We can at least be thankful that Bolton, Gingrich and Guliani are meeting with the MEK as well compensated private citizens and not as government officials.

Hopefully there is enough common sense left in Washington to avoid provoking a needless and disastrous war with Iran.

I like Buchanan, and it’s important that someone is sounding the alarm about the neocon desire to start even more wars.

But Buchanan is also the author of “Churchill, Hitler, and The Unnecessary War”. In that book Buchanan argues that France and Britain should not have declared war with Germany over Hitler’s invasion of Poland.

France and Britain should have let Hitler run free in Eastern Europe, Buchanan says. Keep Western Europe neutral and safe. Let Hitler destroy the East if he so wishes. No chance that Hitler later on would have turned west.

Hitler was not another Kaiser Wilhelm! Hitler, like Napoleon, wanted everything. Everything. Buchanan’s analysis of Hitler’s goals is so wrong it almost boggles the mind. And calls into question everything hebelieves.

Iran 's Mullas have had decades to indoctrinate the countries youth.

Regime change today would have incredible opposition.

But in 2007, all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies declared with high confidence Iran had no nuclear weapons program. They stated this again in 2011. Under the nuclear deal, Iran exported almost all of its uranium, stopped enriching to 20 percent, shut down thousands of centrifuges, poured concrete into the core of its heavy water reactor, and allows U.N. inspectors to crawl all over every facility.

Pat makes some good points in this article and I certainly do not advocate for a hot war with Iran but this statement is pure bovine excrement.
