by at . Comments

It's hard not to see how Dr. Paul got the better of this one.

At last night's GOP presidential debate in New Hampshire, Newt Gingrich was asked to respond to Ron Paul referring to has a Chicken Hawk in the past.

After a long-winded, largely irrelevant response by Gingrich, Paul said that description of Newt was correct, launching into his own opinions on veterans affairs.

When it comes to the power to wage war, and foreign affairs in general, Paul is unflinching in his views, even if they're diametrically opposed to his counterparts'.

Moreover, Paul reiterated that he, despite being married with children, served in the Vietnam War when drafted. Watch the heated exchange below:

Doctor Paul actually served in the Korean war. He also thinks we should end these endless, un-winnable, wars. (unlike most politicians these days)
