Return of the War Party

From an article today on the Return of the War Party Patrick J. Buchanan says:

"Real men go to Tehran!" brayed the neoconservatives, after the success of their propaganda campaign to have America march on Baghdad and into an unnecessary war that has forfeited all the fruits of our Cold War victory." ... "Now they are back, in pursuit of what has always been their great goal: an American war on Iran."

From A War Fought in Ignorance "The most important reason for the American war on the Taliban is that Washington under the Bush administration, and with the enthusiastic support of certain leaders of the neoconservative gang among think-tank intellectuals, had decided that America had to destroy “Islamo-fascism,” ... "

Here's more evidence the deceit regarding Iraq started back in 1991. "Two days later, when Saddam entered Kuwait, he had no reason to believe that the U.S. would come to Kuwait's defense with a half-million troops. Or that when he tried to negotiate a retreat though Arab leaders, the U.S. would refuse to talk. In 1990 as in 2002, a Bush president had his mind set on war."

On the anthrax attacks "Poisonous anthrax that killed five Americans in the weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks doesn't match bacteria from a flask linked to Bruce Ivins, the researcher who committed suicide after being implicated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a scientist said." The story goes on to say this is not conclusive, but they did ruin his career and make his life so miserable he committed suicide. They supposedly had evidence - but then it turns out that this is the evidence - and all it suggests so far is that he didn't do it.
