LIEBERMAN ON IRAN: THERE AREN'T ENOUGH U.S. CASUALTIES IN IRAQ, SO LET'S DO IRAN
Not an exact quote, obviously...
Lieberman won't hear of pulling out of Iraq despite mounting casualties--over 3,500 dead and 10,000+ wounded. To him, that means we're making "significant progress." At any rate, to the warmongers, the current casualty rate in no way constitutes an argument for stopping the war. In fact, the more casualties we inflict and receive, the longer we need to keep fighting, according to this logic. It's like the "it's only a flesh wound" knight in "The Holy Grail" and we all know what happened to him.
Now Lieberman asserts that Iran may be responsible for the deaths of 200 soldiers and that's why he wants to attack Iran. Rather than suggesting that we move our troops in Iraq out of harm's way so that won't happen anymore, Lieberman wants to send more troops into the meatgrinder. And if and when we do attack Iran and more of our soldiers start dying, that will only be a reason for us to send more to the slaughter, according to Lieberman's logic.
I can't believe Ned Lamont lost to this clown...
I don't think I said exactly what I meant above.
I thought about it more today and what I was trying to say is that Lieberman's logic is so fucked up...because 3,500 dead is not horrific enough for him to want to stop fighting in Iraq, yet 200 dead is so horrific that we have to start another war with Iran in which we'll surely kill more people and have more of our people killed...it makes absolutely no motherfucking sense...it doesn't add up. It's wasteful and sick and murderous, the way this guy has a hard-on for war.
