Joe Lieberman Predicts Military Action Against Iran Before The End Of 2014

The neocons continue to beat the war drums on Iran.
Views:

As we've already discussed here, the legislation being pushed by a bipartisan group of Senators could very well draw the United States into a war with Iran, and the White House has said that President Obama would veto the bill if it passes, but that didn't stop neocon and former Sen. Joe Lieberman from making this prediction on Fox News Sunday:

LIEBERMAN: Yes, I want to talk about the legislation introduced in the Senate now sponsored by almost 50 members, which would impose tougher new sanctions on Iran if these negotiations fail.

President Obama has threatened to veto over it; the Iranians say if it passes, they'll walk away from the table. I believe bipartisan majority in both houses of Congress will adopt these tougher sanctions on Iran. The president will not veto it and Iran will not walk away from the table. That's the good news.

The bad news is I think that the tougher sanctions will not convince Iran to find a diplomatic way to end their nuclear weapons project and I think there is a better than even chance that before the end of 204 the U.S. and/or Israel will take military action to disable Iran's nuclear program.

Talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy. Lieberman didn't offer any proof as to why President Obama would suddenly reverse his position and sign the legislation. I also don't believe for one minute that Lieberman believes that an attack on Iran would be a bad thing.
