Islamic wars have brought questionable benefit to the US over the last 20 years, former US presidential advisor Pat Buchanan, author of Suicide of a Superpower, shared with RT.
A new war in the Middle East will be a disaster for the US and for the world economy, he says.
“I opposed the Desert Storm operation in 1991 cleaning Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait because, I said, ‘This would only be the first Arab-American war.’”
Looking at the number of conflicts in the Islam world that America is taking part in now, one cannot but admit that Buchanan was right 20 years ago.
“You cannot replicate the Middle West in the Middle East,” Pat Buchanan concluded.
From the time of the Cold War the US has military bases all over the world.
