Zemblan patriot J.M. writes that we should perhaps be willing to indulge the wee, gamine Joe Lieberman in his fantasy, at once homicidal and masturbatory, of an air strike on Iran. The sole condition? That Tail-Sniffer Joe agree to straddle the first bomb dropped, Slim Pickens-style, as it hurtles earthward:
Sen. Joseph Lieberman said Sunday the United States should consider a military strike against Iran because of Tehran's involvement in Iraq.Sen. Joe Lieberman: the smegma beneath the foreskin of the nuclear warhead.
"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 said. "And to me, that would include a strike 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" . . . .
Lieberman said much of the action could probably be done by air, although he would leave the strategy to the generals in charge. "I want to make clear I'm not talking about a massive ground invasion of Iran," Lieberman said.
"They can't believe that they have immunity for training and equipping people to come in and kill Americans," he said. "We cannot let them get away with it. If we do, they'll take that as a sign of weakness on our part and we will pay for it in Iraq and throughout the region and ultimately right here at home."
