WASHINGTON, September 10 (RIA Novosti) - Thirteen years after the tragic events of 9/11 the world is more uncertain than it has ever been, Congressman Walter B. Jones stated.
"The agencies of law enforcement, from local state and federal have done a modifying job trying to protect the American people, but when you can't secure your border, when you get people coming from Central and South America, it could be some people coming from the Middle East or Honduras and other countries, who come up here illegally... I don't know," Jones told RIA Novosti on Tuesday. "I'm just saying that we have to be on our tonus, because the world is more uncertain today than has ever been."
"I'm not an isolationist, I just think that America going in to remove Saddam Husein was a serious mistake," Jones stressed. "We have 4 thousand young Americans killed, 30 thousand wounded and a hundred thousand Iraqis. Saddam was an evil man, but if Saddam was still in power, I don't think we would have ISIS today."
Jones emphasized that the United States should stop to police the world.
"I think about the fact that America is doing the bombing in Iraq. How about the French dropping bombs? How about the Germans dropping bombs? How about the English dropping bombs? It's always America dropping the bombs," he said.
"We can't secure our borders here in America. We can't pay our bills, we raise the debt ceiling. It just doesn't make sense. This country needs to start rebuilding itself," Jones concluded.
