(Neocon Zionist Jew) Kristol Is Pushing For ‘The Next World War’
October 14, 2007
On Fox News Sunday, right-wing pundit Bill Kristol continued to beat the war drums for a strike against Iran. “I hope the administration is willing to do what it takes to back Iran off,” he said, adding that “we may need to do stuff across the border.”
NPR’s Mara Liasson claimed that the Bush administration could politically “withstand” an attack against Iran, and that a bombing raid inside Iran would not count as “an all-out war.”
NPR’s Juan Williams noted that Liasson and Kristol were in effect condoning “the next world war”:
WILLIAMS: I think what Bill Kristol is saying is he wants some action against Iran in a way that Israel apparently took action against Syria. And I think what you’re looking at then is the next world war. […]Kristol responded by citing the recent Israeli airstrike on Syria as evidence for his claim that a strike on Iran would not have deeper consequences. “Has the Israeli action against Syria spread war? Has that destabilized the region?” Kristol asked. Watch it: (voir l'extrait vidéo)
And if we now say the U.S. is going to take action against Iran, and it’s not as a result of some specific provocative action, then you’re talking about spreading war.
Last year, Williams told Kristol: “You just want war, war, war, and you want us in more war. ”
Neither Liasson nor Kristol should fool themselves about the consequences of striking Iran. Former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski recently said "that Iran would likely react to an American attack “by intensifying the conflict in Iraq and also in Afghanistan, their neighbors, and that could draw in Pakistan. We will be stuck in a regional war for twenty years.”"
Neoconservatives – an American movement of newly conservative former liberals and leftwingers that originated in the 1970s and shifted sharply to the Right supporting Presidents Reagan, Bush Snr and Jnr. Their positions are marked by anti-Communism, pro-Zionism and radical market economics, a strong penchant for American unilateralism in foreign policy, as associated with think tanks such as the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) and the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA). Its founders are usually cited as Irving Kristol and Norman Podhoretz
