Ron Paul: Santions Gives (Iran) Motivation to Want a Nuclear Weapon
Ron Paul has just given CNN a dose of uncomfortable truth, responding to whether Obama is doing enough to stop Iran's nuclear development: 'I think he gets too much involved. I think sanctions gives the motivation for them to want a nuclear weapon. We have 45 bases around them, we can demolish them within hours. And the worst thing the sanctions do, and Republicans and Democrats both support it and the other GOP candidates want war even more, the whole thing is there is a lot of dissension in Iran and we should encourage it by not interfering, once we get involve and threaten to bomb them, it becomes nationalistic - everyone joins the Ayataollah and Ahmedinejad. So there is a blowback - unusual circumstances and unintended consequences.'
Much to the chagrin of CNN, Ron Paul blasts another one out of the park, particularly in light of today's news that North Korea has tested the topic of discussion for Iran.
