Ron Paul: ‘Why Does US Care’ About Crimea?


ron-paulThe United States should not be so concerned with Crimea’s decision to secede from Ukraine, Ron Paul writes in a commentary for USA Today.

“Why does the U.S. care which flag will be hoisted on a small piece of land thousands of miles away?” writes for the former congressman from Texas.

Paul has been all over the news regarding the Ukraine crisis, and his message has remained the same: stop blaming Russia.

“This whole thing that Putin is the big cause of the trouble is pretty good evidence that the Europeans as well as the American government have contrived to have the overthrow of a government that most people say had been elected,” Paul said on theĀ Fox Business Channel last week.

  1. I don’t know, but even his son is said the sanctions against Russia aren’t harsh enough…

    I think his son is trying to shift more towards the mainstream, but his father might ruin it for him.

  2. As usual and in a very scary way, Mr. Paul can conjecture that there is a possible future without American distinctions in any condition of human arrangement since it is “far from home”. The true vision of human trust is not a blameworthy experiment of lost sincerity against the norm of human anticipation of honor’s event. The voice of the civil libertarian has no conditional hope for better pride in human activity. Reality has shown that when limits of conclusion are issued for blackened reality, there is always a very true and negative consequence. There are clear issue with the rule of law in the region of the Crimea and Ukraine and this annexation under forced direction is terror’s way of breaking the flag pole to elicit a narrowed response of human worth and value in an era of lost conjecture. Really, we should indeed pray and make considerable diplomatic means possible for what is not a very desirable common outcome for the people of Ukraine and the rule of Law in the Russian Federation and Crimea. It will not be good for democracy anywhere to assume that liability for lessened futures can be danced upon by the military might and forceful authority of a larger state over a smaller state. Mr. Paul is a criminal who hates that there is a favorable American Approach to Nation Disposition and he clearly has not learned any lessons from the Criminal events of the past. If you like Mr. Paul, you are not an obvious disaster, but your mind is clearly not on Atonement and Higher Learning.

  3. Why should the world have cared about Czechoslovakia in 1938? Who cared if Germany owned it? Ron Paul is right, it didn’t matter.

    He who does not learn the lessons of history is condemned to repeat them.

  4. For the same reasons the US cared when Iraq invaded Kuwait. The area is fully of Natural gas which is pumped via pipes in the Ukraine feeding a significant area of the EU

    The more control Russia has over the gas fields the more they get to dictate the price…
