    Whose War?

    A neoconservative clique seeks to ensnare our country in a series of wars that are not in America’s interest.

    by Patrick J. Buchanan

    The War Party may have gotten its war. But it has also gotten something it did not bargain for. Its membership lists and associations have been exposed and its motives challenged. In a rare moment in U.S. journalism, Tim Russert put this question directly to Richard Perle: “Can you assure American viewers ... that we’re in this situation against Saddam Hussein and his removal for American security interests? And what would be the link in terms of Israel?”

    Suddenly, the Israeli connection is on the table, and the War Party is not amused. Finding themselves in an unanticipated firefight, our neoconservative friends are doing what comes naturally, seeking student deferments from political combat by claiming the status of a persecuted minority group. People who claim to be writing the foreign policy of the world superpower, one would think, would be a little more manly in the schoolyard of politics. Not so.

    Watch yourself...while I agree that America's entanglement with the Middle East is problematic(putting it mildly), let's not slip into anti-Semitic conspiracy theories here. The lousy neocon conspiracies are true and frightening enough.

    I didn't write the article. My opinion has always been that space aliens are responsible for all of our problems.
