Conn. Senator Says The U.S. Should Strike If Tehran Keeps Helping Anti-U.S. Forces In Iraq

(CBS) The United States should launch military strikes against Iran if the government in Tehran does not stop supplying anti-American forces in Iraq, Sen. Joe Lieberman said Sunday on Face The Nation. "I think we've got to be prepared to take aggressive military action against the Iranians to stop them from killing Americans in Iraq," Lieberman told Bob Schieffer. "And to me, that would include a strike into... over the border into Iran, where we have good evidence that they have a base at which they are training these people coming back into Iraq to kill our soldiers."
The Indepedent former Democrat from Connecticut said that he was not calling for an invasion of Iran, but he did say the U.S. should target specific training camps. "I think you could probably do a lot of it from the air, but they can't believe that they have immunity for training and equipping people to come in and kill Americans," Lieberman said. Lieberman, who has been one of Congress's most outspoken supporters of the Bush Administration's Iraq war policies, said that confronting continuing the fight in Iraq and confronting Iran are necessary for achieving a wider peace in the Middle East. If the U.S. does not act against Iran, "they'll take that as a sign of weakness on our part and we will pay for it in Iraq and throughout the region and ultimately right here at home," Lieberman said. He said that he has seen evidence that the Iranians are supplying insurgents and foreign fighters in Iran.

Lieberman: Bomb Iran If It Doesn't Stop

O! Your jagged lips again are upon my throat. Made rough by their drought
Hiding behind the broker of death.

There upon them is certain madness puckered and prepared to kiss,
To wet their looming course with deceit and blood.

Are these bone-dry lips not pursed upon my willful sightlessness,
Yet succulent in their own lusty course?

Your parched and loveless words lick the heels of a world’s sorrow
And I'll not soothe them with the balm of innocents.

I will not gaze upon their countenance or even touch them
To arouse their hunger or give them any weight.

They’ve not extended any love to me
or the world.

They can only teach the craving for it...
They cannot teach its need.
