"I am for a war with Iran if we have to..." Thanks Chris Matthews, now STFU

since you were manipulated by Cheney and his henchmen to get us into a war with Iraq and out Valerie Plame.
Who are you to say if we should go to war with anyone since you will believe anyone?

1. Starting a war will require money

and that will require an immediate, no strings attached increase in the debt ceiling.

America must be united in wartime, you know.

9. Yes of course

And I find it extremely curious that there is always, ALWAYS plenty of $$$$ for WAR but we're also always on the threshold of bankruptcy (a la Greece) because of Social Security, Medicare, etc. and we need to make the "tough decision" to cut them yesterday! Hmmmmm.................

He really lost it and hasn't recovered. I don't watch his show anymore (except when I'm too busy to change the channel).

23. Not from what I saw of him before the Iraq War

I had access to cable at that time and Chris Matthews was clearly opposed to the war. He was one of the few people on TV that I saw who opposed the war. He even spoke the 'N' word at that time: neocon.

20. Tweety's been a right-wing wolf in a liberal sheep's clothing for quite some time...

....and this nonsense about being for a war in Iran should be the final eyeopener for quite a few people.

What do we have to do to get this lying windbag off the air?

But I think he has some sort of split personality thing going. Something snapped in him after the first general election debate and now he's back in conservadem/neocon mode.

28. technically i am for war with any country, if we have to.

that's sorta part and parcel of adhering to a modern nation-state identity. there's no "allies" we won't fight if they decided to invade us. such a platitude is specious.

the only thing that matters is who gets to define "if we have to" and why they define it so. too often the "if we have to" ends up being for reasons of personal gain more than anything. one should always doubt war's justification.

this is simply tail chasing stupidity. but it's also unsurprising. Tweety is a born malcontent. without controversy he is nothing. to be ignored as irrelevant is his greatest fear. we should give it to him.

I think overall he's a good guy, but for someone who's as prone to saying really (really) dumb stuff on the air, he's picked an odd profession. He really should be a poltical columnist.

34. The Iraq war manipulation was quite masterful, I am sure they can do it again for Iran

They actually used the truth about WMD's in Iraq, but really played with the time frame. Most of the WMD information was collected during the 80's when we were helping Iraq with it's war with Iran. Iraq did have and actually used WMD's during that war on it's own Kurdish populations and the Iranians who were kicking their butt. Fast forward to GW1 and GW2, that information was dredged up and used for justification for US entry. The original weapons were either used or neglected to the point they were not viable for military use and presented only local hazmat problems. When we tried to find the weapons in GW2, all that was left was empty and rusted casings covered in 20 years of dust.

War with Iran can be justified in the same manner by using an element of truth and twisting it to elicit the desired effect you want.

History will repeat itself yet again.
