He Said That? 12/1/17

From Garrison Keillor (born 1942), American novelist, humorist, comedian, and public radio personality, Real Time with Bill Maher (15 October 2004):

Well, they’re taking kids out of the country and sending them over there, National Guard kids and Army Reserve. They’re sending kids who are barely prepared for this, and they’re sending them over there to kill people, which is a serious thing. And to kill not terrorists, but to kill insurgents. I sort of find myself in agreement, uncomfortably, with Patrick Buchanan, who writes about this in his book, Where The Right Went Wrong. And writes that great powers, the way they skidded off the road, was getting involved in wars. That it’s the role of great powers to stay out of wars.
