The BIG Debate: U.S. Foreign Policy and the War in Iraq

Libertarians Ron Paul & Doug Casey vs. Conservatives Larry Abraham & Dinesh D'Souza

A summary of the points made during the rebuttal:

Doug Casey

* I've got no problem with Israel or the Jews, I just don't want a dog in that fight.
* The state of Israel stole the land that now makes up it's borders from the residents that previously lived there.
* Before the creation of the state of Israel the Muslims and Christians living in the middle east didn't hate the Jews and they all got along fine.
* It's the creation of a state that's the problem where the people who are not controlling the state are disenfranchised.
* It's a big problem, but it's not our problem to solve, they have to work it out for themselves.
* Larry said I have contempt for the country. No! I said I have contempt for the government.
* If you want to kill someone badly enough, you should do it yourself, not get control of a government to do it for you and force others to pay for that action.
