Bush's last stand

Commenting on the speech on MSNBC, where he is a regular these days, Pat [Buchanan] went so far as to say that, on this basis, if he were a sitting Senator, he would vote 'aye' on the surge. Pat is motivated by a desire to avert a real disaster for American interests in the region, and sees this as 'Bush's last chance' to undo what he has wrought. But there are no do-overs when it comes to war. Bad policies have bad consequences. As ye reap, so shall ye sow. It's a principle ordained by heaven, and fully applicable to everyone on earth -- Americans included. The war both Pat and I opposed is having exactly the effect we envisioned. The idea that a 'surge' of some 20,000 troops will do anything but further irritate and inflame this open wound is a fantasy, and hardly a patriotic one. For it delays the necessity of looking reality square in the face, and -- worse -- prevents the public and the policymaking elites from absorbing the vital lessons of this radical misadventure: that interventionism leads to exactly the opposite of its stated intentions, and the business of Empire is a losing proposition...
