Buchanan can make some good points, but not here. From commentarymagazine:
...Are Iranians then murdering Americans, asked Joe Lieberman:
“Is it fair to say that the Iranian-backed special groups in Iraq are responsible for the murder of hundreds of American soldiers and thousands of Iraqi soldiers and civilians?”
“It certainly is. . . . That is correct,” said Petraeus.
The following day, Petraeus told the House Armed Services Committee, “Unchecked, the ’special groups’ pose the greatest long-term threat to the viability of a democratic Iraq.”Translation: The United States is now fighting the proxies of Iran for the future of Iraq.
I don’t know about you, but I think this is a convincing case that Iran has already started a war with the U.S. Next, Buchanan takes some shots at the Iraq War and declares “Iran has nothing to gain by war.” (full article)
