by Patrick J. Buchanan – October 10, 2002 Whatever the wisdom of having a president beat the drums for war, America’s preoccupation with war on Iraq alone prevents a wipeout of the Republican Party in November. War is good politics. While Sept. 11 was a terrible day for America, that day has defined this Bush […]

by Patrick J. Buchanan – October 7, 2002 When Richard Gephardt left the White House with the president’s blessing on a Gephardt-Bush resolution empowering the commander in chief to attack Iraq at a time of his own choosing, congressional resistance instantly crumbled.

Buchanan – October 2, 2002 Threatening to shut down the city, the People’s Strike of the Anti-Capitalist Convergence Alliance stormed into this capital city last week – and went directly to jail without passing Go.

by Patrick J. Buchanan – September 25, 2002 Inherent in the Natural Law right of self-defense is the right to strike first if one’s life is in peril.

by Patrick J. Buchanan – September 23, 2002 With Russia, China, France and Saudi Arabia shifting to back a U.S. invasion, Saddam played his ace of trumps. U.N. inspectors, he told Kofi Annan, can come back in and inspect whatever they wish. The White House was caught flat-footed. But the Russians seized on Saddam’s offer […]
