US used chemical attack as excuse to strike Syria: Ron Paul

Quote:
Former US Congressman Ron Paul says there is no proof that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had a role in last week’s suspected chemical weapons attack in his country, saying that Washington worked hard to find an excuse for launching a military attack in the Arab country....

“I don't think the evidence is there, at least it hasn’t been presented, and they need a so-called excuse, they worked real hard, our government and their coalition”....

“If any of this was true, I don’t know why they couldn’t wait and take a look at it,” Paul said. “In 2013, there were similar stories that didn’t go anywhere.”

He was referring to a chemical attack in Ghouta agricultural belt around the capital Damascus on August 21, 2013.

“From my point of view, there was no need to rush. There was no threat to national security."....

“The peace talks have ended now. They’re terrified that peace was going to break out! al-Qaeda was on the run, peace talks were happening, and all of a sudden, they had to change, and this changes things dramatically! I don’t expect peace talks anytime soon or in the distant future.”....

Paul also spoke about US interference in the world issues, saying: “I don’t believe that our people or the American government should be the policemen of the world.”

In early 2003, the US, backed by the United Kingdom invaded Iraq under the pretext that the regime of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction (WMD)....

The invasion, lasted for eight years, plunged Iraq into chaos, resulting in years of deadly violence and the rise of terrorist groups like al-Qaeda, which was a precursor of Daesh.

Ron Paul is a REAL American --- the kind that existed before World War II turned the US into a totalitarian fascist state.
