Chris Matthews: Killing Arabs On Television "Might Have Something To Do With Jihad"


CHRIS MATTHEWS: We watched this gory hanging, this absurd hanging, of Saddam Hussein, while these thugs went about this thing on television. We watched this, on our watch. It happened because of us, we gave them the power to do this to the guy. Okay, you start making the big time moral decisions like that, saying 'Oh, these are the good guys, these are the bad guys.' I think it’s very dangerous.

I have to admit, I’m a Vietnam era guy. I’m always suspicious of foreign involvement. Nine out of ten times I say the best move is to let them solve their own problems in the end, as horrible as that may be. As long as Syrians are fighting Syrians that’s better than us fighting Syrians.

And by the way, if we don’t stop killings Arabs on international television one of these days -- that’s all we do is kill Arabs on international television. We don’t fight Africans, we don’t fight Europeans, Who do we fight? Islamic people, on International television. I think that might have something to do with jihad, just guessing. Don’t you?
