William Kristol Confronted On CSPAN By A Caller: "LIAR"

william-kristol.jpg Faiz caught this the other day and I wanted to post the video. William the Bloody Kristol was a guest on CSPAN and took a call from an Iraq "war wife," and she let him have it. She obviously knew what she was talking about because she brought up the warmongers over at the American Enterprise Institute as people promoting this war. She called on the chickenhawks to institute a draft to give these suffering families a break...As you listen to his response, you know he wants more war and more war.

Kristol:...for the foreign policy obligations we're likely to have to impose on our military---for the war fighting obligations we're going to have to impose on the all volunteer military...

What obligations is he talking about, Iran? I guess we're now TEAM America, the World Police:

teamamerica.jpg Caller: "I’m sure when your head hits the pillow you have a luxury of dreaming about anything that your mind will allow you to dream about… I sleep with the phone under the pillow. My kids — if someone rings the doorbell, instead of normal kids they freeze. And they’re in elementary school. You all don’t understand. We are military people, but we are people, too. And the stress that we are under is tremendous."

I like how William has to tell us that a friend just came back from Iraq as if that makes it all better. WK also is for a draft... TP: "The caller also told Kristol that he was a “liar” for claiming that it’s “mostly the insurgents attacking us,” versus members of the Iraqi population. “They don’t want us there,” she said. “I understand you truly believe what you’re saying but it’s not working. We can’t want it for them more than they want it for themselves.”

Can you help us out?
