Closer to War With Iran

Thanks to The American Street which led me to Firedoglakewhich led me to Crooks and Liars for the heads-up on this latest development in our really sick Senate's escapades...we are one step closer to war with Iran through passage of the Lieberman Amendment (Goddess, I hate this guy). Oh, goodie. Thanks, guys, we really need this, especially since you just made certain that our returning troops will not be rested or ready for battle and will probably become totally deranged in the fight, to receive no help at home, should they make it back, to sort out their lives and remaining limbs. And, Turkey is amassing on the edge of Iraq stating that their enemies are using our weapons to fight with, and they don't like this much. Ahem.
Wow! What an august bunch of Senators we have.

Levin introduced the actual vote on the Lieberman Amendment by stressing that the Senate stands as one and that Iran had better listen. The final vote: 97 Ayes, 0 Nays.


Watch the video and read the sadness here at:

Crooks and Liars
and/or one of the other sites I mentioned. Feeling sick, think I'll hit the sack. Hope I wake up in the AM and find this has all been a bad dream.
