A History Lesson for Ron Paul

This video from Glenn Beck is a little history lesson for the dangerously naive Congressman Ron Paul.

Ron Paul claims that all attacks against America are based on the American government meddling in the foreign policies of other countries.

He couldn't be more wrong.

Ron Pauls ignorance betrays a very basic fact of human nature.

There are evil and dangerous people out there in the world who want to kill you and take everything you have.

While I won't deny that a few attacks against America have, indeed, been policy based.... many other attacks have happened simply due to the evil nature of the perpetrators.

Muslims, for example, have a history of over one thousand years of violence, rape, robbery, and murder of non-Muslims.

Google "Barbary Pirates" and find out how they were attacking Europe for much of the 1500s through the 1600s. They captured and enslaved over 1 million Europeans.

Politics had nothing to do with it.

Eventually, their raids on our European shipping caused Thomas Jefferson to create the United States Marine Corps to go over to North Africa to fight them.

Memo to Ron Paul.

Muslims in the Mediterranean were killing people over 200 years ago.

We hadn't dropped a single bomb on them.
America barely even existed at the time.

Their hostile attitude has never changed.
