Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – We have made the predictions of Osama bin Laden come true. We’re about, it seems to me, to make another one come true, that the United States will in fact aid and abet the cause of radical Islam across that cauldron, that simmering cauldron we call the Middle East.

Mike: Patrick J. Buchanan asks this question: “Who made Barack Obama the Wyatt Earp of the Global Village?”
Neither the Security Council nor Congress nor NATO nor the Arab League has authorized war on Syria. Moreover, where is the evidence that WMDs were used and that it had to be Assad that ordered them? Such an attack makes no sense.
Firing a few shells of gas at Syrian civilians was not going to advance Assad’s cause but, rather, was certain to bring universal condemnation on his regime and deal cards to the War Party which wants a U.S. war on Syria as the back door to war on Iran.
Why did the United States so swiftly dismiss Assad’s offer to have U.N. inspectors – already in Damascus investigating old charges he or the rebels used poison gas – go to the site of the latest incident?
Do we not want to know the truth?
Are we fearful the facts may turn out, as did the facts on the ground in Iraq, to contradict our latest claims about WMDs? Are we afraid that it was rebel elements or rogue Syrian soldiers who fired the gas shells to stampede us into fighting this war?
With U.S. ships moving toward Syria’s coast and the McCainiacs assuring us we can smash Syria from offshore without serious injury to ourselves, why has Congress not come back to debate war?
[Mike: This is the most salient part of Buchanan’s argument.] Lest we forget, Ronald Reagan was sold the same bill of goods the War Party is selling today – that we can intervene decisively in a Mideast civil war at little or no cost to ourselves.
