Hands off Iran! (The Coalition Grows . . .)

Pat Buchanan has an op-ed out entitled “Who’s Planning Our Next War?” This being Buchanan, the title is meant as a rhetorical question, one for which a couple of years ago Mel Gibson provided a satisfactory answer.

Anyway, a few days ago I wrote about the attempt by the Hands Off Iran! coalition to mischaracterize a non-binding House resolution which calls for the cessation of gasoline sales to Iran as requiring a military blockade of Iran. Buchanan joins those promoting this lie in his column:

Moving through Congress, powered by the Israeli lobby, is House Resolution 362, which demands that President Bush impose a U.S. blockade of Iran, an act of war.

Apropos of Buchanan, do not miss Christopher Hitchens’s review in Newsweek of the anti-Semite’s bizarre new book.
