Ron Paul: What US does now in Middle East will increase violence

On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin speaks with former Congressman and three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul, discussing his views on the ramifications of expanding the war against ISIS into Syria, how US foreign policy has exacerbated the growth of Islamic extremism, the hypocritical partnership with Saudi Arabia, and the marginalization of alternative views outside of the two party system.

Glen Beck and OReilly are warmongering LIARS !  Paul is a truther… Israel doesn't have any strings on him…Ron didn't have a part of the 911 attack … he's not a liar or murderer,  he's honest.

Ron Paul for President!

I've always supported and agreed with Ron Paul. This is one of the only things I've ever disagreed with concerning Paul. These people need to be brought down and now. They have no peaceful thoughts at all and all they want is for the US people to die. Doesn't this mean anything? They are growing. Look at the woman who got her head cut off at work the other day. This guys was preaching Islam. Also, and many may disagree but the US is behind this war, they need the war for the Global Government they were shooting for. Just don't give… Read more »

People on the capitol hills are not all liars or fools. Ron Paul is proof. Too bad he left there. Now there are only liars and fools there.

Rand Paul thinks he can play the game of selling out to get the Republican vote and selling out to get the Dem vote. To me, that is a terrible strategy. I prefer him to be real like his father and speak the truth about how he feels about these shitty wars. But if he is truthful about supporting sanctions against Russia, supporting wars in the middle east, then he is part of the establishment. Either way, I won't vote for him. Besides, who the hell would want to be the President with a massive bond bubble lurking over the… Read more »

Seems like the mind programming has worked on the 'lower classes' of people around the world. Total and complete apathy towards illegality. You hear ALL the time "this is illegal" "It's totally illegal this war" "What the pres' has done is beyond illegal". Or you hear things like "everyone knows that's illegal" "What can you do". If there is an afterlife, I'm sure these words will be burned on to some people for doing absolutely nothing. Nothing at all. I understand it's not really impacted their lives yet, but we're in the process of starting a half/half world war here.… Read more »

I just hope google will keep these videos up forever, so that future generations could learn from this kind of propaganda crap.

You would think that a group as powerful as ISIS would have headed to Israel and free their brothers and sisters from the Israeli occupying government. Wouldn't Palestine be their first priority?

Ron Paul is the only true American in that Shithole they call Congress. He is being over shadowed by the tools of America like that liberal idiot that will spend every ones money Obama and that moron Bush!

Sadly, Ron Paul makes too much sense to be elected. When you need declare 2,000 year old hooey is real and America is a Christian nation to be considered for public office, his chances are slim to none.

A last an American Politician who is willing to tell the Truth. I wonder what he would say about all the Fema Camps.

The last time we stuck our nose in another country's business they attacked our country! This poking a cobra with a stick is stupid! We would not want outside forces interfering in our internal affairs. The U.S. needs to remember what Washington and Jefferson said: "Friends with all Nations! No special foreign entanglements with any nation!" We would not have debt, terror, war, etc…but the U.S. refuses to grow up and mind its own business! This will all end badly!!!

Ron Paul is a Austrian economist also an actor, Hypocrite and a above all, a Racist. Many says that he is also a member of the Cointel-pro rouge network.

Same old stuff, "Bow Down to the Alter of Free Market Capitalism" and we elites may just give just enough Democracy so you can have a piece of cake, but you can't eat it too. BS from Any Randian

Our founders left The Empire of England for peace of mind. Both from Institutionalized Religion in Government. And Constant war! I happen to like those ideas!! Thomas Jefferson had no idea how much money the 'Industrial Military Complex,' could make off of wars and death!!!!!!! RON PAUL WAS CHEATED SHOULD"VE BEEN PREZ !!

Ron Paul is  right in every respect as usual. I am sure a lot of people now wish he won the presidential race. What most of You people have NOT noticed is that Abby Martin is a FOX !!!

Glen Beck most certainly does not disagree with Ron Paul because he supports the establishment. I am a strongly libertarian-leaning conservative, and enthusiastically keep up with both Beck and Paul, but I disagree with Paul on only two issues: (1) I support Israel as the only functioning democracy and the lone bastion of civilization in the Middle East, and (2) I recognize that the violent spread of the fascistic cancer that is Islam results from the tenets of Islam itself rather than short-sighted and willy-nilly American foreign policy.

He's absolutely right to say that, before we launch weapons, soldiers etc at the problem we must identify why the problem has arisen.
 If it's there because US agitators funded, trained and incited mercenary types to form ISIS/L in order to form a pretext for the attack they are so keen to engage us all in, that is surely not a good basis, nor deserves any support.
If we are allowed to vote (that is unless Obama or another has installed him or herself as leader without election) I will vote for Ron Paul – just hope he will stand.

Why is this highly intelligent and experienced politician ignored by the American public? Doesn't that speak volumes about the western population and how they are only able to follow the media and not think for themselves?

7 of the 19 sauids are still alive.   the only middle eastern terrorist arrested in NYC on 9/11 were israelis ..  later released and deported by michael chertoff ..  a dual citizen of israel who's family work for the mossad.

and yet we still bare false witness on muslims all over the world.

The real reason for having American troops in countries with rich deposits of natural resources is to maintain the dollar as the world reserve currency.  It's not about terrorism.  It's really about the bankers maintaining control of money and natural resources.  Our monetary system is really a cartel controlled by a few people without accountability and with the federal reserve as a front.  It is an abusive system that steals by inflation or debt, and controls by using the US military as a stick.  Wake up.  The system is very corrupt, and good people are being robbed by it.  Destroy… Read more »

I will always support Dr. Ron Paul and he is not only intelligent, but so well informed that what he says is so real that most people are completely unable and completely incapable of hearing any truth and realistic actions yet to come… Dr. Ron Paul; The Visionary and Messenger… God works in mysterious ways… open your heart and mind to the sign… Dr. Paul is sent here to warn us… HELLOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the only words, we must wonder if they really are his words, that O`Reilly have to impress is the book "Killing Jesus" and the drama is much better than the book (how much change and the score makes the difference from a book into a movie). Glenn Beck has nothing; both are talking heads without any real journalism, but they bring on tits and blondes, redheads, and brunettes with Botox and collagen injections… blah, blah, blah
