It is Not About US Security

Ron Paul shed some light on the concept of blowback last nigh at the Republican debate last night. We are not in conflict with Iraq because of "our freedom."

The strong reaction from leading war monger Giuliani shows that the neocon-right is very afraid of such a dialog. They are afraid because if our "policies" in the mid-east are responsible for the terrorist backlash then someone might have the audacity to suggest our support for Israel is one of those policies, although Ron Paul did not say such a thing.

But it is also interesting to note that some security measures go "to far" even for Guilani. These would include policies that actually try to keep terrorists out of the United States:

He was almost certainly going to launch into the most idiotic argument in modern political debate: "If we don't fight them over there, we'll have to fight them over here."

Well, we won't have to fight them over here if we don't let them in. When he was New York City mayor, Giuliani went all the way to the Supreme Court to defend his "sanctuary" plan for illegals.. And like all the other leading GOP contenders, he supports that amnesty- that-dare-not-speak-its-name.

Paul is for closing the borders and enforcing immigration law. It's no wonder the party hacks are talking about excluding him from future debates. If he's going to keep spouting Republican ideas in a Republican primary election, that just isn't fair to candidates like Giuliani.

This immigration policy is particularly interesting in light of the most recent terrorist threat coming from illegal Albanians.

This only makes sense when you understand that protecting Israel, rather than America, is the objective.
