: He does know what he’s doing because he has to threaten because… he believes that if he gives up and capitulates and does exactly what we tell him to do that what will happen like what happened to Saddam Hussein.”
“This guy who runs North Korea is not going to invade the United States. He’s not going to launch a missile. Just remember the whole thing dealing with Iraq about all the great danger, and the propagandists – the deep state, the media – convinced the American people that Saddam Hussein was a danger. They’re doing the same thing now with North Korea,” Paul said.
Now that the stage has been set, Paul believes that someone in the CIA or another deep state apparatus of the military-industrial complex will likely promulgate an attack that will be used as the pretext for another long, expensive, bloody war.
“Somebody’s going to use a false flag and somebody’s gonna to shoot down the airplane just so this war gets started,” Paul said, warning of possible dire consequences for Trump’s continued saber-rattling in the region.
Paul believes that Americans should keep their bearings in the midst of the war frenzy, and always remember the importance of Constitutional fidelity. Paul was able to deliver that message to millions of people on Alex Jones’ radio show on Tuesday.
