Lieberman Backs Limited U.S. Attacks on Iran
Posted by nytexan on June 10, 2007
Joe Lieberman is out of his freaking mind. One of Bush’s favorite bootlickers, is obviously out there spinning what we all know is coming down the pike; an attack on Iran.
WASHINGTON, June 10 — Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, an independent who strongly supports the war in Iraq, said today that unless Iran stops training Iraqis to carry out anti-coalition attacks, the United States should launch cross-border attacks into Iran.
“I think we’ve got to be prepared to take aggressive military action against the Iranians to stop them from killing Americans in Iraq,” Mr. Lieberman said in an interview on the CBS News program “Face the Nation.”
This could be achieved mostly with air attacks, Mr. Lieberman said, adding, “I’m not talking about a massive ground invasion of Iran.”
The comment from Mr. Lieberman of Connecticut, who is sometimes a swing vote in the closely divided Senate, went far beyond the official position in the Bush administration, which has warned Iran about supporting Iraqi insurgents but also recently held high-level talks with Iranian officials. There was no immediate White House reaction.
Really “no immediate White House reaction” of course not; Lieberman is among the mouthpieces for this administration. If this dangerous and stupid statement was said by any democrat, the White House would be all over it. But since it’s a Bush lackey it doesn’t surprise me.
Mr. Lieberman said he supported the high-level talks with Iran, but added that there was “incontrovertible” evidence that Iranians were training Iraqis to use the explosives, which are blamed for killing as many as 200 Americans.
Oh yeah Joe, just like the incontrovertible evidence on WMD’s.
How in the hell did Joe Lieberman ever get picked for V.P. This guy just didn’t wake up one day and say “today I’m wing nut”; no he has always been a wing nut. Lieberman continues to expose himself for what he really is a Reich-wing terrorist.
I’m sure that in a few days we’ll hear from other members of the Bush bootlicking club; Susan Collins (Reinhard Gehlen),who sits on the Homeland Security Committee will have some secret document that support the Heir Lieberman’s (Paul Joseph Goebbels) crap; John Cornyn (Otto Georg Thierack) who has yet to sign off on the restoration of Habeas Corpus so we can keep the gulags open for the Iranians.
The loyal three musketeers, aiding and abiding in the continued delusions and war crimes of Bush, their Fuhrer.
