Pushing Russia Into the Cold

By Patrick J. Buchanan A year after taking power, in June 1934, Adolf Hitler made his first visit abroad — to his idol Benito Mussolini in Venice. Babbling on incessantly about “Mein Kampf “and the Negroid strain in Mediterranean peoples, the Fuhrer made a dismal impression. “What a clown this Hitler is,” Mussolini told an […]

Obama’s War?

by Patrick J. Buchanan “We have to be as careful getting out as we were careless getting in,” says Barack Obama of the U.S. war in Iraq. Wise counsel. But is Barack taking his own advice? For he pledges to shift two U.S. combat brigades, 10,000 troops, out of Iraq and into Afghanistan, raising American […]

Bush’s Failure in Pakistan and the World

by Patrick J. Buchanan “Inaction at this moment is suicide for Pakistan, and I cannot allow the country to commit suicide.” Thus did President Gen. Pervez Musharraf declare a state of emergency and invoke martial law. The Supreme Court has been dismissed, the chief justice put under house arrest. A thousand lawyers and political opponents […]

Onward Into Waziristan!

by Patrick J. Buchanan With Hillary Clinton’s lead growing, Barack Obama appears to be overreaching to keep the spotlight and highlight their differences. His suggestion that sex education begin in kindergarten seems a great leap forward even for a liberal Democrat. While Barack says it must be “age-appropriate” sex education, one need not be Roger […]

Is the Bush Doctrine Dead?

by Patrick J. Buchanan – October 17, 2006 Between Sept. 11, 2001, and his State of the Union Address in 2002, George W. Bush had America in the palm of his hand. But in that speech, Bush blew it. Singling out Iran, Iraq and North Korea as state sponsors of terror seeking weapons of mass […]

An Asian Nuclear Arms Race?

by Patrick J. Buchanan If there was any doubt North Korea had mastered the capacity to build nuclear bombs, it has been removed. We have clarity. The effect of North Korea‘s forced entry into the nuclear club, joining the United States, Russia, Britain, China, France, Israel, India and Pakistan, may be as far-reaching as was […]

Losing the Will to Fight

by Patrick J. Buchanan Five years have elapsed since the war on terror began on 9/11. Yet even before nearly 3,000 were killed that day, there had been attacks by Islamic radicals on the World Trade Center, Khobar Towers, our embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, and the USS Cole. U.S. dead in those attacks was […]

US: More Like France Than You Might Think

By Patrick J. Buchanan What a spectacle America at war presents to the world. A former president, red-faced, bawls his rage at Fox News’ Chris Wallace, who had asked why he had not shut down bin Laden and Co. in the seven years he had to do it. The president of the United States declaims […]

Consult America Before Iran War

By Patrick J. Buchanan “To jaw-jaw is always better than to war-war.” So Winston Churchill is widely quoted. Those words, however, were spoken in 1954, decades after Churchill’s voice had been the most bellicose for war in 1914 and 1939, the wars that bled and broke his beloved empire. Yet, Churchill’s quote frames well the […]

Diminishing Options: Defeat Possible in Iraq and Afghanistan

By Patrick J. Buchanan “Whatever mistakes have been made in Iraq, the worst mistake would be to think that if we pulled out, the terrorists would leave us alone. They will not leave us alone. They will follow us. The safety of America depends on the outcome of the battle in the streets of Baghdad.” […]
