BUSH: We did spread it out. Of course -- I want to defend the contribution that a country like Slovenia made. It wasn't a huge number of troops, but it was -- they made a sacrifice.
O'REILLY: Poland, too.
BUSH: They did. They were the first…
O'REILLY: Poland was big.
BUSH: …special operators.
O'REILLY: If everybody was like Poland we would have already defeated these people. In your book, you are very generous…
BUSH: The thing I love about you is you are quite provocative, but go ahead.
BUSH: Little old gentle O'Reilly. Go ahead.
O'REILLY: You are very generous to China in your book. I'm not so sure about China. They haven't helped us with Iran. In fact, they've hurt us with Iran, OK?
BUSH: They have different interests. I put the story in there, what keeps you up at night?
O'REILLY: Can I answer that?
BUSH: Yes, 25 million new jobs a year. So if that's what keeps you up at night, you are interested in resources necessary to grow your economy.
O'REILLY: But surely China and Russia, the two ones who have enabled Iran to take this ridiculous stance, surely they understand the danger that you understand, President Obama understands, that if this guy has a nuclear weapon that can go off anywhere. They just hand a dirty bomb to someone else. They don't care?
BUSH: Well, there is a lot of different interests in the world and the job of the president and job of other like-minded people is to continue to focus everybody's attention on the ultimate problem with Iran. But, yes, they care. But they also want to create wealth in their economy, and they want to grow jobs. And that's what makes this issue so difficult is that there are different interests. Not everybody agrees with you or me, and the job of diplomacy is to continue to rally the coalition. I believe any U.S. president must use diplomacy to solve the problem before any other methods are used.
O'REILLY: Most certainly. President Obama agrees with you on that. So there is some common ground. Now, I know you don't care about this…
BUSH: Right. I probably don't, but go ahead.
