As always, Pat Buchanan never minces words when it comes to how he see things through his viewfinder in life…and he did so again this week-end about our presence on the DMZ, North Korea, South Korea, China and the recent nuclear tests by North Korea. He blames the Unites States for the recent events that have taken place in the past and the present. – See if you see things his way or not.

This is via DC:

On this weekend’s broadcast of “The McLaughlin Group,” conservative commentator Pat Buchanan blamed the United States for the aggression of North Korea, whose recent surprise nuclear test brought widespread condemnation from the international community.

Buchanan, author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?,” specifically suggested the U.S. should stop protecting South Korea with a sizable standing military force.

“Why should the United States — 60 years after the end of the Korean War — have 28,000 guys on the DMZ, when South Korea has an economy 40 times the size of the North, and they got twice the population? The point is, if the United States weren’t on the DMZ, this guy wouldn’t be building intercontinental missiles and nuclear warheads to attack us.”

Buchanan said other major powers will soon step in to counter North Korea, but argued that the dictatorship is focused squarely on provoking the U.S.

“China is supposed to basically … rein in North Korea,” Buchanan said. “And they’re failing to do the job. That’s why I think the Japanese, who are in a conflict with the Chinese over the Senkaku [Islands], and the Koreans … are going to look themselves at [acquiring] nuclear weapons, and that’s going to be China’s problem. … Why would they build an intercontinental ballistic missile that can go 6,000 miles, when Seoul, South Korea is 25 miles from the border? This is aimed at us.”

Do you think Pat’s right, wrong or somewhere in-between? – Fire Away…Inquiring Minds Want to Know!

  1. Sometimes I find Pat in the weeds, but he is spot on in his diatribe. We do need to get out of SKorea, they will do well alone if we furnish them with modern armaments. Pat seems to always have his finger on the pulse of a situation.
    A remarkable American Patriot.

  2. 99.9999% of the time I agree with Pat. This instance is no exception.

  3. I say Pat’s right on this one also, N Korea is the snotty little brother of China and is using them to poke the U.S.

  4. Is anyone worried about what North Korea may be able to do soon to the US…if they wanted? Especially with Dear Leader at the helm…along with Iran etc etc?

    • No, BT. NK is a paper tiger with a starving “army” and a disney-inspired weapons program. They have nothing. We should ignore them and let them starve in the dark. It’s crazy to talk to them or to pay for protection from their nonexistent weapons. I just wish that the SKers had the guts to whack them each time they do something like sink a submarine or shell a fishing village.

    • Spur…

      I may or may not understand where you’re coming from on this subject and your thoughts …but, one thing Pat Buchanan isn’t is a liberal or democrat…far from it.

      Btw…that by no way means I think you should agree or not about his views on this major issue if ya know what I mean. ~

      • Being in all these foreign hellholes doesn’t sound conservative to me. Staying out used to be the Republican position. We are now in some 160 countries, and who knows why. In fact, it was liberal Democrats who sent us into no-win wars Korea and Vietnam. Four wars in the twentieth century and all four started under five liberal Democrats : Wilson, Roosevelt, F.D., Truman, Kennedy and Johnson. The last declared war was December 1941.

        • How did people get the idea that the best way to ensure limited government was to become an imperial power fighting endless wars? Wars serve the state. I am supporting Rand Paul for 2016. It’s too bad that Fox News is controlled by the war-mongers.

  6. Libertarian who hates democracy says:

    Mr Spurwing, how many liberal democrats in power want the military out of foreign countries?

    Pat is amazingly correct & if more pols thought this way the Fed Gov might not have put us in danger & in debt for generations to come.

  7. The Koreans are our friends, just as the Israelis are our friends. I gotta disagree with Pat here. Commies are much like muslims, they are our idealogical enemies. It doesn’t really matter to them where we are based.

  8. I disagree with Mr. Buchanan. The ‘last’ time all U.S. troops were transferred out of South Korea, the North Koreans invaded South Korea.

    Please remember that South Korea sent two infantry divisions and one marine (regiment?) to South Vietnam during U.S. portion of the Vietnam War.

    South Korea is a good ally. Quiet. Not ‘shrill’. Not ‘demanding’

    Get U.S. troops out of Europe now!

    • Agree with you, not only did NK invade SK, but in last quarter of ’50, Communist China jumped in on NK’s side. Regardless of SK’s perceived superiority over NK, what’s to stop China from repeating its 1950 action? And, SK has been/is a good ally as you stated, especially in RVN, they took no prisoners.

      Also, let the Euroweenies take care of themselves and botch it up again, this world needs another cleansing, particularly here at home.

    • master of sinanju says:

      I agree, S.K. is a good ally EXCEPT their idiotic younger generation, like ours doesn’t heed history, and the horror stories of their older generations who KNOW how bad it can be in a commie dictatorship.Case in point; that vile punk ignoranus (yes I know not proper spelling but he is ) gangum style crapper lowlife. Has the gall to belittle our troops protecting his pansy ass, but according to the laws in HIS country he skates on mandatory conscription because mommy and daddy are connected?My best friend from high school(Air Force) went to S.K. a year or two ago, older people, grannys grampas people our age, SOME younger people, not a lot, were friendly and happy the round eyes were there, and told him so.

    • The Korean war was a war between the US and the communists over control of East Asia. Despite Vietnam, we won that war. Asia is now a capitalist paradise. NK is Gilligan’s Island.

  9. I say hes right on target here. Why we babysit S. Korea after all these years is beyond me. If they cannot take care of themselves by now they never will. Bring home our troops from there and station them on our borders!

    • With all due respect, defending a nation against communism is not ‘babysitting’. The communists are not babies, nor do the communists ‘sit’.

      I offer, as a alternative to Korea, bring U.S. troops home from Europe, Iraq, Afgan, San Francisco, and, while we are at it, Japan.

      Now take ‘these’ troops and place ’em on the U.S.-Canadian border (I meant U.S.-Mexico border.)

      • I can see your point also RP. But its been 60 years. S Korea is in so much better shape then its pathetic neighbor to the north. I have doubts the commie scum could take the south now even if they tried. They have all to do to even feed their own population in the north because that moron in charge there spends every yen they have on weapons like the old Russia did. Look where it got them? Besides, we dont need troops there to back them up in the south. We can always supply them with plenty of air power offshore from our carriers and make it a living hell for the north to even think about it. They should have plenty of well trained and US equipped ground pounders to defend themselves in the event of a ground attack.

  12. This makes sense to me. Why are we willing to fight for them? The south could wipe out dear leader without our help.

  13. What happens when the United States can’t support S. Korea? Our money problems will soon tear the U.S. a part. Will S. Korea be invaded by N. Korea and China? Yes, and the only thing the U.S. will be able to do is protect itself. Train the S. Koreans, sell them the technology to protect themselves.

  14. RidinShotgun says:

    I like Patrick J, but I’m not sure he’s right on this one. He is my choice for president for the following reasons;
    1) He’d send the 3rd Infantry Division to NYC and physically throw the UN out of this country, Doomturd included!

    2) Our troops would be called home from Europe and he has said that our approach to Russia after the end of the cold war was, “Fighting the last war.” he would have handled them differently.

    3) All of these minorities screaming at the top of their lungs about how we – the majority I.E. REAL AMERICANS need to bend over backwards for them, would be told in no uncertain terms to go commit a biologically impossible act.

    4) ICE would get some real incentives to round up all the illegals (Say for every one that’s rounded up, you’ll get an extra $50.00 a head per paycheck.)

  15. I would like to hear Lindsey Graham or John McCain explaining to George Washington why his country now needs to station troops in over 100 countries. George would say, “I thought we were supposed to be against that sort of thing.”
