“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.”
Lieberman’s plan to improve the situation in Iraq is to open another front. Great idea. What could go wrong? And I really hope that Iran respects our decision to keep this military act limited. I would hate to think that Iran would get the wrong idea and think our bombing them should lead to an escalating conflict where they mobilize a couple hundred thousand troops to attack our troops and bases in Iraq or Afghanistan. And yes, I’m being sarcastic.
