Krazy Kristol

According to Think Progress, which has the video, neocon extraordinaire Bill Kristol asserted on Fox News this morning that the U.S. should "be ready to use force" against Iran and that the Iranian people might even support "the right use of targeted military force".

I agree with Kristol's contention that many Iranians "dislike their regime" and that some "moderates" may be "nervous about Ahmadinejad’s recklessness". However, Kristol seems to discount Iranian nationalism entirely. Iranians may look favourably on the West, but they certainly don't want Americans to be their liberators.

First Iraq and now Iran. Kristol is at it again with his enthusiastic support for U.S. military intervention and regime change. But look how that worked out in Iraq. Does Kristol -- do any of his neocon ilk -- have any credibility left at all?

If you needed any more proof that he's jumped the shark, here you go.
