Ron Paul: Declare victory and leave

With the announced killing of Osama bin Laden, the U.S. should withdraw all troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, says Ron Paul. "There is no reason for our presence in the region – unless indeed it was all about oil, nation-building, and remaking the Middle East and Central Asia."
Hopefully bin Laden does not get the last laugh. He claimed the 9/11 attacks were designed to get the US to spread its military dangerously and excessively throughout the Middle East, bankrupting us through excessive military spending as he did the Soviets, and to cause political dissention within the United States. Some 70 percent of Americans now believe we should leave Afghanistan yet both parties seem determined to stay. The best thing we could do right now is prove bin Laden a false prophet by coming home and ending this madness on a high note.
