I was born in Iran, grew up in Germany, and now I am a U.S. citizen. As a man who likes all the countries above I have to say the U.S. policies is really flawed. U.S. helped India to enrich and India is a much much more instable country. And Ron Paul is right. I mean I don't care if you are republican racists, or democrat weed-lover...what he says is just common sense. When people are pushed from outside they get closer. Now when U.S. is pushing Iranians with all this sanction crap the Radicals in Iran will say: YOu need us in power because otherwise U.S. will ruin your country. This way the U.S. is crushing the efforts of the young people in Iran to get rid of the mullas.

I am speechless at what Obama is doing. He said he wanted to talk to Iranian. He talked about mutual respect.

Iranians had nothing to do with 9-11. Those were Saudis that are still best buddies with the bushes and U.S. and innocent Iranians need to suffer for what??

If you want an enemy you will get an enemy, and what the U.S> right now doesn't need is another enemy.

Chinese and Russians and Europeans are pulling away from us and their people are enjoying their lives while we as U.S> citizens are suffering...all for what??
Iranian population want closer relation to Americans but we keep pushing them away by talking crap.

Pakistan, a more radical country has nuclear weapons. Iran can only make middle east and the world more stable.

Like I said....i really really don't get what is gonna come out of this. I can't believe millions and millions of people have only 1 representative in Congress...and that man is Ron Paul.

I bet if he was the President we would prosper as a country again. He also wants to get rid of the Fed and bring back gold standard which is really good. Without gold standard our government prints and spends money like milli vanilli!!!

Get rid of this micky mouse government already. Listen to this man!!!

I agree wholeheartedly with Paul on Iran.  Our policies have been completely nonsensical in the Middle East and are guided by (supposed) Israeli interests* and not American interests.


* It's probably worth noting that they aren't really in Israeli interests either.  It's just that they have a militaristic political wing that's even nuttier than ours.

Be careful what you wish for. It is the neo-cons that voters tossed out in 2006 and 2008 who are pushing for sanctions against Iran. NOT the current mickey mouse Gov't.

I am not in the middle east, but I tend to believe that most Iranians would rather raise their familys and living standards than destroy America.

From CNN;

Of the six invited panelists at this hearing, three -- Patrick Clawson of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, Orde Kittrie of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and Michael Rubin of the American Enterprise Institute -- maintained that the United States should impose more severe economic sanctions on Iran...

...The spirit of the meeting could not have been lost on any of the participants when Rep. Christopher H. Smith, R-New Jersey, invoked the example of Nazi Germany in criticizing Iran's use of technology to block human rights, thus advocating new and harsher sanctions, or when he added that if sanctions did not work, Iranians "need to know what's coming next."

As to what exactly was to come next, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-California, told the panel, "we can do more than just sanctions," meaning advocating covert support for Iranian opposition forces "so that they will have the material well-being ... to take on that government themselves."

From there, Rep. John Boozman, R-Arkansas, proceeded to argue that he would support Israeli bombing of Iran. Kittrie proposed that in that event, it would be better for the United States to carry out any military action because "we have the right capacity," although he described that as not a "good option."

The stupid thing about it is that the US government put the current Iranian government in power in the first place.

The Iranian govt is like a man holding his own baby backed in the corner with a handgun surrounded by a swat team. There is no way he's giving up that baby.

I won't lie I dislike Obama, but I will admit that during the election the thoughts of McCain ending up in a war with Iran were on my mind.

Its amazing the viral grass roots campaign that RP has, but more amazing that nobody else in Congress sees his way. 300M US citizens and this is the only guy we can elect who would actually rather give power back to the people than consolidate it in the government?

What US government? It is the Council of Foreign Relations set up by Rockefeller run government. With a Rothschild set up Fed aka IMF money man. As Rothschild stated I care not what the laws are. The one who holds and runs the money is the one who runs and controls the country.
