Posted at RealClearWorld, Pat Buchanan asks the question, shares his incredulity, and notes in the process Gideon Rachman's (Financial Times) observation that if the US is concerned about hostile Muslim countries with A-bombs, it ought to be looking more closely at Pakistan.
Is the US truly so scared of the Ayatollah Khamenei and Mr. Ahmadinejad, asks PB?
That PB can't bring himself to point the finger where it deserves pointing leaves me baffled. It ought to be obvious to anyone with a brain in his head that Iran, even with nukes, is no threat to the US. Nor is it a threat to Israel, whose military dwarfs Iran's and which possesses a mighty nuclear arsenal.
But if Netanyahu says Iran is a threat to Israel, America's Congress and Christers will insist that America go to war to defend poor outmanned and outgunned Israel.
And our calculating smooth-operator shiny-brite president kowtows.
