Regarding Sheldon Adelson, Haim Saban et al., Pat Buchanan writes, “This billionaires boys club wants to buy U.S. foreign policy and a U.S. war on Iran. ”
Pat adds that “the propagandists” at Foundation for Defense of Democracies are paid to produce that war (funded by the boys club). FDD is a strident Washington-based neoconservative think tank that Pat labels a “War Party” think tank.
Pat notes that research from Salon shows that in just 2011 alone FDD took in $19 million from five rabidly pro-Israel givers. Mr. Buchanan notes that Adelson and Haim plan to dump hundreds of millions of dollars into the 2016 presidential campaign.
What does the pair want from our next president? According to the Washington Post’s Phil Rucker and Tom Hamburger, action on Iran:
“Saban said that fundamentalist Iranians represent a real threat. If necessary to defend Israel, and as a last resort, he added, ‘I would bomb the living daylights out of the sons of bitches.’”
Echoed the 81-year-old Adelson, “I would not just talk. I would take action.”
Last year, at Yeshiva University, Adelson, who pumped $150 million into the 2012 campaign, said the U.S. should fire a nuclear missile into the Iranian desert as a warning to end their nuclear program, or the next atom bomb would be dropped on Teheran.
