Ron Paul: Will Anybody Stop the Islamic State (ISIS)?

How inept our CIA is. It’s pretty good at spying on us, but it can’t predict what the Islamic State, referred to as ISIS, is going to do. ISIS is a response to our government’s involvement in that country. Inadvertently, or perhaps purposely, we have been involved in the Middle East for too long. This has been going on a long time. And now Obama is sending the bombers back to kill people. What a tragedy we have precipitated, and for what? Much of this has been about oil. It’s hard to be non-interventionist when we created the problem. We took all that time to create a government, then ISIS comes along and it just melts away. The sooner we accept non-intervention, the better. After all, the ISIS fighters were funded by the US to fight Assad in Syria.

What are your thoughts on our efforts to stop the Islamic State?
