O'Reilly: New Iraqi Government Should Rule as Hussein Did

On the June 20th edition of The O'Reilly Factor, O'Reilly again shared his feelings on how the new Iraqi government should function, saying: "Saddam was able to control Iraq, as you know, and defeat insurgencies against him. The new Iraqi government can do the same, but it needs to get much tougher."

I thought that we were trying to give the Iraqi people a humane government, and were trying to save them from Saddam Hussein's cruel and unusual ways. Bill O'Reilly doesn't seem to share that view, sharing his view on the June 19th edition of the Radio Factor: "So, I don't understand, general, why we don't have martial law in Ramadi, why we don't have shoot-on-sight curfews, why we don't have action that basically says, look, we're going to shoot first and ask questions later because this is a war. And that's what you do in war. All right?"
