Ron Paul's answer for Iran's nuclear threat

from Philip Weiss at Mondoweiss:
On television today Ron Paul said that friendship with Iran is the answer.

"The Texas congressman says fears about Iran's nuclear program have been "blown out of proportion." He says tough penalties are a mistake because, as he says was the case in Iraq, they only hurt the local population and still paved a path to war. When asked on "Fox News Sunday" what he would do to deter Iran's alleged nuclear ambitions, Paul said 'maybe offering friendship to them'."

Do you wonder why some on the left support the paleo-conservative isolationalism of Ron Paul? They share a philosophy of foreign policy: Magical Realism.

Funny how Paul seems to be a favorite at Mondoweiss, despite his quasi-authoritarian beliefs and racism (both his and acquaintances). Seeing as how Weiss links to the American Conservative (and has even written for it if I'm not wrong), I suppose he and his ilk can share a large septic tank together.

PS You've mentioned Ron Paul, so expect some of his loyal internet drones to stop by.
