Press TV Interviews Ron Paul: No such thing as an independent Israel

http://www.presstv.ir/Detail.aspx?id=79752&sectionid=3510302
Press TV: What is your opinion on the idea of the US blocking Iran’s oil exports and preventing its gasoline imports from reaching the country (based on H. Con. Res. 362 previously sought by US congressmen)?
Paul: I think it is an outrage I think it is a blockade. It is the use of force to stop the inflow of petroleum products and people and goods, banking, trains, cars, trucks, cargos. It’s all prohibited. How can we stop that without the use of the navy and without the use of force? This idea is not a blockade it is just pure silliness on their part [US senators and congressmen]. If we bomb them, that’s the start of hostilities. They (US policy makers) are never willing to take anything off the table, which includes a nuclear-first strike. So, if they do that do you think the Iranians are going to sit still? They are going to react! The opposition said that, well, we don’t want them to block the Strait of Hormuz [the Persian Gulf waterway which allows the passages of a third of the world’s daily oil supply]. They ought to change their policy because they are more likely to get the Strait of Hormuz blocked if we persist on this. If we do any bombing or we put on a blockade, it’s going to lead to big trouble.
