7/23/19 Pat Buchanan on America’s Endless Wars

shb livestream black

Scott interviews Pat Buchanan about his life in politics and the lessons we can apply to today. Buchanan was a committed cold warrior during the 1980s, but then advocated withdrawal of the U.S. from Europe after the Soviet Union collapsed, and urged that NATO not expand up to Russia’s border. Much of his advice has been ignored, and the consequences have been America’s catastrophic and endless wars. Today, he is optimistic that we will not have a war with Iran, since he believes that President Trump knows what a bad idea that is, and because Iran does not want, and has never wanted, nuclear weapons. This takes the main excuse for war off the table.

Discussed on the show:

He is the author of Churchill, Hitler, and “The Unnecessary War”: How Britain Lost Its Empire and the West Lost the World and A Republic, Not an Empire: Reclaiming America’s Destiny.
