Imperial Capital, but America-First Nation

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Love of the Kurds, so audible on the Hill, does not go that far. If there is no stomach in Middle America for war with Iran and a manifest desire to pull the troops out and come home, there is ferocious establishment resistance to any withdrawal of U.S. forces. This has bedeviled Trump through the three years of his presidency. Again, it seems a stalemate is in the cards — until there is some new explosion in the Mideast, after which the final withdrawal for America will begin, as it did for the exhausted British and French empires after World War II. That we are leaving the Middle East seems certain. Only the departure date is as yet undetermined.
