Gary Johnson on Iraq

PAUL HARRIS: Jeb Bush’s statement that he would still invade Iraq knowing what we know today.

GARY JOHNSON: Don’t go into Iraq! If we go into Iraq we’re gonna find ourselvese embroiled into a civil war of which there will be no end.

15 May, 2015: Presidential Hopeful Gary Johnson In Reno, KOLO-TV News

GARY JOHNSON: I think it’s a similar situation to Iraq, and I opposed going into Iraq in 2002. We don’t need to do this. I don’t think there are weapons of mass destruction. If there are, I think we have the military surveillance capability to see it. And if it happens, we can go on and deal with it. I thought that if we went in to Iraq, we’re gonna find ourselves in a civil war, to which there would be no end.

10 March, 2012: Interview with Gov. Gary Johnson on Foreign Policy, Israel, War with Iran, Foreign Aid by the Libertarian Party of West Michigan

GARY JOHNSON: Yes, we should provide ourselves with a strong national defense. I think it has gone way beyond that notion. We should be looking at military threats to the United States. That is what we should remain vigilant warrior. I was opposed to us going into Iraq from the very beginning. I did not see a military threat from Iraq. I know a lot of is being said about weapons of mass destruction, but what I thought and what I said was that we have the military surveillance capability to see a rapid roll out any weapons of mass destruction. If we do that, we can go in and address that situation. I thought if we went into Iraq, we would find ourselves in a civil war for which there would be no end.
