by Patrick J. Buchanan – April 16, 2003 No one knows how America’s occupation of Iraq will play out. Optimists say this will be like Germany and Japan after World War II, which were converted into democratic allies for the duration of the Cold War. Pessimists point to Lebanon and Israel’s invasion of 1982. Put […]

by Patrick J. Buchanan – April 14, 2003 It was no cakewalk. But no quagmire either. It was the most awesome display of military power in modern times. At the beginning of the war, Iraqi defenders far outnumbered the U.S. and British invasion force. Yet, from a rolling start, coalition forces took but three weeks […]

by Patrick J. Buchanan – April 7, 2003 At this writing, there seem only two big questions left in the war on Iraq. Will Saddam’s regime in its death throes resort to chemical weapons? How long will it take, and how much blood will it cost, to take Baghdad? But after Baghdad falls, what next? […]

by Patrick J. Buchanan – March 12, 2003 As that latter-day Wilsonian Bill Clinton launched his war on a Serbia that did not attack us, George W.
