Representative Ron Paul appeared on Face the Nation this Sunday, demanding that President Obama end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan immediately.
When asked “What can President Obama do to move America in the right direction?” Paul promptly replied “End the wars now. We have no clear objective in either war, it’s time to call both wars a loss and walk away- as a country we’ll save trillions of dollars and American lives.”
Paul echoed these thoughts in with his call to “End the Libyan War!“, decrying the US intervention to be unconstitutional as well as a reckless waste of resources. Paul:
Let’s be clear: this is a US act of war on Libya. This misadventure has already cost us hundreds of millions of dollars and we can be sure the final price tag will be several times higher.
As civilian victims of the US-led coalition bombing continue to add up, it is getting difficult to determine whether the problem we are creating on the ground is worse than the one we were trying to solve.
We must end our participation in any attack on Libya immediately.
It is imperative for themselves and for the world that the American public reclaim their lost power and pull back the reins on a war machine that is already running amok.
