RT. "The US effort to preserve its global dominance is a costly endeavor based on threats and keeping the American people in the dark about what is going on, told RT former US congressman and libertarian politician Ron Paul."
Ron Paul who leads Ron Paul institute, says he and his colleagues are trying to alert Americans about the dangers of Washington’s foreign policy, which might be detrimental to American interest.
"In the Ron Paul Institute, many believe that “what we are trying to do is maintain a modern day empire,” he said, “and that requires a lot of force and a lot of lying too to misinform people in order for the American people to go along with it.”
Washington’s casual use of sanctions, or threats thereof, is one example of this strong-arm approach. Just this week, US envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, bragged on Fox News that the US sanctions against Iran were “suffocation them”."
