North Korea

The Pandora’s Box of Preemptive War

By Ron Paul

There has been much discussion in recent days about the possibility of “preemptive” war with North Korea, a possibility which worries many Americans greatly. Not because anyone believes that North Korea could defeat the United States in war, but because of the worries of our nation finding itself in yet another military conflict. Preemptive war was the topic of discussion on a recent episode of Ron Paul’s Liberty Report.

“We have to fight them over there, so we won’t have to fight them here.” Was it George W. Bush? Nope. The statement goes all the way back to President Truman, who warned that if we didn’t fight the Korean war we’d have to fight commies in Wichita. The whole idea of pre-emptive war is nothing more than false propaganda. Today’s Liberty Report takes on the myths that lead us to war:

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
