Kasich: ‘I Would Never Have Committed Ourselves to Iraq’
KASICH: "Well, we should have had a base left in Iraq, for sure."
BASH: "But do you think that President George W. Bush, who launched the attack initially, bears some responsibility?"
KASICH: "Well, look, I would have never committed ourselves to Iraq. And, as you can see, ultimately, it’s probably going to end up being divided into three parts. I think the Kurds are great allies of ours. And we have got to be very conscious of some of the things that they need and balance that off against the Turks, because that’s become an issue over there. But all the religions of the world ought to stand up and say, you blow up innocent men, women, and children, and you think you’re going to paradise, there’s something wrong with you, you’re nuts, and if we catch you, we’re going to throw you into prison, maybe for the rest of your life."
