Bill Kristol Really Hopes Someone Can Get Americans Riled Up For War Again

Bill Kristol Really Hopes Someone Can Get Americans Riled Up For War Again

TOM KLUDT – MARCH 18, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT15429

Bill Kristol doesn’t want to hear about how Americans are tired of war.

The forever-bellicose Kristol writes in the latest issue of The Weekly Standard that all this talk of the country’s “war-weariness” is nothing more than “an excuse to avoid maintaining our defenses or shouldering our responsibilities.”

Indeed, the consistently wrong pundit is right that most Americans these days don’t share his longing for war. And he correctly notes that the wars he’s spent the better part of the last decade advocating likely contributed to the nation’s fatigue.

Iraq War architect Bill Kristol complains about American “war-weariness”

The leading neoconservative says war-weariness is “an excuse to avoid… shouldering our responsibilities”

Bill Kristol, son of neoconservative titan Irving Kristol and editor of the Weekly Standard, has a new essay up at the Standard’s website, decrying American war-weariness and chastising politicians who use Americans’ desire to avoid war as “as an excuse to avoid maintaining our defenses or shouldering our responsibilities.”

“Are Americans today war-weary?” Kristol begins. “Sure. The Iraq and Afghanistan wars have been frustrating and tiring.”
