Joe's escalation op-ed

By Creature

Right on cue Independent Republican Democrat Joe Lieberman crawls back up the president's ass and marches in lock-step with a call for more troops. Forget the fact that our troops are caught in the middle of a civil war. Forget the fact that Sunni insurgents want their power (oil) back. Forget the fact that the real central front in the so-called terror war has already been lost in Pakistan. All we must remember is, wait for it, September the 11th.

On one side are extremists and terrorists led and sponsored by Iran, on the other moderates and democrats supported by the United States. Iraq is the most deadly battlefield on which that conflict is being fought. How we end the struggle there will affect not only the region but the worldwide war against the extremists who attacked us on Sept. 11, 2001.

If George Bush owned a parrot he would likely name it Joe.

The Lieberman editorial can be found in today's Washington Post.

UPDATE: Not only does Joe want to escalate the war we are already fighting, he has just declared war on Iran. This "new way forward" is going to be bloody indeed. I'll let Glenn Greenwald take it from here.
