US News Reports: Dems' Might Support Iran Warfare Out Of Political Fear

Like the man said, it's deja vu all over again. ThinkProgress highlights this snippet from U.S. News and World Report:

“Democrats on Capitol Hill are increasingly concerned that President Bush will order air strikes against targets in Iran in the next few months or even weeks. … [T]hey suspect Bush will order the bombing of Iranian supply routes, camps, training facilities, and other sites that Administration officials say contribute to American losses in Iraq. Under this scenario, Bush would not invade Iran with ground forces or zero in on Iranian nuclear facilities. But under the limited-bombing scenario, Bush could ask for a congressional vote of support…which many Democrats would feel obliged to endorse or risk looking like they weren’t supportive of the troops.”

Let's review this one more time, kids. You don't support the troops by leaving them in harm's way - or, by encouraging pre-emptive attacks on another country that will lead to even more attacks and more troop deaths.

Democrats should make clear that they will not support attacks on Iran under the conditions now being considered. That includes Democrats who are hiring my favorite bloggers one after another.

I like John Edwards, but he, Hillary, and other Dems need to make clear that tough talk about Iran isn't a blank check for more unilateral warfare from this Administration. Otherwise, they will share in the responsibility - once again - for an unnecessary war.
