You can always trust Pat Buchanan to side with America’s adversaries. And this is probably the key factor that prevented him from gaining much traction with the GOP. It’s one thing to understand the other side’s motivations, but quite another to support their interests against America’s. But that’s what Buchanan’s been doing for decades now.
Do you find being an idiot painful?
Actually, Buchanan makes some pretty good points, and he is historically correct, as well. The US has some explaining to do. Had we not intervened in WWI we’d not extended the war. It WAS coming to a close when we intervened. Then the austere sanctions on Germany drove Germans to worship Hitler because he WAS a hard-driving, take no prisoners type of guy that they fully believed would bring the glory days back.
As for WWII, we cannot claim any glory. We sent boatloads of Jews to their certain deaths. We did NOTHING to damage the tracks that were carrying Jews by the thousands daily to Auschwitz, and other death camps. We did not intervene on human rights issues at all. We blitzed heavy civilian areas, and I understand why, but still the same, we have blood on our hands. The twentieth century was a wash for America and we are paying for our sins, I really believe. Morally and fiscally we are washed up. We have little to be proud of, even in our churches, which mirror the culture exactly. Not saying that all churches are the same, but an honest look at the very best shows deep decay. What’s more, people DON’T really know or understand history so we repeat it over and again, but the stakes get greater and greater. They could not be higher today, but honestly, how many churches are calling for repentance, for people to fast and pray, to return to God again? So few that we might as well say NONE.
