Bring Our Marines Home by Patrick J. Buchanan

Bring Our Marines Home by Patrick J. Buchanan--A fantastic article by my favorite paleocon.

He concludes:

With the exception of the Soviet Union, few nations in history have suffered such a relative decline in power and influence as the United States in the last decade. We are tied down in two wars, are universally disliked and are running back-to-back deficits of 10 percent of gross domestic product, as our debt is surging to 100 percent of GDP.

A strategic retreat from Eurasia to our own continent and country is inevitable. Let it begin by graciously acceding to Japan's request we remove our Marines from Okinawa and politely inquiring if they wish us to withdraw U.S. forces from the Home Islands, as well.

  1. Bringing our troops home from places where they are not wanted. What a novel concept. It almost seems . . . sensible.

    Excellent blog, Daryl. I look forward to reading it again. It seems you and I have a lot in common, like the same favorite paleoconservative.
