Pat Buchanan Echoes LPAC: To Destroy ISIS, Shut Down Saudis
June 22, 2014 • 11:46AM

In his June 20 syndicated column, "Bombs Can't Save Iraq," syndicated columnist and former Presidential advisor Pat Buchanan wrote:

"Upon one thing Americans do agree: ISIS and al-Qaeda are our enemies. But is bombing ISIS and killing Sunnis the way to destroy ISIS? Or does bombing martyrize and heroize ISIS for the Sunni young? And if destroying ISIS is a strategic imperative, why have we not demanded that the Gulf states and Saudi Arabia cease funneling arms and aid to ISIS in Syria? Why have we not told the Turks to stop permitting jihadists to cross their border into Syria? Why are we aiding and arming the Free Syrian Army to bring down Bashar Assad, when Assad's army is the only fighting force standing between ISIS and the conquest of Syria?"

As LaRouchePAC has written, among the actions that must be taken is to declassify the 28-page chapter of the Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 which reportedly deals with Saudi funding and sponsorship of 9/11. If the charges are proven to be true, Saudi Arabia and Qatar should be declared state sponsors of terrorism. Sanctions should be brought against both states for giving material support to terrorists. This would be the most effective flanking operation to deal with ISIS, without involving the U.S. in a third Iraqi war.
