Article from The Liberty Conservative by Shane Trejo.

Former Texas congressman and libertarian icon Ron Paul appeared on his old friend Alex Jones’ radio showthis week to discuss crucial geopolitical issues. The patriot leaders, usually in complete agreement, challenged each other on the issue of North Korea.

“We don’t need to be there. We’re just trying to provoke a problem, and this guy is nuts over there so why provoke them? We’re acting from a sense of insecurity,” Ron Paul said about Trump’s foreign policy.

Paul believes that North Korea poses no threat, and that the dictatorship should be left to its own devices with China and South Korea picking up most of the slack regarding diplomacy. Jones believes that Kim Jong-un poses a serious national security risk to the United States.

“[Kim Jong-un] is goofy,” Paul said. “But I’ll tell you what: He does know what he’s doing because he has to threaten because… he believes that if he gives up and capitulates and does exactly what we tell him to do that what will happen like what happened to Saddam Hussein.”
