Ron Paul trended on Twitter the other day after Afghanistan fell to the Taliban. So I went to YouTube to check out his speech on the subject and it brought me back to the days when I would binge watch his interviews prior to the 2008 election. His speech on the floor of the Congress is prescient to say the least.
It's amazing that this speech was given 10 full years ago. And furthermore that it was given 10 years after the war started. Already then, in what feels like forever ago, the whole country had war weariness for the Forever War. I recommend revisiting it. (And further recommend ignoring any nonsense coming from warmongering neocons next time they want to invade a country most Americans can't find on a map.)
