Among those objecting most loudly to an American withdrawal from the forever wars of the Middle East are those who were the most enthusiastic about plunging us in. The backstage struggle between the Bush interventionists and the America-firsters who first backed Donald Trump for president just exploded into open warfare, which could sunder the Republican…

This narrative makes no sense:

  1. Trump did not choose to withdraw: America is being forced to withdraw by Turkey, which has the biggest army in NATO barring only the USA.
  2. ISIS was not eliminated by the USA, but by the Syrian Army, Iraqi PMU units, and Russian air power. The conflict in Kurdistan was but a minor theatre.
  3. The alliance with the Kurds was always destined to end tragically for the Kurds (who have been recidivists at this game of being screwed by their alliances for centuries).

There is only one real question:

Should the US engage in a war against NATO ally Turkey? And while they're at it, engage Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Russia?

A more fundamental question arises: If the United States was not attacked, why is it our duty to respond militarily to an attack on Saudi Arabia? President Donald Trump does not want war with Iran. America does not want war with Iran. Even the Senate Republicans are advising against military action in response to that…

Buchanan simply accepts MSM propaganda about who did what. No public verifiable evidence has been presented about any of the tanker attacks nor of the last drone attack in terms of who did it. For all we know, it is a long string of false flags. The hits on Saudi were very precise, apparently they have no defense or eyes, nobody knows how they travelled or where launched, for all we know they were the work of spooks or spook aligned subversives.

As for the drones, act of war BS, etc. If the Yemeni, simple retaliation. The US just killed >30 farmers with a drone in a country where they are not at war (Afghanistan) and has killed thousands of innocent bystanders in about 37 countries in a murder by drone scheme that completely contravenes international law. There's a lot more reason to cry and holler about American drones than any other drones.
