From Huffpo:

[Rachel] Maddow wondered specifically what the Republican candidates learned from waging what she called “preemptive war.” Maddow played clips of the various candidates responding to questions posed to them about a nuclear Iran. Maddow said by exception of Ron Paul, “every single Republican running for president says that he or she would gladly consider starting a preemptive war in the Middle East. No problemo.”

[Frank] Rich said that “half of [the candidates] don’t know where Iran is,” and described the candidates’ responses as “empty posturing.” He added that “they’ve learned nothing, they don’t even care if they’ve learned anything,” from the war in Iraq.
