Ron Paul on Iraq: US making the same mistakes

On the 15th anniversary of the Iraq War, Americans are more skeptical of the US government, and no one has been held accountable for invading based on false intelligence. Former Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) joins RT America’s Ed Schultz to discuss what has changed since the start of the war.

Who is the main person that cause this & why?

Lawrence Fortune

The reckless entrance to war will stop, and congress will again be the one in charge of declaration of wars only after a few american cities become like Aleppo. When US feels the horrors and tastes the anguish they deliver upon other states.

Trumpstein Oy Vey

U.s and its allies have been behaving with impuny , attacking and destroying country's and not being held accountable , organisations suppose to curtail this arrogant rite to launch military aggression , against any country that has extremist Jihadists , is a farce , there is no justice from any U .N. body ! They have been corrupted and coerced into doing ,THE warhawks bidding , at the expense of regional stability and lots of noncombatants, civilian lives ! This was their intention ! LIBYA and Yemen case in point ,

Pedro Silveira Ramos

We start hating America, Israel and Saudis the base of war crimes all over the World . Pure terrorists !!!


Congress turned power over to the president to beat the legal system.
When the president decides war, no one in congress will be held accoubtable.
The president will never be persecuted nor his staff!
Military personnel will Never be tried, much less serve time outside U.S. territories!
In short, no One will ever face prosecution!
Add patriot act niw freedom act… even U.S. citizens are targets today…

Trump must be impeached from office before he can make an even bigger mistake with Iran.


Showing that even a crackpot closet fascist can get something right.

Ron Paul for president 2020. NO one else is qualified. Dr. paul will make peace, stop the wars, dismantle the military industrial complex, and audit the FED..
WTF is wrong with people… You let the MSM convince you that he is a racist… I am ashamed of the stupidity of the American people.

The people who expose the crimes are put in jail and the criminals who commit crimes are in charge of the US affairs and that is exactly happning in afghanistan.
The most wanted criminal man in afghanistan like warlords are the vice president and executive power and those who object the power of these criminal warlords are put in jail or Guantanamo.
He is absolutly right that DC is ruled by the warmongers as afghanistan by warlords.

Hildebrandt Zhor

They're not mistakes. Everything went exactly as planned. The murderers got rich, and now they want more. The US is the Great Satan. That's all there is to it. The US murders millions for trillions. It's free market capitalism at the highest level.

Damien King

its not just about waking up i bet more and more ppl being effected with whats around them, the sanctions, rediculous laws and inflations plus whats rite and wrong is upside down plus whats with freedom of speech ect. to be human or not to be human

James Richardson

The system is completely broken. All these bought and paid for criminals in government are never prosecuted. They sure put Martha Stewart in jail for nothing compared to what our corrupt elected officials are doing.

Some peace we are not seeing yet with the draining of the swamp


Mr Paul doesn't understand that this has nothing to do with what the "founding fathers" intended. These are not 'mistakes', these are deliberate actions in the interest of the military industrial security complex. Mr. Paul, good intentioned he is, and he can talk about this until his face turns blue, no change will occur in foreign policy. It's the game of the big boys and the public is watching with awe when the fancy air force jets drop bombs on civilians in most cases. They probably don't see the destroyed cities and countries, millions of refugees fleeing from their destroyed… Read more »

America has no intelligence. It's internal agencies do nothing but attack it's citizens. The stink goes back to Kennedy's death. Bush took out the twinn towers and intelligence agencies were every attack to happen in America. False flags all of them

Analogous to Tower 7 : Ameaning

If a person rapes more than one person, we don't refer to them as making mistakes, we call them a serial rapist (or POTUS). America[n Society] is not making [the same] mistakes, it's defining OUR [true] character as a serial criminal [society]. If the world doesn't destroy US, we will destroy them [all]; be it maliciously or inadvertently (tricked).

If Ron Paul Ruled The World…
