The Case for War
Paul Ryan says that he and Romney will only take the US to war if the national interests of this country are threatened. He didn't really define this but there are indicators from past actions. While Mitt Romney was dodging the draft of a war that he not only fully supported but a war where he helped organize pro-war protests. That war was Vietnam. A war where there were no clear threats to our national security other than the domino effect of communism. In fact today with the communists still in charge Vietnam has become an important trading partner, Mitt may have even shipped some American jobs over there. Paul Ryan voted for the war in Iraq and Mitt Romney supported it. Again another conflict without a clear threat to the country. So, if they win expect to go into both Syria and Iran not that either country poses a threat to this country. Even if Iran had a bomb they would be incapable of delivering to the United States. If by some miracle they pulled off blowing one up in the US what exactly would happen to Iran? I think that we would no longer have to worry about the Iranians. Syria is simply not a threat and there is no clear good group worthy of our support.
