I don’t really like Pat Buchanan, and I don’t often agree with him, but I think he’s nailed it in a new post on CNSNews. He looked at the reasons that Arabs in the Mideast are at war with us.
It won’t be a popular post, and it will probably be categorized as “un-American,” but after a brief run-down on the Mideast, he concludes this way:
But as long as we take sides in their wars, those we fight and kill over there will come to kill us over here.
This is payback for our intervention. This is the price of empire. This is the cost of the long war.
Hard to argue with that.
