It was the Nazis who developed and defined the idea of a “blitzkrieg.”Â Pat Buchanan has apologized for the Nazis.Â Is he thus comparing the Israelis favorably to those whom he believed nobly defended their fatherland against the diabolical Churchill?
Well, in my view, Pat Buchanan’s just another loony figure comparing Israel to the Nazis, even if he’s not as adverse to the latter as most who make the comparison.
UPDATE to revise my explanation:Â Buchanan thinks the Nazis were justified in invading Poland with their “blitzkrieg.”Â That suggests he believes a blitzkrieg to be a good thing.Â Ergo, if he calls Israel’s operation a blitzkrieg, he thinks their operation is justified.
I guess that means he supports it.Â That doesn’t make him any less of a crackpot.Â And the Israeli operation is anything but a blitzkrieg.Â But, then again, Buchanan does have a problem with world history.
