Lethal Aid to Ukraine and the Insanity of Perpetual Foreign Intervention

-Ron Paul
It looks like the problems in Ukraine are about to get worse. There is a push now in Washington by the neoconservatives to send $3 billion worth of lethal aid to western Ukraine to further antagonize the Russians and escalate the civil war going on there.

Although we have been very much involved. We’ve had advisors there. We’ve had CIA agents in that country and special forces. We have pretended that we’ve only sent non-lethal aid, but it looks like they’re likely to send lethal aid. If Lindsay Graham has way, he wants thousands and thousands of troops not only going into Ukraine but he wants them to go into Syria as well as into Iraq because things aren’t going that well.
