Ron Paul: Why Stop Iran From Getting Nukes?

Posted: Aug 12, 2011 11:00 AM

As Guy mentioned in his post-debate analysis last night, it was disappointing to see Ron Paul completely take over the foreign policy portion of the Fox News debate. Paul made the point that we shouldn't prevent countries like Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, I beg to differ. Allowing a person like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has promised to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth, to obtain nuclear weapons is equivalent to allowing terrorists to obtain nuclear weapons while expecting them not to use them.

"Why should we write people (Iran) off?

Well Mr. Paul, this is why you can't just "write off" countries like Iran when it comes to the development of nuclear weapons.
