Former Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) recently defended Russian President Vladimir Putin against critics in the United States who had said that he was complicit in the deaths of nearly 300 people because because Russian weapons were likely used to shoot down a Malaysian Airlines plane.As I read this I thought to myself. How is the fool gonna try to bring Obama in to this.
“Everybody’s angling to propagandize and make their position known,” Paul told Newsmax on Friday. “So, I think it would be unwise to say, ‘The Russians did or the Ukraine government did it or the rebels did it.’”
Here we go...
“That may well be true, but guess what, ISIS has a lot of American weapons,” Paul declared. “We sent weapons into Syria to help the rebels and al Qaeda ends up getting it — it doesn’t mean that our American government and Obama deliberately wanted ISIS to get American weapons.”What's this clown's angle by bringing up ISIS?
Oh here it is...
“So even if it was a Russian weapon, it doesn’t mean a lot.”Yeah Ronnie, it doesn't matter that Putin is arming and training these rebel's in Ukraine.
GTFOH with that bullshit.
*As Rachel Maddow expertly reported it takes extensive training to learn how to use these massive anti-aircraft missiles.You don't just find one of these truck mounted systems and learn how to use it on your own.
And of course now that the pied piper himself has given this hairbrained argument, his libertarian army is gonna be repeating this all over the blogs & twitter.
I'm sure it's just a coincidence that Ron is a regular on RT (Russia Today) which is nothing more than Putin's propaganda network designed for American consumption.
