Ron Paul Just Eviscerated Trump’s Hypocritical Afghan War Narrative In An Epic Tweet Storm

Tuesday, August 22, 2017 by

President Trump announced his administration’s strategy for the War in Afghanistan on Monday, and Ron Paul responded with a series of Tweets that echo the sentiments many Americans feel towards the longest war in U.S. history that has now spanned three administrations over 16 years, with no end in sight.

The former Republican presidential candidate and Texas congressman began the evening by saying he was “hoping for the best” with Trump’s address to the nation from Fort Meyer Military Base in Arlington, Virginia. Within minutes, Paul followed up with another Tweet that said simply, “Steve Bannon brakes removed. Neocons feeling their oats.”

As Trump prepared to announce a further extension of the already never-ending war in Afghanistan, he also attempted to pander to the same military personnel who would be leading the charge and risking their lives.

“American patriots from every generation have given their last breath on the battlefield—for our nation and for our freedom,” Trump said. “Through their lives, and though their lives were cut short, in their deeds they achieved total immortality. By following the heroic example of those who fought to preserve our republic, we can find the inspiration our country needs to unify, to heal and to remain one nation under God. The men and women of our military operate as one team, with one shared mission and one shared sense of purpose.”
