Democratic Strategist, James Carville told host George Stephonopoulos on This Week Sunday that we have bombed Muslims for 13 years ,and we’ll probably still be bombing them 13 years from now.
Carville admitted that this might be the only way to deal with the problem of radical Islam, but suggested that if we are “brave enough” to send bombers who might be shot down maybe, we should at least try to do more.
Stephonopoulos and Republican strategist Ana Navarro pointed out that the president has not asked Congress to pass an authorization to use military force, and that he is counting on the AUMF from the Bush administration which authorized the use of force in Iraq to justify the limited measures that he has decided to take.
Carville is not likely to find many in the country today who would agree with him that we should go back to Iraq to wage a full-scale war. The people are tired of a never-ending war. This time we have found ourselves in a quagmire that we may never be able to fully escape, unlike in Vietnam where we were able to get out and leave the Vietnamese to sort it out on their own.
