US congressman Ron Paul says US military interventions around the world show that American politicians are in pursuit of a “world empire”.
US statesmen from both sides of the aisle “are all interventionists, they all believe in the world empire,” said the outspoken Republican congressman in an interview with Russia Today.
Paul made the remarks when asked about President Barack Obama’s decision to assign 17,000 American troops to Afghanistan contingents.
The Texas congressman called Obama’s decision an “outrage”, saying the US has suffered “the most because we’re paying for our foreign intervention overseas.”
