In today’s War Street Journal the former movie reviewer Dorothy Rabinowitz, who now apparently fancies herself as a foreign policy expert (!), calls Ron Paul the chief propagandist of “our enemies.” Let’s see now. The War Street Journal played a major role in lying the nation into the unconstitutional, aggressive war in Iraq that never had anything whatsoever to do with the defense of America. Ron Paul, on the other hand, was the loudest political voice in opposition to this patently un-American assault on constitutionalism and morality. It was Ron Paul who was defending the American way of insisting that Congress be held accountable by officially declaring any wars it enters the nation into. This won’t guarantee non-defensive wars, but it will greatly improve the likelihood of constitutionality when it comes to waging war. It is neocons like Dorothy Rabinowitz who are the enemies of constitutional government, and who are responsible for the breeding of endless enemies of Americans with their cheerleading for endless military interventionism that has nothing to do with defending America. It is neocons like Dorothy Rabinowitz who have the blood of thousands of American soldiers who have died in vain on their hands. It is neocons like Dorothy Rabinowitz who are responsible for tens of thousands of American soldiers who came home from Iraq maimed and crippled for life. It is neocons like Dorothy Rabinowitz who now want the U.S. to start another non-defensive war in Iran, a country four times the size of Iraq which, unlike Iraq, actually has a military that can fight back.
