No Syrian War to Save Obama’s Face!

By Patrick J. Buchanan “Catastrophic!” said Sen. John McCain. If Congress votes no on a resolution calling for U.S. intervention in Syria’s civil war, says McCain, it would be “catastrophic” for U.S. credibility in the world.

Will Boehner Stop Our Rogue President?

By Patrick J. Buchanan The next 72 hours will be decisive in the career of the speaker of the House.

The Palin Doctrine

By Patrick J. Buchanan On U.S. military intervention in Syria’s civil war, where “both sides are slaughtering each other as they scream over an arbitrary red line ‘Allahu akbar’ … I say let Allah sort it out.” So said Sarah Palin to the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference.

The Unraveling of Sykes-Picot

By Patrick J. Buchanan The thrice-promised land it has been called. It is that land north of Mecca and Medina and south of Anatolia, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Persian Gulf.

Their War, Not Ours

Their War, Not Ours

By Patrick J. Buchanan “The worst mistake of my presidency,” said Ronald Reagan of his decision to put Marines into the middle of Lebanon’s civil war, where 241 died in a suicide bombing of their barracks.
