Gary North breathed some new life into a magnificent speech given by Ron Paul on the House floor in 2002. I have seen it shared many times in recent days, and it’s also on this weekend’s edition of LewRockwell.com.
How great for Dr. North to dig up a speech that the neocons would surely love everyone to forget.
There is, however, a road that Dr. North did not take. He could have easily said “I told you so too” to draw attention to himself. But he didn’t do that.
So as a gesture of respect, I will bring to your attention some fantastic forward-thinking by Gary North on Iraq.
Dr. North wrote on September 13, 2003:
The dream-spinners who sing of democracy in a stable Iraq have not had a clue from the beginning. Democracy is not going to be imposed on a Muslim country in the Middle East by Western military force. This naive dream of college professors and high-salary foreign policy experts in Washington and the related think tanks will cost American taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars before some future President finally admits defeat and brings the troops home.
