Speaking of Iraq
Posted by G.A. Matiasz on June 29, 2007
This war was not thought through. It was not only mismanaged, it was an historic strategic blunder to begin with.
— Patrick J. Buchanan, “The Retreat of the GOP Old Bulls,” 6/26/07
I’m an avid reader of political propaganda, left, right, and wingnut. You’re as likely to find me perusing David Horowitz’s FrontPageMagazine as scanning AlterNet. I usually find the neocon stuff insufferably arrogant and not a little rabid. In contrast, I’m often impressed with the integrity, though not the arguments, of old-school conservatives. Despite the man’s pro-life, homophobic, anti-immigrant, love-it-or-leave-it nationalism, Pat Buchanan has nailed the Iraq war with a realism that is commendable.
