Know nothing Kristol at it again

From the man who thought that Sunnis and Shites would get along without a problem once we entered Iraq we have the latest worthless but dangerous pronouncement.

 

Bill Kristol has been doing the happy dance since President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech. As thinkprogress reports Kristol is under the delusion that Obama’s speech somehow confirmed the neo-conservative (Bush/Cheney/Kristol, etc.) position on the “war on terror”.

 

Today on FOX News Sunday Kristol claimed that the speech was Obama’s version of the Bush doctrine and continued with

 

“There’s this one sentence, “There will be times when nations – acting individually or in concert – will find the use of force not only necessary but morally justified.”

 

“That’s a pretty striking statement. I mean any American president should say that who’s looking at Iran developing nuclear weapons. I think he is, it’s not just that Israel might use preemptive force against Iran. This speech lays the predicate for a legitimate use of force to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons by the U.S.”

 

Kristol apparently cherry picked what he wanted to hear in that speech.

 

Obama actually stated that “I know that engagement with repressive regimes lacks the satisfying purity of indignation. But I also know that sanctions without outreach — and condemnation without discussion — can carry forward a crippling status quo. No repressive regime can move down a new path unless it has the choice of an open door.”

 

“The satisfying purity of indignation,” as Matt Duss noted, is “a wonderfully succinct description of the simplistic and destructive ideology that drove George W. Bush’s foreign policy, and which Bill Kristol is still trying heartily to convince himself and others hasn’t been discredited.”

 

Kristol’s remarks should set off alarm bells ringing in every Democrat’s and every Independent’s head that if the Republicans regain control and the likes of Kristol, Cheney and others have any influence we will probably see another war. This time with Iran.
