This has been posted before on this website but its so good that it needs to be brought back to forefront periodically. The caveat is that you have to watch the whole thing because the ending is just too good to miss. Larry McDonald was definitely ahead of his time. I suggest researching more about him, there’s some very interesting details.
Alright, this was hard for me to watch all the way through. I’m already tired of all the false promises, half truths, and complete lies spewed during the DNC and I’ve only watched about 5 minutes of the PBS coverage. The high-point in this video is where Pat Buchanan notes that the Ron Paul gathering in Minnesota is the only convention where one is likely to hear any accurate, relevant, critical commentary on the current administration. It doesn’t seem to be coming from the Democrats. (With the exception of Kucinich of course.)
Here is a clip of Pat Buchanan discussing his new book Churchill, Hitler, and “The Unnecessary War”: How Britain Lost Its Empire and the West Lost the World on NBC with Lester Holt of the Today Show.
Of all the wars in the last 100+ years WWII is possibly the most justifiable from the perspective of U.S. involvement, but it should have been avoided in the first place and Buchanan has some excellent points along these lines, his book should be interesting. One thing there is no doubt about are the tragic and wasteful wars that the U.S. is involved in today. To quote Ron Paul: “All empires end” (and to paraphrase him further) …usually with massive debt and a broken down military. Sound familiar?
