Lieberman Thinks Iran Has 'Declared War'

Once again, Lieberman is out neo-conning the neo-cons. Sen. Joe Lieberman, Connecticut independent, yesterday called for the U.S. to confront Iran

Once again, Lieberman is out neo-conning the neo-cons.

Sen. Joe Lieberman, Connecticut independent, yesterday called for the U.S. to confront Iran — possibly with militarily force — after U.S. military officials reported that Iran was training Iraqi Shi'ite fighters, reports S.A. Miller of The Washington Times.

"These revelations should be a wake-up call to the United States about the threat posed by the Islamic Republic of Iran, as well as a reminder why Iraq is, in fact, the central front of the global war on terror," said Mr. Lieberman....

"Although no one desires a conflict with Iran, the fact is that the Iranian government by its actions has declared war on us," said Mr. Lieberman, the 2000 Democratic nominee for vice president.

And with that, Lieberman slips just a little bit further from reality.
