On the GOP race (and Ron Paul's ignorance of Canada)

As I was offering my thoughts on the state of the GOP race right now (here), I discovered that Dr. Ron Paul blithely assumes terrorists don't target Canada.

Take a look at what I mean (and how to contact Dr. Paul's campaign to set him straight) here.

I told you that this guy with a wide ranging support from KKK, Nazis, Jihadists and mullahs, is a clueless junior congressman with no knowledge or experience in history and foreign policy matters. Hopefully, he'll fade away as race gets more serious and silly jokes like Paul can be ignored for good.

winston, is Paul's ignorance of foreign policy matters sorta like Huckabee having no idea what the National Intelligence Estimate is and what it says about Iran's nuclear program, then comparing that lack of knowledge to ignoring news about Britney Spears?

Both are clueless but Ron Paul is a crazy element that must be exposed for what he stands for and what he really is.

Canada has not been attacked by Islamic terrorists.

Paul was right about Iran, which distinguished himself from every other socialist Republican, regarding the latest information about their nuclear plan. And before you think he is complimentary towards Ahmedinijad, he has called him a nut, but also that American policy is legitimizing that idiot.

McCain disputes blowback then tries to blame US policy for WWII? You can't have it both ways.

The ignorance regarding foreign policy is by the fools who supported the Mujahadeen against the Soviets, which eventually contributed to 9/11 and who supported the Shah which contributed to radical Islam in Iran. Mushareef anyone? Paul shows the wisdom lacking by his critics.

As far as the smear saying he is supported by the KKK, they must really support his suggestion of Walter Williams as a veep candidate.

Crazy foreign policy would be McCain's suggestions of defending radical Islamic terrorists in Chechnya.

The mistake in Iran was in not supporting the Shah more strongly. Have you forgotten about the jihadists who took over and are still controlling Iran? The Shah was never as bad as it's been since his overthrow.

Canada has not been attacked????

How quickly we forget about the arrest of the Toronto 17 !!!

Just because they were arrested BEFORE they could pull off their terrorist actions does NOT mean we are immune from Islamofascist bombings!

They intended to behead our Prime Minister!!
