"As for the enemies of freedom, those who are potential adversaries, they will be reminded that peace is the highest aspiration of the American people. We will negotiate for it, sacrifice for it; we will not surrender for it, now or ever." - Reagan, January 20, 1981

"In Vietnam, we tried and failed in a just cause. No More Vietnams can mean we will not try again. It should mean we will not fail again." - from No More Vietnams by Richard Nixon

Paulers and Michael Scheuer

(Mr. Scheuer, if you read this, it's nothing personal. As I state in the post, I respect your service and appreciate your insights into the CIA's anti-terrorism operations. This is a criticism of your political opinions. No insult to you intended, sir.)

Ron Paul people are pretty much the pseudo-right bridge to the doctrinaire Communist Left - both New and Old Left - not only in their language about the "imperialism" of the American "Empire" who fight wars for Wall Street/Bankers/the Fed ect. (I once had a Pauler tell me the Fed was responsible for the Holocaust), but also in the lack of distinction in the talking points from one member to another.
But Mark Levin pointed out another of the things I have repeatedly have come across. Predictably, Ron Paul and his neo-confederates (I hope Mark doesn't mind me borrowing his description of the Pauler circus) share the exact same source

Michael Scheuer is the former head of the CIA's anti-bin Laden unit. Both his service and his insights into the CIA's anti-terrorism operations are absolutely invaluable. But his political opinions and analyses are bizarre! As Mark says, he seems to believe that Israel controls American policy in the Middle East, thus provoking terrorism against ourselves. (The Paulers' capacity to make excuses and justifications for Jihadist attacks on America as if we deserve it is in a class all it's own - excluding the left, of course - as is the resiliency of 9/11 trutherism in their little circus)

If Paulers want to keep sighting his analysis of Middle East cause and effect, then they should be made to reckon with this completely and utterly false statement from pages 24-25 of his book "Marching Toward Hell":

As the level of [Military support to Israel support grew, so too did efforst by pro-Israel Americans in both parties and large parts of academia, the media, and Hollywood - complemented by what can only be described as superbly effective covert political action by Israel's intelligence service - to entwine U.S. support for Israel ever more deeply and inextricably into U.S. domestic politics.

I want to say to Paulers - if that is your source and you actually believe our Middle East policy is directed by an Israeli conspiracy that controls our institutions, then all I can say is: I know a few good shrinks I can put you in touch with.
