A Voice of Reason

Writing in today's Washington Post, Senator Joe Lieberman, one of the few Democrats not content to surrender to the terrorists, observes:

[T]he suggestion that we can fight al-Qaeda but stay out of Iraq's "civil war" is specious, since the very crux of al-Qaeda's strategy in Iraq has been to try to provoke civil war.

The current wave of suicide bombings in Iraq is also aimed at us here in the United States -- to obscure the recent gains we have made and to convince the American public that our efforts in Iraq are futile and that we should retreat.

When politicians here declare that Iraq is "lost" in reaction to al-Qaeda's terrorist attacks and demand timetables for withdrawal, they are doing exactly what al-Qaeda hopes they will do. . .

This seems so clear as to be obvious -- but either it isn't to the Democrats, or they are so blinded by Bush-hatred and their own domestic political ambitions that they don't care.

Lieberman would like nothing better than for the US Military to stay in the Middle East indefinitely to protect Israel. He said as much, the day after he lost in the primaries to Lamont and took a jet to Israel for needed campaign funds.

You're right Earth. Why the hell would we ever want to protect and aid one of the best allies we have? That's just so stupid.
