Thirty-Two Senators Champing at the Bit to Attack Iran

Thirty-two senators have co-sponsored a resolution promising to take military action against a “nuclear capable” Iran.  None of them were able to clearly define what they meant by “nuclear capable.”

In answer to that question, Joe LIEberman said:

“I guess everybody will determine for themselves what that means.”

He also said:

“Iran has only two choices: peacefully negotiate to end your nuclear weapons program or expect a military strike to disable that program. Distraction by negotiation while you become a nuclear power is not an option for you, and containment of a nuclear Iran is not an option for us.”

Lindsay Graham said:

“The purpose is to tell the Iranians that no matter what you think, America is not divided when it comes to dealing with you.”

If this asshole thinks the rest of America is like his own redneck state, he needs to get out more.

The only response from Senator Richard Blumenthal (D—Connecticut) was “We’re for real,” thereby putting an end to the rumor that Richard Blumenthal is only a figment of somebody’s imagination.

Q.:  Out of these thirty-two warmongering senators, how many of them are planning to enlist, or to personally contribute something — ANYTHING — to their orgasmic war fantasy?

A.:  Zero.  Nada.  Zilch.

What a worthless, piece of crap resolution this is. A total waste of time. They might as well be masterbating in the bathroom.

Have they considered:
1. In this spending conscience time - how this is going to be paid for?
2. Iran may shoot back?
3. No more no-bid contracts for Halliburton?

Don't you know? We don't need to pay for killing people. We only need to pay for helping people. That's the republican economic policy.

Quick! Reinstate the draft! I think we would see a lot of politicians voting against wars if they knew they or their own kin might have to serve. So reinstate it, and enforce it so they don't try to buy exemptions for themselves and their kids.

The draft wasn't all that popular with LIEberman, who twisted himself into knots to avoid Vietnam. Funny, how he's had such a change of heart.

I think the Iranians want a nuclear deterrent. Now, why in the world would the Iranians want a nuclear deterrent? I mean, what has the U.S. ever done to Iran, right?

If there's one thing Chimpy taught the world, it's this: if you don't have WMD, GET THEM.

The DPRK and Syria both have WMD. Libya, Afghanistan, and Iraq did not.

Any questions?

Jerry: That's what they all did as soon as their press conference was over.

Erik: Don't worry, there's always money for wars. They only pinch pennies when it comes to the safety net and the infrastructure. And yes Iran would fight back with a vengeance.

Snave: I don't know, the draft during Viet Nam didn't seem to have that effect. Millions of chickenhawks got draft deferments. If a draft was universal -- no exceptions whatsoever -- that would make an impact on the warmongers and chickenhawks, but I doubt if that kind of draft would ever get passed.

JR: Yup, I wonder what changed LIEberman's mind.

Grung_e_Gene: Exactly! That was the clear intention of God and our Founding Fathers.

SW: Iranians should be grateful to us. We got rid of that dreadful leftwing president they elected (they didn't know any better) and we replaced him with the Shah, who stood for Freedom.

JR: Nope, no questions. Iran will probably learn from Iraq's mistakes.
