We've got to abandon nation-building in Afghanistan

Against pushing us into war with Iran

The parallels between how the Bush administration pushed us into war with Iraq and how the Trump administration is pushing us into war with Iran are uncanny. But I also think there's a parallel here with Vietnam, where what Bolton and Pompeo are trying to do is put enough troops in the Gulf, that there's just a good chance there will be a Gulf of Tonkin-type incident. It's been very clear from things that the secretary of state in particular has said that that's what he hopes happens.

A mistake for those who voted for Iraq war

Q: Was it a mistake to vote to go to war in Iraq?

A: It was a mistake, because we should have been a lot more careful about going into Iraq. We should have questioned the intelligence. We should have made sure that we exhausted every opportunity before we put young American lives in danger.

Stand for national interests, but know end-game

"You won't find a stronger advocate for having very clear missions and an end-game that troops know they can achieve to get home," he told Defense One. "But you also won't find a stronger advocate for making clear to the rest of the world that America is a strong country and we will stand up for our national interests and our allies around the globe."
