Pat Buchanan: Whose War? - The Likudniks are really in charge now

Whose War?: "In a Feb. 9 front-page article in the Washington Post, Robert Kaiser quotes a senior U.S. official as saying, ?The Likudniks are really in charge now.? Kaiser names Perle, Wolfowitz, and Feith as members of a pro-Israel network inside the administration and adds David Wurmser of the Defense Department and Elliott Abrams of the National Security Council. (Abrams is the son-in-law of Norman Podhoretz, editor emeritus of Commentary, whose magazine has for decades branded critics of Israel as anti-Semites.)
Noting that Sharon repeatedly claims a "special closeness" to the Bushites, Kaiser writes, ?For the first time a U.S. administration and a Likud government are pursuing nearly identical policies.? And a valid question is: how did this come to be, and while it is surely in Sharon?s interest, is it in America?s interest?
This is a time for truth. For America is about to make a momentous decision: whether to launch a series of wars in the Middle East that could ignite the Clash of Civilizations against which Harvard professor Samuel Huntington has warned, a war we believe would be a tragedy and a disaster for this Republic. To avert this war, to answer the neocon smears, we ask that our readers review their agenda as stated in their words. Sunlig
