OK...we all like Ron Paul's consistent position on these wars; Stossel later reasons that "war is just another government program"(that can fail like other government programs)...but then what was he selling early on by saying "...we killed many of the people who attacked us..."? Was that a truthful statement at all?
Was this interview 'opportunist', for ratings? Is Stossel's show in decline? Later in the program he also laments our position in Afghanistan, saying the British and Russians failed when they occupied it; but he didn't say we were an occupying force, and no one discusses that we are babysitting the poppy fields we helped to revive...what is this half-hearted line he is walking?
