Iraq Collapse Shows Bankruptcy of Interventionism: Ron Paul

May was Iraq's deadliest month in nearly five years, with more than 1,000 dead –both civilians and security personnel --in a rash of bombings, shootings and other violence.

As we read each day of new horrors in Iraq, it becomes more obvious that the US invasion delivered none of the promised peace or stability that proponents of the attack promised.

We must learn the appropriate lessons from the disaster of Iraq.

We cannot continue to invade countries, install puppet governments, build new nations, create centrally-planned economies, engage in social engineering, and force democracy at the barrel of a gun.

The rest of the world is tired of US interventionism and the US taxpayer is tired of footing the bill for US interventionism.
