104. Lieberman enthusiastically supports an immoral war
Edited on Tue Jul-04-06 08:33 AM by bronxiteforever
His stance on social issues is great-but the rubber meets the road with the war-we are bleeding morally, fiscally and bodily due to Iraq. I have a problem with all of these Senators, who, when Vietnam was in play IN THEIR LIVES THEY LET OTHERS GO AND DIE FOR THEM (Lieberman is in good company with the chicken hawks of the GOP such as Mitch McConnell etc). Here it is the same policy-send some other persons' kid is sent to die-it smacks of royalty-there is no personal risk for these politicians so in a large sense I find this cowardly-the war hasn't been an abstract theory to the thousands Iraqis dead and our troops with PTSD and amputations. The Rethugs enjoy the war card because it makes them look strong but it is so harmful to our country that we could spend hours listing the way this policy has hurt us. Lieberman's failure to see this or admit he was wrong is a policy difference of the highest type.
