What the Ideology of Pat Buchanan Means

In a recent article entitled “What War with Iran Means” Pat Buchanan continued his Leftist-like agenda of siding with the enemies of America and America’s allies. Buchanan wrote:

“Before the War Party stampedes us into yet another war, the Senate should find out if Teheran is really on the “verge” of getting a bomb, and why deterrence, which never failed us, cannot succeed with Iran.”

Implicit in Buchanan’s ostensibly reasonable request that the Senate be sure Iran is a threat before waging war, is the idea that there is a secret “War Party” that haphazardly declares war on innocent countries. This is the same rhetoric spread by the radical Left. Since Vietnam, the Leftists have argued that all U.S. war is the product of capitalist greed or desire for U.S. hegemony. But how can someone make this kind of accusation against Buchanan from just one article?

Buchanan’s bias becomes apparent once one sees what is not in the article. Buchanan accuses a secretive “War Party” of planning an attack. He also proposes that Iran is not a threat, does not have any nuclear ambitions, and would never attack. But he does not refer to any quotes from the Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The Iranian president recently stated that Iran is now a nuclear power and unveiled additional centrifuges. This, combined with his statements calling for the destruction and death of Israel, clearly shows that Iran is a nuclear threat and intends to attack Israel.

Buchanan’s silence concerning Iran’s declared intentions is deafening. How can one explain an intelligent and effective writer ignoring such glaring primary sources as those provided by Ahmadinejad. One can only conclude that Buchanan is not too bothered by the nuclear annihilation of Israel. What else is can one assume from an author who described World War II as “The Unnecessary War.”
