Dick Cheney's bum buddy, indie-demo Senator Joe Lieberman, has done it again.
He nudged Cheney's chances of getting a war with Iran thanks to a resolution introduced by Lieberman and Republican Jon Kyl designating the Iranian military a "terrorist organization" responsible for killing US troops.
The resolution breezed through the senate 76-22. It was a toned down version of the original that was considered briefly yesterday. That one provided: "it should be the policy of the United States to combat, contain, and roll back the violent activities and destabilizing influence inside Iraq of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran, its foreign facilitators such as Lebanese Hezbollah, and its indigenous Iraqi proxies."
To demonstrate the power of electoral politics, Hillary Clinton voted for the resolution while conservative Republican senators Lugar and Hagel voted against.
