Congressman Ron Paul: Sanctions on Iran is an Act of War

Sanctions on Iran is an Act of War

Posted By Rep. Ron Paul On April 22, 2010

Before the US House of Representatives, April 22, 2010, Statement on Motion to Instruct Conferees on HR 2194, Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act.

I rise in opposition to this motion to instruct House conferees on HR 2194, the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act, and I rise in strong opposition again to the underlying bill and to its Senate version as well. I object to this entire push for war on Iran, however it is disguised. Listening to the debate on the Floor on this motion and the underlying bill it feels as if we are back in 2002 all over again: the same falsehoods and distortions used to push the United States into a disastrous and unnecessary one-trillion-dollar war on Iraq are being trotted out again to lead us to what will likely be an even more disastrous and costly war on Iran. The parallels are astonishing.
We hear war advocates today on the Floor scare-mongering about reports that in one year Iran will have missiles that can hit the United States. Where have we heard this bombast before? Anyone remember the claims that Iraqi drones were going to fly over the United States and attack us? These “drones” ended up being pure propaganda – the UN chief weapons inspector concluded in 2004 that there was no evidence that Saddam Hussein had ever developed unpiloted drones for use on enemy targets. Of course by then the propagandists had gotten their war so the truth did not matter much.
We hear war advocates on the floor today arguing that we cannot afford to sit around and wait for Iran to detonate a nuclear weapon. Where have we heard this before? Anyone remember then-Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice’s oft-repeated quip about Iraq, that we cannot wait for the smoking gun to appear as a mushroom cloud?
We need to see all this for what it is: Propaganda to speed us to war against Iran for the benefit of special interests.
Let us remember a few important things. Iran, a signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, has never been found in violation of that treaty. Iran is not capable of enriching uranium to the necessary level to manufacture nuclear weapons. According to the entire US Intelligence Community, Iran is not currently working on a nuclear weapons program. These are facts, and to point them out does not make one a supporter or fan of the Iranian regime. Those pushing war on Iran will ignore or distort these facts to serve their agenda, though, so it is important and necessary to point them out.
Some of my well-intentioned colleagues may be tempted to vote for sanctions on Iran because they view this as a way to avoid war on Iran. I will ask them whether the sanctions on Iraq satisfied those pushing for war at that time. Or whether the application of ever-stronger sanctions in fact helped war advocates make their case for war on Iraq: as each round of new sanctions failed to “work” – to change the regime – war became the only remaining regime-change option.
This legislation, whether the House or Senate version, will lead us to war on Iran. The sanctions in this bill, and the blockade of Iran necessary to fully enforce them, are in themselves acts of war according to international law. A vote for sanctions on Iran is a vote for war against Iran. I urge my colleagues in the strongest terms to turn back from this unnecessary and counterproductive march to war.

    Ron Paul challenges GOP’s foreign policy agenda

    http://dailycaller.com/2010/04/20/ron-paul-challenges-gops-foreign-policy-agenda/

    04/20/10 by Doug Bandow

    It has been nearly a decade since President George W. Bush chose arrogance over humility as the basis of American foreign policy. The intervening years have not been good for the United States or the Republican Party. As the GOP seeks to take back the White House it needs to conduct a serious foreign policy debate. Republicans should start by listening to Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas).

    At the recent Southern Republican Leadership Conference big spending Mitt Romney bested Rep. Paul by just one vote in the popularity contest. Yet Paul eschewed reliance on easy applause lines and challenged the newfound Republican fondness for big militaries and constant wars.

    For instance, Paul observed that conservatives, like liberals, enjoyed spending money, only “on different things. They like embassies, and they like occupation. They like the empire. They like to be in 135 countries and 700 bases.”

    Similarly, Paul said, conservatives talked about following the Constitution, “except for war. Let the president go to war anytime they want.”

    Paul garnered applause from more youthful members of the audience. But boos were heard as well. Many establishment GOP activists appear to have become wedded to a big-government foreign policy.

    When Politico polled activists and analysts about why the GOP mainstream was hostile to Paul, James Carafano of the Heritage Foundation complained that “The deliberate self-weakening of America is an invitation to disaster.” Carafano argued that Paul failed to fulfill the constitutional obligation to “provide for the common defense” and that the latter’s vision would not keep America “safe, free, and prosperous.”

    Yet Washington’s policy of promiscuous intervention is not providing for America’s “common defense.” Rather, the U.S. is protecting virtually every other nation. That’s one reason why the Pentagon was incapable of defending Americans when the U.S. was attacked on 9/11,

    Indeed, the “Defense Department” has become anything but. Most of America’s forces do nothing to secure the U.S. They instead are employed to remake failed societies, impose Washington’s meddlesome dictates, and subsidize populous and prosperous allies.

    Do the Europeans want someone to stop a civil war in Yugoslavia? They leave it to Americans. Do the Georgians want someone to protect them after they start a war with Russia? Tbilisi begs Washington.

    Do the South Koreans hope to subsidize North Korea while someone else guarantees their security? The South Korean “Blue House” calls the American “White House.” Do the Japanese want to concentrate on economic development while leaving the protection of regional security to another country? They turn to the U.S. Do the Israelis want someone else to disarm Iran? They call on Washington.

    And in every case the Republican elite willingly answers “yes,” spending Americans’ money to provide for most every other nations’ defense.

    The Europeans might have a larger collective GDP and population. The South Koreans might enjoy a GDP 40 times that of the North. Japan might have the world’s second largest economy. Israel might be a regional superpower with up to 200 nuclear weapons.

    Yet in GOP eyes all are helpless American dependents, to be defended by Washington at all cost—and apparently forever.

    This policy has made America weaker. We are less “safe, free, and prosperous” as a result.

    America’s safety is compromised because we are more often at war and at risk of war. Indeed, intervening promiscuously and setting tripwires around the world has kept the U.S. involved in conflict almost constantly after the Cold War.

    Iraq is the most obvious disaster. More than 4,000 dead and tens of thousands maimed or injured Americans. Total cost likely to hit $2 trillion. The U.S. military overstretched. Iran’s strategic position greatly strengthened.

    In fact, many Republican legislators apparently have come to recognize reality in Iraq. When asked how many GOP congressmen believed that the Iraq war had been a mistake, a panel of three Republican members at a recent Cato Institute conference agreed: “almost all of us.”

    But it could be far worse. It appears that top Bush administration officials debated launching air strikes against Russian forces during Moscow’s conflict with Georgia.

    Ponder the thought: After the U.S. made it through the Cold War without getting into a shooting match with the Soviet Union, Washington officials considered attacking that nuclear-armed power to defend a country which: by most accounts other than its own started the fighting; was not party to any military alliance or treaty with America; and was irrelevant to U.S. security. Had the administration initiated military action, the unsuspecting American people could have found themselves in a nuclear confrontation and even war in August 2008.

    Such are the risks to Americans’ safety when their government plays globocop.

    The national security state also has made Americans less free. A century ago social critic Randolph Bourne observed: “War is the health of the state.”

    The U.S. was created as a constitutional republic, with a limited national government bounded by law. Yet the last Republican administration claimed that the president could unilaterally, subject to review neither by Congress nor the courts, order the arrest and indefinite detention of American citizens in America. In effect, the president asserted that he was an elected monarch or dictator, presumed infallible and beyond reproach. The defining characteristic of the so-called Patriot Act and other such enactments was not the expansion of federal power, but the refusal to hold accountable those who exercised the new power.

    Finally, Americans are less prosperous. While U.S. citizens pay to defend dozens of nations around the world, those countries invest in business enterprises, economic research and development, and generous welfare states. Trade competitors cheerfully accept U.S. military troops while excluding commercial products.

    The defense budget is the price of our nation’s foreign policy, and the price is high. The U.S. is spending more than $700 billion annually on the military. In real terms that is more than at any point during the Cold War, Korean War, or Vietnam War. Today America accounts for roughly half of the globe’s military outlays.

    This is a year when the deficit will run almost $1.6 trillion. When America faces $10 trillion in deficits over the next decade. When Washington’s debt is climbing skyward. And when Social Security and Medicare face unfunded liabilities of an astounding $107 trillion.

    Yet Americans, like Ron Paul, who advocate a policy to actually make America safer, freer, and wealthier, are routinely vilified by Republican apparatchiks. The Bush administration and its neoconservative supporters accused opponents of being defeatists and even traitors. Politico guest contributor Robert White was more mild, merely accusing Paul of preaching “isolationism and appeasement” and of not appearing to be “strong on national defense.”

    For these Republicans opposition to bombing or invading other nations is “isolationist.” Failing to view war or the threat of war as the best response to every foreign problem is “appeasement.”

    In fact, war should always be a last resort, a matter of necessity rather than choice. And we can learn much from the Cold War: there were enthusiastic advocates of preventive war against both the Soviet Union and China, but deterrence kept the peace against the likes of Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong. In retrospect the latter policy looks good compared to the potential of triggering World War III.

    Moreover, intervention and conflict beget intervention and conflict. America’s troubles with Iran began in 1953 with the CIA-backed coup d’etat against the democratically elected government. Washington’s support for the autocratic Shah sowed the seeds which turned into the 1979 Islamic revolution.

    Fear of aggressive Islamic fundamentalism caused the Reagan administration to back Saddam Hussein in the 1980s after he invaded Iran. That encouraged Baghdad to invade Kuwait. Then came the first Gulf War and Washington’s stationing of troops in Saudi Arabia. Those forces later were targeted in the Khobar barracks bombings; the U.S. presence also inflamed hostility from the likes of Osama bin Laden.

    According to Paul Wolfowitz, a desire to bring home those forces was a benefit of the Iraq war. But the Iraq invasion empowered Iran, now accused of pursuing the Shah’s dream of nuclear weapons. So Washington’s sofa samurai are demanding that bombers be sent forthwith against Tehran.

    It would have been much better in 1953 had Washington’s coup plotters stayed home. Much brutality, war, and horror might have been avoided.

    Ron Paul isn’t likely to be the GOP presidential nominee in 2012 whatever position he takes on foreign policy. But for the last decade GOP politicians have inflated foreign threats, ignored military costs, and disregarded America’s interests in their search for political advantage. If the Republican Party wants to return to power—and especially if it genuinely wants to keep America “safe, free, and prosperous”—it will engage rather than dismiss Rep. Paul’s critique of U.S. foreign policy.

  • Thumbs up for Ron Paul! Thumbs down to his son Rand whos catering to Aipac and suddenly differs from his father on Forgien policy. I think its a discrace you have to win an election like that. Ron Paul and a handfull of others didnt.. I withdraw my support . I beleive hell win because hes high up in the poles. But if he wins and still continues to be bought off by aipac just to keep his job, and forget the American people,his careers more important,then I hope theres a real revolution. Then again he may win and do whats right. I wonder what Ron Paul thinks about all this. Yet like there are Obama zombies out ther, There will be Rand Paul Zombies out there too. Its a shame, because now hes for santions on Iran and mabey worse.

    Tora Tora Tora December 7 1941 8:30 AM Hawaii time were the Japanese code words for America being drag into a another war.

  • J.Lat says:

    I feel compelled to preface my remarks with the following: Ron Paul attempts to sound intelligent by cramming as many big words into a sentence as possible, whether they are used correctly or not. To begin at the beginning, the world would be better off if Ron had never been born. If that fact hurts, get over it; it’s called reality. And for another dose of reality, consider that we must understand that we must stand united as free, sovereign individuals and convince larrikinism-prone serpents to stop supporting Ron and tolerating his bromides. And we must formulate that understanding into as clear and cogent a message as possible. While freely conceding that his jibes have a tremendous infiltrating force and a serious degenerative power, I do avouch that Ron claims to be supportive of my plan to detail the specific steps and objectives needed to thwart his hopeless schemes. Don’t trust him, though; he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Before you know it, he’ll use psychological tools to trick us into doing whatever he requires of us. Not only that, but unless you define success using the sort of loosey-goosey standards by which Ron abides you’ll realize that true measures of success involve responding to Ron’s arguments. Success is getting the world to see that if Ron can one day sacrifice our essential liberties on the altar of political horse-trading then the long descent into night is sure to follow. I could be wrong about any or all of this, but at the moment, the above fits what I know of history, people, and current conditions. If anyone sees anything wrong or has some new facts or theories on this, I’d love to hear about them.

  • J.Lat says:

    P.S. I am a pretentious, pompous, illiterate, know-little who can be quite safely ignored.

  • Jeannon Kralj says:

    I am tempted to just say, Bravo, Congressman Paul. What he says is true and it is wrong on every level to incite a war against Iran.

    Mr. Bandow’s comments also, in a surface way, appear correct.

    But both men do not acknowledge the FACT that 9/11 was planned and orchestrated from within the top levels of the US military and intelligence apparatus. There is considerable circumstatial evidence that those individuals who can be descibed as “Zionists” and individuals in our government who hold dual citizenship with Israel were the planners and perpetrators of 9/11.

    Until that FACT is acknowledged and dealt with, and it won’t ever be, all of these debates about another unjust war to bring about the one world death and slavery system are just more lies and theater to me.

  • Grover says:

    J.Lat: you write a lot and say very little in your response. You offer no substantiation for your arguments. Perhaps one might accuse you of being guilty of the very thing for which you attack Ron Paul. Opinions are fine, but when they are presented in the manner in which you present yours they lack any real substance. The majority of Americans probably prefer information this way as they do not have to really think; they can read whatever they want into such generalities and come to their own subjective conclusions. At least Ron Paul challenges one to THINK. I would think you agree that this is probably a good thing, especially for Americans, no?

  • Cold Wind says:

    The fact is Israel, which has repeatedly refused to sign onto the NPT agreements, is in non-compliance with the NPT accords (not Iran), while, at the same time, Israel has threatened to use its vast nuclear arsenal to wipe out its adversaries in the middle east and ‘elsewhere’. It and not Iran is thus a continual threat to world peace. Imposing yet new sanction against Iran is indicative of Israel’s stranglehold on US policy. Ron Paul is right: attacking Iran serves Israel and not the US.

  • Richard Thomas Prows says:

    The earth this time is to be distroyed not by water- but by FIRE. We have world war one, world war two, korea, Viet Nam, & all these other wars (declared or not). The USA is a waring country.

  • Harv says:

  • Ron says:

    I doubt very seriously if the world would be a better place without Ron Paul.
    I doubt that very much and since I see this through eyes of one of the survivors of the deliberate attack on the USS Liberty by the Israeli Defense
    Force, I have a very differnet perspective. First of all our government has kept this hidden from the American People for over forty years now and doesn’t ever plan to release the still classified information about the attack. Now some will just say get over it, and I will say you want me to get over the murdering of 34 American Sailors, Marines, and Civilians? Fat chance I would say to you, and only if you had seen what was done to us and been a part of recovering the bodies and cleaning up would you ever understand. This was an act of war against our nation and we ignored it just as sanctions against Iran are an act of war. Soon we will have no friends left in this world. I think we are almost there already.

  • Carl Coon says:

    Bravo for Ron Paul! He is right on target for the Iran sanctions issue and more broadly on America’s slide into imperial folly. On that, I want to comment on the perceived wisdom that our ability to apply military force anywhere in the world represents a triumph for our country, a GOOD THING. I personally would be quite satisfied with a US military capability that would allow us to respond decisively against anyone who threatened our own territory, while allowing us to participate effectively with our allies in the common defense of joint interests.

    That is a quite different matter. We would not feel obliged to keep military bases all over the world, prohibitively expensive and frequently causing problems with host countries. We would not consider it our unique responsibility to serve as the world’s policeman. We would not even consider acting unilaterally to initiate wars of choice, because in most cases we would not have the capability.

    We would be able to downsize our military establishment drastically, saving the hundreds of billions annually that we will need to save if we are to put our economy back on a sound basis and salvage the international position of the dollar, let alone fixing our schools and other infrastructure.

    At present we are behaving like an empire not like a republic. Great military power aggregated in one capital leads to imperial ambitions vis-a-vis the rest of the world and the rapid erosion at home of the democratic base, as a military-industrial complex assumes ever more power. Rome. Nazi Germany. The pattern is there, varying in detail but not in its overall trajectory.

    Anyone who see America’s destiny in imperial terms needs more exposure to our history. Our forefathers’ view of our country’s future was the antithesis of what it is now becoming. As matters stand now, our republic is at risk, but it’s not the immigrants who threaten it, it is the military-industrial establishment and the media barons who rationalize its efforts to further strengthen their control of the levers of power.

    Words have been turned upside down. So-called conservatives are trying for a kind of rolling coup that will transform America beyond anything the founding fathers ever contemplated. The much-maligned liberals are trying to resist the onslaught, maintain the basic democratic principles that made us such a special place two hundred years ago.

  • mystic says:

    I was just in a bus when I saw a Jewish family eating a picnic IN THE BUS. A woman reprimanded them and indicated a sign which said that eating in the bus was not allowed. The parents arrogantly went on eating, the mother saying: “Why don’t you mind your own business?” The woman replied: “If the parents break the rules, the children will break the rules when they grow up”. The fact is that most Jews in New York anyway seem to think that the rules never apply to them.

    Extrapolate that to the rest of the world.

    When Germany was in the midst of the Great depression in 1932, most of the banks and other financial institutions were owned by Jews and were conducting their business fraudulently much like they are doing today in America.Hitler addressed this problem, but the arrogant Jews thought “Who the hell is this guy to talk to us about rules?” ; Hitler came to power in Jan 33, and the next month the Reichstag fire was set.Despite the warning signs, the Jews, much like the parents in the bus,thought the rules did not apply to them and in March 33, the Jews in Germany declared an economic war on Germany in an attempt to bring it to its knees.

    http://guardian.150m.com/jews/jews-declare-war.htm

    Now wasn’t that clever? The first concentration camps were being built just at that time, and there were 50 at the end of 1933.
    I see a parallel to the Jews today who don’t seem to learn from history.They’re even more cocky than they were in 1932 and still think that domestic and international laws don’t apply to them. Israel’s telling the rest of the world to f*ck off just like they told Hitler; Israel’s behaviour, with the diaspora’s complicit silence, sees the explosion of anti-Semitism but is too cocky and arrogant to stop behaving like a pack of wild animals,and Jewish bankers and Wall Street gunnavim in America have run amuck stealing trillions of dollars from the American taxpayers.
    Israel gets the American suckers to fight its wars without shedding a drop of Israeli blood. Iraq, Afghanistan and soon Iran.
    Jews are acting like vermin, just like they have done for 2000 years and that’s why they were kicked out of every country they lived in. And when they finally got their own country, they’re even worse. Now they want to rule the world.
    As a Jew myself I disown myself from all this barbarism. The Jewish law, the Torah expressly commands “Thou shalt not kill; Thou shalt not steal”
    But Jews think God’s commandments do not apply to them, and that the Talmud written by a pack of vilda chayas (wild animals)only applies to them.
    I pray that this madness stops soon.

  • John Taurus says:

    Americans are Israeli slaves. Washington DC is Israeli occupied territory. Americans fight and pay for Israel’s wars. Americans, who are bankrupt from paying for Israel’s wars, are sending billions of dollars they don’t have to Israel. We Israel is through screwing America, America will be discarded like a used condom, like the whore she has become! How do you keep a slave happy? Remind the slave often that he/she is “free”. Never, ever let the slave know he/she is a slave. Tell the slave he is “fighting” for freedom. Give the slave a vote in a farce called an “election” where all the candidates are puppets for the Zionist masters. This war coming on Iran is to finalize the securing of a clear zone around the new world capital, Israel. In Israel, the masters can rest in peace, secure in the knowledge that the slaves must cross a secure zone to reach the big house.

  • Skeeb L. Rogers says:

    On 4-24-10 article in The Atlanta Journal & Constitution: Iran to Expand U.N. Nuclear Inspections – “Iran agreed to give the U.N. nuclear monitoring agency greater inspection and monitoring rights to a site where it is enriching uranium to higher levels, diplomats said Friday. The move indirectly confirmed by a senior Iranian envoy comes as Tehran mounts a diplomatic offensive meant to stave off new U.N. sanctions for its defiance of Security Council demands that it curb nuclear activities that could be used to make weapons.” (From News Services)

    Israel refuses to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, has ignored numerous Security Council demands, arrested one of its own for telling about Israel’s vast nuclear arsenal, yet has the gall to want Iran sanctioned? It continues illegal expansions and arrests of its victims under the illegal occupation. Would Iran agreeing to ANYthing appease the Israelis and their corrupt armchair warriors in the US who are on the dole for millions of $ from Israel’s lobbies? Bribes to buy their votes and opinions in favor of Israel no matter what crimes it commits? No, it would not. Israel wants Iran destroyed just as the beautiful country of Iraq was, the Cradle of Civilization, and the poverty stricken Afghanistan for hegemony and greed? Iraq is a small country, and had only around 17 million people when the first Bush bombed it! At least 2 million of them were killed and injured, hundreds of thousands went into exile to save their children! The Vatican issued a statement recently that all of the M.E. tormoil is due to the illegal occupation by Israel. The world is tired of unnecessary wars that only creates hatred and misery and is bankrupting America and robbing it of hundreds of thousands of young soldiers.

    Yes, indeed, this is about demolishing our military and reducing it to virtually nothing and destroying our soldiers, thus providing no effective resistance when the real invasion of our nation begins in earnest. I believe that is what Putin needed Kissinger to reassure him about back last year when Kissinger told Putin “Don’t worry, we will have Americans under control by Sept”, and at the time we were not sure whether he was talking about Sept 2009, or Sept 2010. I suspected 2010, because there was no way he would have us under control by 2009 which was only two months away.

    Its going to be that depopulation war they have been planning. So, I say, if there is a nuke false flag, then immediately, we the people declare war on the bankers and Israel and target only that enemy and fight no other, and watch how fast this all ends once we rid us of those pervert pedophiles doing this to us. HOW DID WE EVER LET A BUNCH OF DRUGGED UP PEDOPHILES GET CONTROL OF THIS NATION???? We had to have been asleep for a very long time for that to happen. Well, now its going to really cost us to get it back.
