Time OpEd: Sen. Rand Paul: U.S. Must Take Strong Action Against Putin’s Aggression

• Daily Paul.com
 

Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is a gross violation of that nation’s sovereignty and an affront to the international community. His continuing occupation of Ukraine is completely unacceptable and Russia’s President should be isolated for his actions.

It is America’s duty to condemn these actions in no uncertain terms. It is our role as a global leader to be the strongest nation in opposing Russia’s latest aggression.

Putin must be punished for violating the Budapest Memorandum, and Russia must learn that the U.S. will isolate it if it insists on acting like a rogue nation.

Are you against Putin's actions regarding the Ukraine? Have you been convinced by some Government figure that Russia is violating international law? Fine! People have differing opinions all over the place.

The thing that is NOT opinion is that it is ILLEGAL BY UNITED STATES FOUNDATIONAL LAW FOR THE UNITED STATES TO TAKE PART IN INTERNATIONAL LAW.

Are you an American? Do you want to use your millions to fight Russian aggression elsewhere in the world? Fine. Go right ahead. BUT DON'T FORCE ME TO DO IT BY USING MY TAX DOLLAR FOR IT. Such a thing is illegal, against U.S. foundational, constitutional law.

Oh, by the way, simply stating that it is Putin's aggression, is a manipulative method to move the nation of Russia into a dictatorship in the eyes of the people. Russia is not a dictatorship. The United States is not a dictatorship under Obama. Place the focus where it belongs... on the rest of the authority of both of these governments. Neither Putin, nor Obama, make their decisions anything like "alone" in either of their respective nations. It is NOT their authority alone, WITHOUT the rest of the authority in their governments, that causes any action to happen.
