‘The Nation’ editor, Katrina vanden Heuvel suggests to Bill Kristol, ‘Enlist in the Iraqi army’

Liberal mouthpiece and editor of “The Nation”, Katrina vanden Heuvel told neoconservative chickenhawk something many of us would love the chance to do, during Sunday morning’s ABC This Week.

Discussing the calls for more war in the Middle East and Iraq, vanden Heuvel noted while sitting next to Weekly Standard editor, Bill Kristol, “We’re sitting here at a moment, George, where we’re talking about John Boehner, but the central question of war and peace for the country — there’s no military solution to Iraq,” vanden Heuvel stated. “And I have to say, sitting next to Bill Kristol, man — the architects of catastrophe that have cost this country trillions of dollars, thousands of lives,  there should be accountability.

“If there are no regrets for the failed assumptions that have so grievously wounded this nation, or politics and media accountability,” she went on. “We need it Bill, because this country should not go back to war. We don’t need armchair warriors. And if you feel so strongly, you should, with all due respect, enlist in the Iraqi army.”

“That’s a very cute line, Katrina,” is all Kristol could come back with cringing at the thought of actually donning a uniform and actually fighting for something he believes in, instead of other’s sons and daughters.
