Kristol: ‘Better’ For US to Attack Iran Than if Israel Did

By David Edwards and Gavin Dahl
Raw Story” — The Obama administration should be seriously considering a strike on Iran, according to neoconservative Fox News contributor Bill Kristol.

An Israeli Deputy Defense Minister said last week that he expected Israel would have to attack Iran within a year. Kristol believes it would be better for the US to attack first.

“I think we have to have a credible threat of force and the preparation to use force against Iran. It would be much better if we used force against — to delay the Iranian nuclear program than if Israel did and there is no evidence that the US government is being at all serious about the use force there,” Kristol told Fox News’ Chris Wallace Sunday.

Nina Easton, also appearing on the Fox News Sunday panel, quickly rebuked Kristol. “Use of force. You say that so blithely as if use of force — what happens to next day after the use of force?” she asked. “I think it behooves us to get the international community together. You have to have sanctions and you have to have a clear threat of force.”

The narrow range of debate on Fox News varied only slightly from sanctions and threatening force to launching a US-led war on Iran. Easton said she would also like to see the Obama administration “curry dissent” in Iran.

Kristol’s trigger-finger was too itchy to keep his views in the holster.

“Look, precisely because the consequences are so serious whether we use force or Israel uses force, a serious and responsible US government must think that through and play that out,” he responded. “I would say the Obama administration is so adverse to even hinting at the use of force that we don’t have the kinds of preparations we should have if Israel were to strike.”

Keep in mind that Kristol’s Father (Irving Kristol) was a co-founder of the Neoconservatism movement. The Israeli flag was draped on his coffin during his recent funeral as such was mentioned in the Newsweek article that Steve Sniegoski discussed via the following write-up of his:

    What is wrong with these people? They want the US to fight their beefs? The propagandists who hyed getting the US to attack Iraq based on lies, turned out to be a huge fiasco costing taxpayers 3 trillion $! So here we go again! This AM on FOX, they mentioned Iran violating the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty? Oh? How’s that? They don’t have nukes. Israel has them but refuses to sign the Treaty – so who’s the real problem? The gorilla in the room seems to be Israel, a threat to all its neighbors and to world peace and security. Even the Vatican said recently that all the M.E. problems are due to Israel’s occupation. Americans do not want another war and they’ve learned not to listen to the armchair warriors.

  • It appears that you’ve put a solid amount of effort into your article and I want to see a lot more of these on the Internet these days. I truly got a kick out of your post. I do not have a bunch to to say in reply, I only wanted to register to say phenomenal work.

    Billy Kristol is trying to follow in the footsteps of his father Irving Kristol. Irving is credited with establishing the Neo Conservative Movement, which in reality, is thinly disguised Trotskyite Communism, and communism being a Jews creation in itself.

    The more masks they create for world Jewish supremacism, the more apparent they become.

    America, as it stands at the moment, is little more than a mercenary army and money pit for Zionist Israel’s world domination objectives. The blood of our children, and the economic blood of our nation is poured out upon the ground for the vain, psychopathic, megalomaniac goals of Judaism.

    It’s time we bring their plans and the manipulations to an immediate halt. The is America, it is not Israel. America was not intended to be an empire, and especially not a Jewish controlled one. America was created and intended to be a strong nation standing tall among other strong nations.

    Insist that Israel obey the 70 or so UN Mandates it currently thumbs it’s nose at.

    Remove Israel from American politics and foreign policy.
