US congressman Ron Paul says US military interventions around the world
show that American politicians are in pursuit of a "world empire".
US statesmen from both sides of the aisle "are all interventionists,
they all believe in the world empire," said the outspoken Republican
congressman in an interview with Russia Today.
Paul made the remarks when asked about President Barack Obama's decision
to assign 17,000 American troops to Afghanistan contingents.
The Texas congressman called Obama's decision an "outrage", saying the
US has suffered "the most because we're paying for our foreign
intervention overseas."
"But foreign policies don't change; it doesn't change with Democrats or
Republicans," Paul said.
Afghanistan has been the scene of daily violence since the 2001 invasion
of US-led forces who have been seeking to to capture al-Qaeda leader
Osama bin Laden and 'defeat' terrorism by removing the Taliban regime.
President Obama has vowed to change the direction of the 'war on terror'
by lowering US military presence in Iraq and focusing on Afghanistan and
The president says the surge in Afghanistan is "necessary to stabilize a
deteriorating situation in Afghanistan, which has not received the
strategic attention, direction and resources it urgently requires."
According to White House officials, further decisions on sending more
troops to Afghanistan will come after the administration completes a
broader review of its policy in the war-torn country.
