Crossfire Classic: ’88 comments on Middle East, Syria ring true today

Every day as we count down to Crossfire’s return to CNN, we’re looking back at “classic” moments from the program’s history. Today Newt Gingrich looks back on a night 25 years ago – when former U.N Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick said something about the Middle East, including Syria, that’s as true now as it was when she said it.

Crossfire returns to CNN this Monday at 6:30pm ET.

    When should you kill people to stop them from killing other people? In an attempt to stop people from killing other people, when is it okay to kill people who had nothing to do with carrying out the attack? If we are going to consider options, why can't we consider bringing our troops home from Afghanistan first??? This entire charade of war has lasted far too long since it is now been a generation lost for nothing but making Wall Street rich off the blood of American youth. Our nation is foundering like a rudderless ship at sea due to indecision in many areas. We have economic, social, employment, health, environmental, etc... issues many of which stem from the Wall Street takeover of our economy which resulted in our economic collapse. We must cut our losses and might as well begin with stopping the loss of our best and brightest.

    For all you fools who are in support of another war, shame on you!
