Neocons, neolibs, and NATO inch us closer to war with Russia
American Greatness: "Why wage a war to advance interests not our own? ask paleoconservative patriots like Pat Buchanan and Tucker Carlson. The question, alas, is a non sequitur, as it is incorrectly premised on the false notion that the United States government and Department of State conduct foreign policy in the interest of the American people.
