Kristol Blasts Romney For Not Mentioning The War

Posted by The Agonist on August 31st, 2012

From our partners at The Agonist

Bill Kristol is more than a mite peeved.

In his speech accepting his party’s nomination to be commander in chief, Mitt Romney said not a word about the war in Afghanistan. Nor did he utter a word of appreciation to the troops fighting there, or to those who have fought there. Nor for that matter were there thanks for those who fought in Iraq, another conflict that went unmentioned…Has it ever happened that we’ve been at war and a presidential nominee has ignored, in this kind of major and formal speech, the war and our warriors?

Afghanistan has been more than a little absent from both campaigns so far, other than the inevitable “who killed bin Laden” spat – but then again so have Yemen, Somalia, the Philipines and various other places US forces are fighting. There’s a massive disconnect showing here, between the general public who are tired of American over-reach on the long slow slide down from the peak of power and folk like Kristol who still see the military as a universal answer to every foreign policy question. Romney knows Kristol and the like will vote for him anyways.
