In a Friday interview with host Rick Sanchez at RT regarding the United States government’s assassination of Iran General Qassim Suleimani at the Baghdad International Airport in Iraq, peace advocate and former presidential candidate Ron Paul declared that “the best thing that could happen in the immediate future” is for Iraq to tell the US government to “get out.” Paul, in the interview, also counters the argument that the US had to kill Suleimani “to save American lives,” stating that he feels “less safe” after the assassination.
Watch the complete interview here:
Many Iraqis, including in the nation’s parliament, agree with Paul regarding the presence of US troop in Iraq. The Iraq parliament on Sunday passed a resolution calling for ending the presence of US troops in Iraq, a move Iraq’s prime minister also supports.
