“It is time for this war in Afghanistan to end,” said Gen. John Nicholson in Kabul on his retirement Sunday after a fourth tour of duty and 31 months as commander of U.S. and NATO forces.

Labor Day brought news that another U.S. serviceman had been killed in an insider attack by an Afghan soldier.

Why do we continue to fight in Afghanistan?

“We continue to fight simply because we are there,” said retired Gen. Karl Eikenberry who preceded Gen. Nicholson.

“Absent political guidance and a diplomatic strategy,” Eikenberry told The New York Times, “military commanders have filled the vacuum by waging a war all agree cannot be won militarily.”

This longest war in U.S. history has become another no-win war.

Yet, if the 14,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan were pulled out, the regime would fall, the Taliban would take over, and the massacres would begin.

So America stays in and soldiers on. For how long?

The 17th anniversary of 9/11, now imminent, appears a proper time to take inventory of our successes and failures in the forever wars of the Middle East into which America was plunged in this new century.

In Afghanistan, the Taliban presence is more pervasive in more provinces than at any time since the regime was overthrown in 2001.

In the seven-year Syrian civil war we helped to ignite by arming rebels to overthrow President Assad, the conflict appears headed for its largest, bloodiest and most decisive battle.

The Syrian army, backed by Russia and Iran, is preparing to attack Idlib province. Three million people live there and 70,000 rebels are encamped, including 10,000 al-Qaida fighters.

In a Monday tweet, President Donald Trump warned Syria against attacking Idlib, and warned Iran and Russia against joining any such attack: “The Russians and Iranians would be making a grave humanitarian mistake to take part in this potential human tragedy. Hundreds of thousands of people could be killed.” America and Russia both have warships in the Eastern Med.

National Security Adviser John Bolton has warned that Syria’s use of gas in Idlib would trigger a U.S. military response. This is an invitation for the rebels in Idlib to conduct a false-flag gas attack to lure U.S. air power to their side.

Monday in Damascus, the Iranian foreign minister said the time had come to eradicate the terrorist enclave in Idlib. If the Syrians, Russians and Iranians are not bluffing, and the U.S. warnings are serious, we may be headed for a U.S.-Russia clash inside Syria.

Yet, again, what vital interest of ours is imperiled in Idlib province?

On Monday, Saudi Arabia admitted to having made a mistake when, using a U.S.-made fighter-bomber, a school bus was attacked on Aug. 9, killing dozens of Yemeni children in that humanitarian horror of a war.

The Saudi campaign to crush the Houthi rebels and return the previous regime to power in Sanaa could never succeed were it not for U.S.-provided planes, missiles, bombs and air-to-air refueling.

We are thus morally responsible for what is happening.

In Libya, where we overthrew Moammar Gadhafi, rival factions now control Benghazi in the east and Tripoli in the west. August saw fighting break out in the capital, threatening the U.N.-backed unity government there.

In Iraq, which we invaded in 2003 to strip of weapons of mass destruction it did not have, and to bring the blessings of democracy to Mesopotamia, rival factions are struggling for power after recent elections saw pro-Iranian and anti-American forces gain ground.

ORDER IT NOW

Meanwhile, the Iranian currency is sinking as a November deadline approaches for Europe to choose between cutting ties to Iran or losing U.S. markets. While the Tehran regime has threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz if its oil is denied access to world markets, it faces economic strangulation if it does not submit to U.S. demands.

When one adds up the U.S. dead and wounded from the wars we have launched since 2001 with the Arab and Muslim wounded, killed, orphaned, widowed, uprooted and turned into refugees, as well as the trillions of dollars lost, what benefits are there on the other side of the ledger?

Now we appear to be moving to confront Russia in Ukraine.

In an interview with The Guardian last week, U.S. special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker said Washington is ready to build up Ukraine’s naval and air defense forces, given Russia’s continued support for separatists in the Donbass. The administration is “absolutely” prepared to supply new lethal weaponry, beyond the Javelin anti-tank missiles delivered in April.

But if a Ukrainian army moves against pro-Russian rebels in Luhansk and Donetsk, and Russia intervenes on the side of the rebels, are we really prepared to come to the aid of the Ukrainian army?

President Trump has yet to withdraw us from any of the wars he inherited, but he has kept us out of any new wars — a record worth preserving.

Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of a new book, “Nixon’s White House Wars: The Battles That Made and Broke a President and Divided America Forever.”

    National Security Adviser John Bolton has warned that Syria’s use of gas in Idlib would trigger a U.S. military response.

    Bolton opened his mouth for precisely that reason. That was a clear signal for the Islamist insurgents to stage a false flag attack so Trump can call Assad “an animal” on twitter, princess Ivanka can cry her eyes out and daddy Donald can launch another pointless cruise missile strike at Syria and show what a tough guy he is.

    The imminent offensive against the Idlib procince by the Syrian military and its Iranian auxiliaries is no different than our offensives against the city of Fallujah in Iraq. Our stated aim was to dislodge, kill and capture insurgents and that is also the aim of the Syrian military. Russia, Syria and Iran didn’t tell us we couldn’t attack Fallujah and we have no right to tell Syria that they can’t use military force on insurgents in their own damn country.

    Trump promised to be the bane of Islamic terrorists on the campaign trail but is unwittingly (or wittingly) aiding, abetting and protecting them including the large force of al qaeda fighters which was the stated reason for our forever wars.

    You say “our,” Mr. Buchanan says “we,” and I say — Washington Empire. Americans indoctrinated into identifying with their rulers have allowed this Exceptional Nation nonsense to their everlasting shame. Pronoun Propaganda.

    This other echo of Vietnam also caught my eye:

    “Yet, if the 14,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan were pulled out, the regime would fall, the Taliban would take over, and the massacres would begin.”

    More baloney, appealing to the absurd American vanity that Uncle Sam is there to civilize the savages.

    The imminent attack on Idlib by Assad has a morality superior to our attack on Fallujah: Assad is reclaiming his own country militarily...We were in someone else's.

    There should be a large plaque in the Oval Office that says, “It’s easier to start a war than to end one.”

    Seems like only yesterday Bush was elected as the Education President. Luckily he got a war mandate to do a quick and easy on Osama bin Forgotten but accidentally started three seemingly endless wars (Afghanistan, Iraq and the War on Terror).

    Obama was the antidote, presumably against war but using the wiggle word that he was against dumb wars. He was for smart wars and claimed he would end Bush’s dumb ones. People voted for him in droves, but he accidentally started the wars in Yemen, Libya, Syria and Ukraine, possibly others I forgot or we don’t yet know about.

    Then Trump said he’d end these wars and put the American people first, but he surrounded himself with neocons, refused to end any wars and is poised to commit us to one that might finally be the end of us.

    No matter what “we” vote for, we get more of the same. Who benefits? Certainly not us. Judging by the advisors Trump has surrounded himself with, the money stripped yearly from this country for these wars is all spent to increase Israel’s power. “We” get the bill and a useless vote.

    When one adds up the U.S. dead and wounded from the wars we have launched since 2001 with the Arab and Muslim wounded, killed, orphaned, widowed, uprooted and turned into refugees, as well as the trillions of dollars lost, what benefits are there on the other side of the ledger?

    God damn your anti-Semitism, Patrick J. Buchanan!

    have you ever heard of a little thing called the Bible- sir?!

    Do you know what God tells us in the Bible?

    ‘God blesses those who bless Israel, and curses those who fail to kill and die for the genocidal Jewish supremacists in Israel!’

    ~ Genesis 12:3

    Do you know what that means?

    It means that all the stupid goyim were put here by the Jewish god to serve the Jews, god’s chosen people!

    It means that if you’re a sniveling, worthless Gentile, that your only salvation and redemption comes from abasing yourself to wealthy Jewish supremacists like Sheldon Adelson. And sending your sons and daughters to slaughter untold Muslims and Christians- and everyone else! if that’s what god’s people tell you to do!

    Dying and mass-murdering for Jewish supremacist Zionists – are the only way a goyim can make his otherwise pointless life worthwhile to God.

    Why do you think 60 million people died in WWII?!

    To consummate God’s covenant and genesis the Jewish supremacist state of Israel, that’s why.

    Until 1948, the world languished in darkness for some two thousand years, since the evil Roman goyim dispered god’s people. And then looked what happened to Rome, eh? It fell, because it didn’t abase itself to the Jews!

    Look at Hitler and the Germans! Even today they’re scourged as congenital Nazis and forced to wallow in shame and watch their women get humiliated and murdered – because they raised their hand to the Jewish supremacist$ – that god loves uber alles!

    And now you!

    of all people, who calls himself a man of the Bible, would sit there and write those hateful and anti-Semitic words!

    U.S. dead and wounded from the wars we have launched since 2001 with the Arab and Muslim wounded, killed, orphaned, widowed, uprooted and turned into refugees, as well as the trillions of dollars lost, what benefits are there on the other side of the ledger?

    Do I have to write it in crayon, (or perhaps zyklon blue!) for you to understand that the other side of the ledger, as you call it, is God’s demand for us all! That our worthless, meaningless lives are only made holy when we sacrifice them, and our children’s, so that Israel can steal more territory and especially the Golan Heights! If Syria and Iraq and Libya are functioning, intact nations, do you think that Israel (god’s chosen!) will be able to steal that land?!?!

    No!

    I’m only shocked that I have to explain this to a man of ‘so-called God. Who should have at least once in his life read the damn Bible!

    it says it right there. ‘Abase thyself, thy wife and thy children to (((their))) holy shekels’. ‘Send thy beast-like, worthless spawn to die in eternal wars to expand their wealth and power’. ‘Bless Israel and you will be spared’. Fail to prostrate yourself to their shekels, and god will curse you and your spawn’.

    So please stop asking what “benefits are there on the other side of the ledger”. Because when we murder villagers and destroy nations and send our young off to die, while bankrupting our nation (and damning our eternal souls) to benefit a Satanic nation of anti-Christ swindlers and purveyors of war. iniquity and death, we are doing so to please God Himself!, and it says so right there in the Jewish supremacist Bible!

    That’s what’s on the other side of that ‘ledger’, Mr. Patrick J. Buchanan- for the record.

    if this post is being written specifically to John McStain, and by extension, every moral abomination on two legs that praised that murderous little coward, then all I can say is- well said!

    And if there is a karmic debt that the West - in general- owes to the myriad nations that our zio-elites have destroyed on Israel's behalf, then I hope we find a way to pay it. I for one, would be thrilled to send every person in the cathedral to honor the Stain, with all of their corpulent assets, straight to the streets of Fallujah and Gaza and Tripoli and everywhere else they have rained down terror and death...

    as a down payment on reparations owed.

    Soon to be followed with the right of return for every Arab whose property was stolen through terrorism, murder and heinous racial oppression.

    Zionism has run its course. It failed. It is now a moral stain on every nation and every soul who facilitates this evil and indefensible 'master race' idiocy.

    If the West is going to redeem its eternal soul, there is no way forward except though Jerusalem. The 'shining light unto nations', has become the Judas goat, leading the West straight to damnation and death.

    If the world is ever to be free, we must, absolutely must, find a way to End the (((Fed))) !

Spending trillions on war, implements of war, murdering, while the people languish in poverty and infrastructure is ignored. Carnal beasts with no love or caring. You should yourselves be happy that your run is about over. I know that the entire world is elated to see your end.

    if this post is being written specifically to John McStain, and by extension, every moral abomination on two legs that praised that murderous little coward, then all I can say is- well said!

    And if there is a karmic debt that the West – in general- owes to the myriad nations that our zio-elites have destroyed on Israel’s behalf, then I hope we find a way to pay it. I for one, would be thrilled to send every person in the cathedral to honor the Stain, with all of their corpulent assets, straight to the streets of Fallujah and Gaza and Tripoli and everywhere else they have rained down terror and death…

    as a down payment on reparations owed.

    Soon to be followed with the right of return for every Arab whose property was stolen through terrorism, murder and heinous racial oppression.

    Zionism has run its course. It failed. It is now a moral stain on every nation and every soul who facilitates this evil and indefensible ‘master race’ idiocy.

    If the West is going to redeem its eternal soul, there is no way forward except though Jerusalem. The ‘shining light unto nations’, has become the Judas goat, leading the West straight to damnation and death.

    If the world is ever to be free, we must, absolutely must, find a way to End the (((Fed))) !

    This is an invitation for the rebels in Idlib to conduct a false-flag gas attack to lure U.S. air power to their side.

    This is the first matter of fact acknowledgment of Syria/false flag gas attacks by a member (however marginal) of the MSM.

    Not that any thinking person didn’t already know about the fraudulent White Helmets and the non lethal weapons of mass destruction. But the neocons have a story and are sticking to it. Nevermind lying eyes.

    This is a serious charge. Once there is evidence of a false flag … everything is in question.

    Sherlock Holmes first words to Dr. Watson "You have been in Afghanistan I perceive".

    This after observing Watson's sun tan and a limp caused by a wound from a jezail bullet.

    That was more than a 100 years ago.

    Watson must’ve gotten the Red Eye flight to conserve the tan.

    Lifts the violin, draws in some sweet opium from the hookah…

    “The myths go right back to the start of the war. The uncomfortable truth is that from the very beginning, it was Britain which sought a conflict with Germany, not Germany with Britain. Hitler’s real targets lay elsewhere, in Ukraine and Russia, and he was much less interested in us than we like to think.

    Forget, too, the ‘special relationship’ with the US: America was a jealous and resentful rival to whom we ceded our global status and naval supremacy. And Washington’s grudging backing came at a huge price – we were made to hand over the life savings of the Empire to stave off bankruptcy and surrender.
    Even the threat of a German invasion was never a reality, more a convenient idea which suited the propaganda purposes of Hitler and Churchill. What began as a phoney war led in the end to a phoney victory, in which the real winners were Washington and Moscow, not us – and an unsatisfactory, uncomfortable and unhappy peace.” Peter Hitchens- his father served as Commander in Royal Navy

    Few more things noted by Hitchen could apply to US 1 UK was worried of peaceful negotiation between Polnad and Germany robbing them the chances of a war

    2 British People who welcomed Munich agreement were soon eagerly anticipating a war with Germany

    – the last was achieved by the media .
