On Face The NationLieberman: Bomb Iran If It Doesn’t Stop

(CBS) The United States should launch military strikes against Iran if the government in Tehran does not stop supplying anti-American forces in Iraq, Sen. Joe Lieberman said Sunday on Face The Nation.

“I think we’ve got to be prepared to take aggressive military action against the Iranians to stop them from killing Americans in Iraq,” Lieberman told Bob Schieffer. “And to me, that would include a strike into… over the border into Iran, where we have good evidence that they have a base at which they are training these people coming back into Iraq to kill our soldiers.”

Where is the evidence, Senator LIEberman [Likud-CT]? It wasn’t in the munitions, obviously stenciled by an American, for that dog-and-pony show that Caldwell ran in Baghdad. Defense Secretary Gates doesn’t say it; the ground commanders will only say that some of the weapons are Iranian in origin; but there has been no proof of Iranian government involvement presented. Before you advocate starting another war, and let’s be clear, bombing another country is an act of war, you better be able to provide some proof. We are already in one war based on “sexed-up, dodgy dossiers” and “slam dunks” that belonged in a freshman creative writing class, we don’t need to expand it. If you want to save the lives of the troops, vote to cut off funds for the war.

The Iranians actually have a functioning air defense capability, and an air force. They cannot stop an American air assault, but they can make it “expensive.” If Iran retaliates, we will lose our current assets in Iraq, a regional war will be triggered, and oil from the Persian Gulf will stop flowing.

Someone needs to give Lieberman a wedgie and stick him in a locker for the rest of the semester, because this crap belongs in a middle school.
