“In appreciation of his buffoonery…”

In calling for U.S. intervention in Egypt, Libya, and Syria– Kristol wrote…
The Arab Spring deserves to be greeted with enthusiasm and support.
The Arab winter is over. The men and women of the Greater Middle East are no longer satisfied by “a little life.”
Now it’s of course possible that this will turn out to be a false spring. But surely it’s not beyond the capacity of the United States and its allies to help reformers in the Arab world achieve mostly successful outcomes—in Iraq, where we need to be sure that we don’t fritter away the extraordinary gains that have been made in the last four years, and in Egypt and Tunisia. In Libya, halfway competent Obama administration policies should enable the Libyan people to get rid of Muammar Qaddafi. Regime change in Syria looks possible, and would surely be more likely with our aid and encouragement.
I feel, at the very least? Kristol owes us a “my bad”.
