Ron Paul is a Warmonger

Congressman Ron Paul discusses "Just War Theory" starting at about 4:24 into the video.

The "Just War Theory" is not Christian enough. It allows too much war.

Another take on "Just War Theory" is emerging here:

I agree with Ron Paul, of course, that the Iraq War doesn't even meet the sub-Christian standard of "Just War Theory." I can't imagine the Prince of Peace voting for any other candidate.

229Apparently the video was taken down. I've read Ron Paul's "End the Fed" and he even seemed skeptical that WWII qualifies as a "just war" (note that I don't consider WWII a "just war.") I think its silly to say that Ron Paul is a "warmonger" just because he isn't a total pacifist. I'm not saying he's a perfect man, but he's undeniably a friend to peace. I agree with the rest of what you say, of course, I think its insane that Jesus would support anyone else. (BTW: I'm not a pacifist either, but I think the last justifiable US war was 1812, so I'm pretty much as noninterventionist as one can get without being a pacifist.)
