Patrick Buchanan and the American Invasion of Iran

“As Congress prepares for its August recess, the probability of U.S.
air strikes on Iran rises with each week. A third carrier, the USS
Enterprise, and its battle group is joining the Nimitz and Stennis in
the largest concentration of U.S. naval power ever off the coast of
Iran. And Tonkin Gulf II may have already occurred.
In Baghdad, on July 1, Gen. Kevin J. Bergner charged that Iranians planned
the January raid in Karbala, using commandos in American-style
uniforms, that resulted in the death of five U.S. soldiers.”

The United States government, military and State Department have a credibility problem. Patrick Buchanan thinks the General is bending the truth.

“As the New York Times reports, this “marks the first time that the
United States has charged that Iranian officials have helped plan
operations against American troops in Iraq and have had advance
knowledge of specific attacks that have led to the death of American
soldiers.”

The Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary
Guards is using Hezbollah to train Shiites to attack our soldiers and
providing them with enhanced IEDs that have killed scores of U.S.
troops, Bergner charged. He says we have captured a veteran Hezbollah
agent and documents pointing to direct Iranian complicity in the
Karbala raid.”

The New York Times, that famous left-leaning liberal “newspaper” is once again supporting the administration in foreign policy initiatives by telling only a portion of the story. While this is not a new development, it is worth noting that the times is more than a liberal paper – if one can honestly call it that. I’ve always found them to be singularly white supremacist and reactionary on all matters of particular import to me. Of course, that would not preclude an identification as liberal. I only mention the Times because Buchanan notes a report in which the paper affirms through omission the latest Pentagon fiction.

Buchanan adds:

Has Bush secretly authorized covert attacks inside Iran? Are U.S.
and Israeli agents in Kurdistan behind the attacks across the border to
provoke Iran? On July 11, Iranian troops clashed with Kurd rebels
inside Iran, and the Iranians fired artillery back into Iraq.

Why is Congress going on vacation? Why are a Democratic-controlled House
and Senate not asking these questions in public hearings? Why is
Congress letting Bush and Vice President Cheney decide whether we
launch a third war in the Middle East?

Buchanan raises some interesting points – and one of those points should make folks on both sides of the aisle question the behavior and values of their Senators in Congress. Someday American liberals will recognize that Democrats are essentially the same devils as Republicans. Someday, they’ll stop sending young, dumb 20-something’s with pig tails and high-pitched voices to recruit for empty vessels like Hillary Clinton.

 

The subterfuge engaged in by the US here is nothing new. It was the same before World War II. The United States did not enter that war for the reasons we’ve been taught. So it is with Vietnam and Iraq. Will it be with Iran? If the deciding vote is to be cast by your Senator, the answer is already in. This is a truly criminal enterprise.

    au contraire mon frere, it is a truly mendacious enterprise. One meticulously architected to fit the narrative parameters of legitimacy…,

    I’m still eagerly waiting to see who will be tapped to serve as that new narrative’s standard bearer.
