Fox News Analyst: I Would Have Bombed Iran Years Ago

Monica Crowley said on Fox News if it was up to her, she would have bombed Iran years ago to curtail their nuclear program.

Fox News' Monica Crowley went kind of crazy on The O'Reilly Factor while she and Kirsten Powers were debating Bibi Netanyahu's speech this evening. BIllO harped on the fact that nobody can trust Iran to honor any deal and Kirsten commented that Bibi should never had been invited to the US to make the speech because it was all about bashing president Obama since we're doing everything we can do.

That's when Monica started to unravel as she defended the Israeli Prime Minister and then got unhinged when she was asked by Powers if she would attack Iran.

Crowley: Is a military strike. Yes, and President Crowley would have done this years ago

This actually surprised O'Reilly, so he pressed her on it. Finally when Kirsten asked Bill if he agreed with her position, he flatly said no.

Conservatives have been ramping up the war porn since the economy has been improving and ISIS has become more outrageous in the terror, but Bibi's speech has turned some of them blood thirsty. The idea that we would have just sent a few tactical air strikes into Iran years ago and that would have destroyed any ambitions they have on nuclear power is feeble. feeble and deadly. The chain reaction would have been all out war in the middle east against the west and even St. Ronnie knew this. I mean he was selling them weapons for God's sake. That's the type of analysis we can expect from the right these days.

Crowley: And by the way, nothing is going to stop Iran, you're dealing with an apocalyptic regime..

O'Reilly: So what do you do? You wanna to attack them now?

Crowley: They're made up of literalists...

O'Reilly: Everybody knows that.

Crowley: Not everybody knows this,

O'Reilly: Right, so what's the answer?

Crowley: ...this president doesn't know this, he's in the process of negotiating with people who cannot be negotiated with.

O'Reilly: I think he wants to dodge the issue until he gets out of office. Go ahead.

Powers: But Bill, why won't Monica answer that question, so you asked a very clear question about should we attack them and that's the question I always have for all these conservatives.


Crowley: must not be allowed to happen.

O'Reilly: the only way to prevent it from happening (acquiring uranium) is to attack them.

Crowley: Is a military strike. Yes, and President Crowley would have done this years ago

O'Reilly: Really?

Crowley: To prevent the position we are in right now..

O'Reilly: What would you have done years ago?

Crowley: You do an airborne military strike

O'Reilly: When would you have done it?

Crowley: On a nuclear facility, before it had gotten all out of hand

O'Reilly: When would you have done it?

Crowley: Years ago. Not now, it's all underground...North Koreans have been building underground tunnels and now so many of these sites are

O'Reilly: They're underground, but we still have those bunker busters, we could go get them.

Powers: Do you agree with Bill, what she just said?

O'Reilly: Attacking them? No.
