Skip to comments.Pat Buchanan Oddly Thinks Israel is a Bigger Threat Than Iran
Posted on 02/22/2012 4:19:15 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Pat Buchanan, the columnist, author, and until recently MSNBC's token right-winger, garnered a lot of sympathy when he was fired from his job at the left-leaning news network apparently because of a book he wrote.
Too bad, as reported in the Daily Caller, Buchanan had to ruin things by articulating how obnoxious his views really are. In essence, he suggested that Israel with its 300 estimated nuclear weapons was a bigger threat to the United States than is Iran with its nuclear program on Russian television.
Buchanan went on about how his favorite Jewish conspiracy, which he called the "neocons," is itching for war with Iran, for no good reason according to him.
Mind, by Buchanan's logic, Great Britain and France are really big threats, owing to the fact that they have nuclear arsenals as well.
Buchanan makes a common mistake that other people such as Ron Paul have made to equate Iran having nuclear weapons to the old Soviet Union having nuclear weapons. The Soviet Union during the Cold War, just as Iran is today, was run by murderers and thugs. Yet the Soviets did not launch a nuclear strike at the United States because it knew that the USSR would have been annihilated by the retaliation attack. By that logic, Israel's nuclear arsenal would provide a sufficient deterrent against Iran using whatever nuclear weapons it acquires.
Only it won't. Unlike the leaders of the old Soviet Union, the rulers of the Iranian theocracy do not care if their country is destroyed in a nuclear war. For the rulers of Iran, a nuclear strike on Israel would be the ultimate suicide bombing....

I don't believe anything in the liberal mainstream media.
They know how to lie, twist , take out of context etc. The media are pure evil marxist/democrat activists. The media are the most evil creatures I have ever witnessed. The media has run this country for 100 years, growing government and pushing the U.S. towards socialism. Now the media has us going into the abyss with all this spending by their candidate Obama which the media installed by smearing Sarah Palin. The media are fully responsible for every problem we have.
To be honest I like Pat Buchanan because he, just like Lou Dobbs is one the few USA patriots still left in the MSM that supports defending USA borders and USA industry first.
Most of these commie MSM traitors support putting the USA interests somewhere between 2nd or 4th place. If the USA goes to war it must be in only our USA interest first.”
Great post and very true.
The media said Palin caused that killer to shoot that congresswoman and other people. So are we to believe them then and here too? The media are traitors , they are for destroying the U.S. border and the U.S. and they are for destroying Palin and Buchanan and anything that is good.
So which country does this fruitcake identify as a great threat?
Speaks for itself.
Oddly? I think it would only seem odd to someone who hasn’t noticed already that Buchanan is a not very closeted antisemite.
"Come on now everyone, we should feel sorry for Pat Buchanan, his uncle died in Auschwitz. He fell out of a guard tower."
Israel is our only reliable ally in one of the most important strategic regions in the world, one which is bound to become more important in the future and not less. Besides Israel, there is not a single country in that area with which we could ally and have any kind of true confidence in their support if a conflict were to emerge in the region.
Israel is one of our most valuable partners in the war against terrorists, for many reasons. Their experience dealing with terrorists and their tactics is unparalleled, they have developed strategies to deal with them that are effective, and they have the most competetant, reliable, and comprehensive intelligence apparatus in the Muslim world. Without their help, we would be hard pressed to duplicate those advantages, if it were even possible.
They are also a key purchaser of many of our military systems, and not only are they more competent at maintaining and operating them than most of our partners, they have continually come up with innovations to these systems which they have shared freely with us. Many Israeli innovations have been incorporated back into our own systems, saving us money and increasing our military’s effectiveness. They also happen to be one of the world’s leading powers in the emerging realm of cyber-warfare, where they are probably in the top 3 countries, along with the US and China.
That's the key point.
To be blunt, losing which American city is in our national interest?
Buchannan is an Effing Sodomite and Anti-Semitic A-hole!
Buchanan can be the Middle East expert at the University of Iran, or Obama University. The Sampson Option and educate yourself. A book written by a reporter definitely NOT sympathetic to Israel.
Among other gems the book asserts that the first Israeli targets during the height of the cold war was...
The southern Soviet Union! Same country as the US nuclear targets.
Why do you suppose?
The notion that the U.S. would demand that Israel today risk physical anihilation to appease a cartel that would be criminally prosecuted in the U.S. is shameful, immoral and impossible to justify.
OK - the MSM reported something and you believe it. If you trust and believe them that is your prerogative. Millions of Americans have and do, and that’s why we have become immersed in their propaganda. The last source in the world that I will ever blindly believe and trust is the USA MSM.
If the MSM says it is black it is really white. They want us to think it is black because their owners have investments in black pigment. Is that being overly cynical or is it based upon their history of misreporting? Glenn Beck knows how the USA media works. They report only what they are told to do from politicians and interests.
They are a major factor in the untold corruption within the USA.
It wouldn’t be “a war with Iran for Israel” as you put it. Iran could threaten Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, the UAE, Turkey and many other countries in the area, with just the missiles they have now. Many of those places provide a lot of the world’s oil. Imagine the world economy (including ours) with no oil.
A Pat Buchanan thread just isn't complete until somebody posts that joke.
I don’t trust the USA media because have motives, and they want profits and they want to convince the masses of their motives. There is only one country in the world that I give a flying xxxx about. It is the only country that will always be the homeland for my progeny. The others mean nothing to me. I care about the USA. Do I care if others get wiped off the face of the Earth? Yes but in comparison to the USA it means nothing.
Iran’s governing Mullahs have called for the destruction of the US on multiple occasions. They have funded and armed terrorists, who attack Americans. If you care about the US, how can you not consider Iran a threat?
That's not actually what he said. Listen to the clip.
Buchanan may have been wrong. He may have been outrageous. But it's not what he said, or suggested.
When the writer doesn't actually quote the words he wants people to get so angry about it can be a sign that he's not up front about what happened.
No country is a military threat to the USA especially Iran. Our only real threat is the ongoing loss of our liberty and treasury and the fascists who want more for them and less for the USA. Which is exactly what this so called WOT is now doing to us, while making a select few greedy sleazy opportunists rich, and giving corrupt politicians and media the ability to control the foolish masses.
We need to end this war on terror now politically before our children and grandchildren have neither liberty nor country. Another trillion dollar war will destroy us. We need real Patriots instead of owned neocon dual loyalist political opportunists.
