Last week we heard from the very wise Sen. Lindsey Graham about how one should "open the Pandora's box and then empty it" when dealing with Iran's nuclear program, encouraging president Obama to follow the neoconservative ways and seriously consider the use of military force on Iran.
Not a week goes by without one politician calling for confrontation with Iran. This week I will bring you one of favorites of the military industrial complex and war think thanks, AIPAC stooge and influential politician Connecticut 'independent' senator Joe Lieberman. Echoing the wise words of Graham, Lieberman goes on to say:
"It is time to retire our ambiguous mantra about all options remaining on the table. It is time for our message to our friends and enemies in the region to become clearer: namely, that we will prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability -- by peaceful means if we possibly can, but with military force if we absolutely must "
He then goes on to hint that we should not let Israel carry the burden of attacking Iran. We should attack ourselves!
"If military action must come, the United States is in the strongest position to confront Iran and manage the regional consequences. This is not a responsibility we should outsource. We can and should coordinate with our many allies who share our interest in stopping a nuclear Iran, but we cannot delegate our global responsibilities to them. "
The fact that military strikes on Iran is a futile and destructive policy and against American interests is know to most, if not all of the sane analysts and foreign policy experts (even the military cheifs acknowledge that it is). And for US senators of all people to openly turn their backs on American interests and American public opinion and call for such measures is treason and criminal.
Again, I do not expect any condemnation from the loud but very few self-proclaimed "Iranian experts/activists" in diaspora whose only job seems to be to sabotage any chance for moderation and bring about the next major conflict in the middle-east. To these individuals, anyone who is pushing back against delusional politicians like Joe Lieberman and their all powerful, war-supporting friends, must be a regime sympathizer or have some kind of secret ties to the regime.
