Sullivan On Kristol's Latest

Mar 14th, 2011

I argued earlier that Bill Kristol's call to arms regarding Libya was, to put it politely, poorly thought out.

Sullivan goes further:

"Kristol, recall, was one of the architects of the two worst military clusterfucks since Vietnam - a decade long nation-building effort in Afghanistan (why not the Congo?) and an invasion of Iraq on false pretenses, leading to the deaths of over a hundred thousand people while the country was under direct US supervision. It is, I understand, too much to ask of such war-mongerers whether they have any sense of shame left - that tends to be surgically removed during Fox News contract negotiations. But is it too much to ask that they acknowledge that the last two wars they argued for with such moral preening led to a human catastrophe, with no long-term security gains for the US, and vast amounts of debt? Is a total lack of reflection or responsibility now mandatory with these people?"

We love Sullly.
