inkling_revival - what's wrong with staying out of the affairs of the middle east? What have we gained from being there? Remember September 11th, 2001's terrorist attack happened, in spite of our entanglements - Dr. Paul believes because of them - starting in the 50's. The CIA was worried about "blowback" - Dr. Paul didn't invent the term, just brought it more into the light. you disagree with this?
