Paul: Bush no authority to rule world

Press TV, December 15, 2007



Presidential hopeful Ron Paul

Presidential hopeful Ron Paul says President Bush has started empire-building by invading Iraq and Afghanistan and beating the drums of war with Iran.

The decision to invade Iraq in 2003 without a declaration of war by Congress was the most egregious violation of the Constitution in the last 20 years, Paul told Lahontan Valley News (LVN) prior to a campaign speech in Fallon.

He also rejected that there is any military threat to the US and said "to try to propose that the Iraqis were trying to attack us was ridiculous. Now they are doing it with the Iranians and they have proven wrong again."

During his campaign speech the Republican presidential candidate affirmed that no country has the power to control the world.

"There's no constitutional authority to rule the world," he said.

Regarding the threats the US is facing the Texas congressman said that the Chinese could bring the US to their knees with or without any other nation by just rejecting our dollar.

Paul believes financial problems, Washington's invasion of the US citizens' privacy and taxation are the major threats to the US.
