I do not see the world in black and white..I far too old to do that...I have struggled over many things concerning this war before it began..I thought,I read and I remembered...and finally backed it..unlike some, my backing isn't based on polls, neo con opinion (depending on whose calling who a neocon), it is based on Iraq's past and it's future, and on our future. The road is long.
Pat is right about one thing . . . ugly women do look better in burkhas.
If I were a heathen of a foreign land with the knowledge of what America's "freedom" represents today, should the offer of such "freedom" be given, I think I'd just say "No, thank you."
The stupidity of pig-ignorant democrats knows no bounds.
I used to joke about Pat Buchanan having professed Shahada.
He just went out and frickin' did it!
I guess his name's now Patrick Mohammed al-Buchanan...
Schizophrenic or more precisely neurotic. There is a great story The Picture of Dorian Gray, a must read for some :)
Hey, nobody likes prophets.
The 'NEA' and the 'ACLU'.....
and 'BP' British National/Socialist/GOVERNMENT-SUBSIDIZED oil/gas/refinery $$$$ at U.S. citizen gas pumps?
(What's success?....what's failure?.....whose tax base?)
Anyone who professes to be a Christian that says we should stand with Islam is beyond human help. Islam preaches your death as a Christian, yet you say stand with Islam as a Christian.
Lord, please have mercy.
I'm imagining a great photo parody... Pat in a kaffiyeh!
As I see it, Pat is pointing out moral conservatives are more aligned in their thinking with the moderate wing of islamites than the liberal, anything goes Democrat or Rino underminers of American principles.
It is extremely difficult to claim a place on the moral high road when you repeatedly find yourself limited to the service lane.
Buchanan is hitting on the right themes but fails to emphasize that we are still the world's best nation from a morality standpoint and therefore we have the "high ground" when going after the evil terrorists.
When Bush keeps referring to freedom, I too wonder sometimes about "freedom to do what....kill more babies in the womb?". Doesn't freedom really mean the ability or the environment to exercise a good moral choice?
Immorality is a national security risk.
Freedom from torture, tyranny, murder, rape organized by the government, freedom to elect their government, freedom to not be grabbed off the street for their political beliefs, freedom for women to go to work, drive, vote and take part in government.
We used to have laws against abortion,had a group in Hollywood to oversee content...now we don't. They can vote for their own laws as they will be free to do so. It won't be like our country...never fear...
We have allowed "freedom of speech" to go hog wild while limiting religion...Our freedoms have gone to freedom "from" religion and anything goes..
By the way...people stand in line or sneak across the border...wait years to enter the land you no longer like.
Buchanan is right on this --- we're not the same people who defeated Nazism in Europe --- we weren't so politically correct that we made it too complicated. We keep wanting to invite the new Nazis to the White House so they will pray for the conversion of the USA to Islam while we try to figure out which ones are evil to fight.
Iraq is going to show us that nation building isn't very easy because we don't really have what it takes to build nations.
Most powerful and the richest, yes. Most moral, how do you know, did you run some statistics? (unless you think that the power/wealth are same as virtue).
Anyway the key point is what Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote:
"If only there were evil people somewhere, insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?"
I will take Solzhenitsyn anytime before Frum and Perle.
Liberal feminists and democrats are one good example of why we're too messed up as a culture. Yet half the population votes their way.
Pat Buchanan's Friends At Work
Funny. Buchanan frequently compared Clinton to Elmer Gantry.
