Pat Buchanan on Gullible America

I've heard so many disparaging remarks about Pat Buchanan. I think he's pretty good. He's spot on again in todays commentary at on efforts to lead us to war.

About the only difference I have with him in this case is that cooler minds seem to have prevailed over the latest hoax. I'll give Obama credit for that, though this is far from over and he does seem determined on creating an issue with Iran.
I don't often comment on foreign affairs here or elsewhere. I did in regards what I felt was the latest attempt by powers- that- be to incite an attack on Syria. It looks like the second cry of chemical weapons use might be another hoax by the rebels.

I suspected it was from the get- go. I'll admit many I heard from were skeptical, too, but that even a few fell for it was a sad commentary on how easily some are swayed.

It would be foolhardy for the Assad regime to use chemical weapons. They have the west biting at the bit to attack them. Why give them an excuse? They'd have much to lose and nothing to gain by doing so.

On the other hand, the rebels have every reason to create an incident. I wouldn't put it past them to create an incident- real or fabricated- even if it meant making a crude chemical weapon to use on their own people. Then they could get the U.S. and the British to do their bidding for them. They'd have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
That's hopefully my last foreign affairs commentary for a while.

"Henchman Of Justice" says,

The thing about the Pat Buchanon article was that thoughts of American nosiness to change that part of the world kept "popping-up". Then, of course, the realization that the leadership American voters have allowed to be nosey are from the two-party system.

Simple Reality Check - both Democrats and Republicans favor war over peace/trade relationships. War is better for a plethora of political reasons. Of course, most local two-party system supporters may not favor war over peace, but the leaders they put into office seem to favor war over peace. Must be more power and wealth in inciting negative behavior. - HOJ

HOJ Is right and it's already a proven fact that we're supporting al Qaeda aKA the rebels aka the Islam Brotherhood. I find it funny that everybody's afraid of Iran that swears up and down their not developing nuclear weapons North Korea on the other hand has nuclear weapons and is openly threatened us several times. The real reason is Iran is moving close to developing a 4th independent oil market a market that does not rely on the American dollar as the main exchange currency if enough countrys start to use this market they would not have as much need for the American dollar which would send trillions of dollars back to us thus causing hyperinflation and the collapse of the bond bubble which would be very bad for us has anybody else notice the flipping now it's not al Qaeda thats the danger to America is white Christians with guns so says the LA times and the DHS
