War, War, War...and More War

Think Progress (watching the Sunday shout shows so you--and I for that matter--don't have to) picks up a remarkable exchange between arch-neocon William Kristol and commentator Juan Williams. Kristol having "argued" that the Bush administration's "coddling" of Iran had "invited" the current fighting in the Middle East, and that the United States should wade into the battle, Williams retorted:

You just want war, war, war, and you want us in more war. You wanted us in Iraq. Now you want us in Iran. Now you want us to get into the Middle East. … You're saying, why doesn't the United States take this hard, unforgiving line? Well, the hard and unforgiving line has been, we don't talk to anybody. We don't talk to Hamas. We don't talk to Hezbollah. We're not going to talk to Iran. Where has it gotten us, Bill?

Kristol threw up his hands and didn't answer.

And this was on Fox!
