Mr. Buchanan,

You’ve written another brilliant column []. Why we must engage in such foreign adventures at a time we ourselves are bankrupt and competing against the countries we protect in the world marketplace seems to be a matter of inertia more than prudent foreign policy.

In missing the opportunity to place you in the White House decades ago, this country may have written its own epitaph, for I haven’t seen anyone take that office in the intervening years with a fraction of the understanding of world affairs as you have.
