Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid rejected on Monday another prominent
senator's call for a military strike against Iran, saying a U.S. attack would
destabilize the Middle East.Sen. Joseph Lieberman, an independent from
Connecticut and chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, said over the
weekend the United States should be prepared to use military force to stop Iran
from training and equipping Iraqi militants blamed for the deaths of U.S. troops
"The invasion of (Iran) is only going to destabilize that part of the
world more," Reid said on Monday after speaking at a forum hosted by the Center
for American Progress think tank.
He just don't get it. The Middle East is already "destabilized". Almost every country over there is having problems with war and terrorism. They have been for a long time, even before Bush came along. The time to act is now. We cannot afford to wait until Iran develops nuclear weapons. I don't think they have them yet. I believe if they had them they would have used one by now. We must stop them from developing one.
We are fighting Iranian insurgents in Iraq. Iran is training, supporting, and supplying them. That alone is reason enough to attack them. Add to that the threat of a nuclear program, and there is no question what we should do.
