Why does anyone even listen to Bill Kristol?

(via Think Progress)

This morning on Fox, Bill Kristol continued to escalate his calls for war against Iran, stating, “We can try diplomacy. I’m not very hopeful about that. We have to be ready to use force.” Kristol claimed the people of Iran would embrace “the right use of targeted military force.” He added that military force could “trigger changes in Iran,” causing them to embrace regime change. Watch it.

The same thing was said about Iraq. How did that work out?

And there’s this gem from Informed Comment:

Another dissection of the failures of the Neocons, this time by Harold Meyerson. He writes that Krisol said, ‘”There’s been a certain amount of pop sociology in America,” he told National Public Radio listeners in the war’s opening weeks, “that the Shia can’t get along with the Sunni and the Shia in Iraq want to establish some kind of Islamic fundamentalist regime. There’s been almost no evidence of that at all,” he continued. “Iraq’s always been very secular.”

Oh come on! That’s beyond being merely wrong…
