David Broder and War with Iran

David Broder’s macabre suggestion that President Obama would win the 2012 elections if he went to war with Iran has caused quite a reaction from Patrick Buchanan. Broder suggests that the economy would improve if Obama was at war with Iran. Buchanan responds logically:

…how exactly are “preparations for war” on Iran going to improve our economy when two actual wars costing $1 trillion have left us in the deepest recession since the 1930s?

Were those wars just not big enough?

If war is good for the economy, why is this nation, at war for a decade, growing at 2 percent, while China, which invests in rogue regimes rather than bomb them, is booming?

    As if this isn’t bad enough, now Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina,(a state that ought to know better)is reported to be saying that the U.S. should destroy Iran’s navy, air force, and the Republican Gaurds. Gentlemen, this kind of agression ought to be vigorously resisted. If war could stimulate the economy, then why are we in a recession with two wars already ongoing? We have no business in occupying Iraq or Afghanistan, neither do we have any business in molesting Iran.

  2. Uri Brito says:

    Precisely. War with Iran is the dream for most neo-cons….they realize that they need to fully persuade both parties that war=economic recovery…they are not too far from accomplishing their goal

  3. W.O.Wilson jr says:

    Probably the saddest thing about this is that the neo-cons enjoy the nearly unqualified support of the church.
