No apologies here, Pat

Pat Buchanan is, probably, the best known adversary of Israel in the Washington corridors of power. If his bio linked above is to be believed, the man is an odious mixture or saurian conservatism, racism, isolationism and a few other isms*, not the least of them ZOG-ism. He so strongly believes in Elders' control of everything that one wonders at his courage. After all, he rarely opens his big mouth without spewing some anti-Israeli drivel. Unless he is our paid agent**, this valiant approach leaves one wondering about his health.

Lately he publishes anti-Israeli articles non-stop. He seems to become an expert in Middle-Eastern affairs, although after a few reads the articles start to blur into a jumble of self-contradictory and bellicose utterings by somebody who is so used to descend to the general public with the tablets, that he could be hardly bothered to check his own texts for contradictions.

There is a lot of stuff in the four articles linked above (out of many more, no doubt) that shows the unmatched stupidity of the author. From the advice to use ground offensive (thanks, IDF probably knows better when to start it) and a diagnosis of the Vietnam syndrome here (we call it Lebanon syndrome, but thanks anyway) via the usual complaints about the almighty ZOG(true!) to stupid questions that seem self-evident to Pat:

But is it Hezbollah that is using U.S.-built F-16s, with precision-guided bombs and 155-mm artillery pieces to wreak death and devastation on Lebanon?

No, Pat - Hezbolla is using Syria and Iran produced rockets - some of 220 mm caliber and a lot of larger ones are in waiting. So?

But there is one passage that takes the proverbial cake:

Within 48 hours, it was apparent Israel was exploiting Hezbollah's attack to execute a preconceived military plan to destroy Lebanon -- i.e, the collective punishment of a people and nation for the crimes of a renegade militia they could not control.

Aha! We are caught with our pants down. The only country in the whole blue world that has a military plan dealing with potential hostilities against a neighbour that is in a state of war with this country! Wow! Good job, Pat, the CIA could use a talent like this.

And that burp re "renegade militia" - somebody please call Pat and tell him that Hezbollah is represented in the parliament and even in the government of Lebanon.

Regarding the inability of Lebanese government to control Hezbollah: my glands responsible for generation of spit are out of my control right now, so that wet 20mm caliber globule flying in Pat's direction is not followed by an apology. And all the following ones too...

But the passage in question does not stop there:

It was the moral equivalent of a municipal police going berserk, shooting, killing and ravaging an African-American community, because Black Panthers had ambushed and killed cops.

Of all the earthly images our valiant fighter against "disproportional response" has chosen the one involving African-American community, so close to his (dark, no question about it) heart! Would the wonders ever cease? Since when has Pat Buchanan become a champion of the African-American community problems? But to answer this mind-boggling parallel: if the above mentioned community will decide to become a collective warehouse of 12,000 rockets for the Black Panthers use, I think that even the ardent protector of this community like Pat B. may reconsider his stance...

Our Israeli friends appear to be playing us for fools.

The royal "we" in use by a citizen of American republic? There is one fool on my horizon at the moment to play with. Guess who it is, Pat.

(*) No, we would not blame Pat in anti-Semitism. SimplyJews rarely use this accusation, save in some clear-cut cases. Besides, if you look (again) at Pat's bio, he accused Hitler of anti-Semitism. Does one need other proof that Pat is absolutely not anti-Semitic?
(**) No, he isn't - failed the entrance IQ test.
