Couldn't Have Said It Better Ourselves

And from Pat Buchanan no less. Go figure.
A conservative knows not whether to laugh or weep, for Mr. Bush has just asserted a right to interfere in the internal affairs of every nation on earth. Why? Because the “survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands.” But this is utterly ahistorical. The world has always been afflicted with despots. Yet America has always been free. And we have remained free by following the counsel of Washington, Jefferson, and Adams and staying out of foreign quarrels and foreign wars.

Who is feeding the president this interventionist nonsense?

The president now plans to hector and badger foreign leaders on the progress each is making toward attaining U.S. standards of democracy. “We will persistently clarify the choice before every ruler and nation—the moral choice between oppression, which is always wrong, and freedom, which is eternally right.” This is a formula for “Bring-it-on!” collisions with every autocratic regime on earth, including virtually every African and Arab ruler, all the “outposts of tyranny” named by Secretary Rice, most of the nations of Central Asia, China, and Russia. This is a prescription for endless war. Yet as Madison warned, “No nation can preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”

The 9/11 killers were over here because we are over there. We were not attacked because of who we are but because of what we do. It is not our principles they hate. It is our policies. U.S. intervention in the Middle East was the cause of the 9/11 terror. Bush believes it is the cure. Has he learned nothing from Iraq?

In 2003, we invaded a nation that had not attacked us, did not threaten us, and did not want war with us to disarm it of weapons it did not have. Now, after plunging $200 billion and the lives of 1,400 of our best and bravest into this war and killing tens of thousands of Iraqis, we have reaped a harvest of hatred in the Arab world and, according to officials in our own government, have created a new nesting place and training ground for terrorists to replace the one we lately eradicated in Afghanistan.

America “goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy,” said John Quincy Adams, “She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own.” Under the tutelage of Jacobins who call themselves idealists, Bush has repudiated this wise core doctrine of U.S. foreign policy to embrace Wilsonian interventionism in the internal affairs of every autocratic regime on earth. We are going to democratize the world and abolish tyranny.

Giddy with excitement, the neocons are falling all over one another to hail the president. They are not conservatives at all. They are anti-conservatives, and their crusade for democracy will end as did Wilson’s, in disillusionment for the president and tragedy for this country.

Wow. Holy shit. Where did you get this? This is the only time I've ever seen anyone of any substantial mainstream repute whatsoever put it in those uncertain terms and be so thorough about it.(Actually, Harry Browne has done so, and more, several times. But a sadly small number of Americans even know who this genius is. Go to harrybrowne.org and read some of his articles...) Wow. Pat Buchanon? Seriously? I'm copying this and pasting it anywhere I can find a blank space for it. Then I'm going to print copies of it down to the last sheet of paper and drop of ink available to me and I'm going to post, plaster, staple, tape, hoist, and otherwise slap it up anywhere I can find a spot 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. Great find. Oh, and to Pat Buchanon: sorry I called you a Nazi Fat-Assed, Cross-Burnin' Hillbilly. You may still be just that, but you know what's important and will voice such knowledge at times when it is badly needed. It's the sort of thing this country needs right now, so for this I say, "Thank you. Sincerely and respectfully: Thank You."
