Yes, but Ron Paul used it as political cover for his isolationist views. I support the idea that we should be very selective in the wars that we fight, and that Congress should first declare war before we commit troops, with rare exceptions, but we do need a military presence worldwide to protect our business interests abroad, and to protect our citizens who travel to foreign lands. And, our leaders had better understand that ISLAM and ALL Muslims are enemies of this country. Muslims presented our first 4 Presidents with our first national crisis. Muslim pirates attacked our unarmed merchant ships, enslaved, ransomed or killed the crew. Islam is an international Mafia type crime syndicate with a religious front. We must never forget that!
