Speaking this week with host Rick Sanchez at RT, Ron Paul, who founded the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity in 2013 after leaving the United States House of Representatives, discussed how special interests and executive branch officials work to push the US into wars, including against Iran. In doing so, Paul notes, they seek to overcome the inclination of the American people to oppose intervention overseas.
Special interests promoting military intervention overseas are joined by President Donald Trump who, Paul notes, says selling weapons “is good for business.” Yet, asserts Paul, Secretary of States Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton are more aggressive in their pursuit of such intervention than is Trump.
