You’re Living in a World of Make-believe. With Flowers and Bells and Leprechauns. And Magic Frogs With Funny Little Hats…

You know, if Sen. Joe Lieberman, Joe-Conn., wasn’t such a sanctimonious jerk I’d almost feel sorry for him for getting smacked down this hard:

COOPER: Michael, I want to play something that Senator Lieberman said about the war in Iraq. Let’s — let’s listen.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SEN. JOSEPH LIEBERMAN (D), CONNECTICUT: The war is not lost in Iraq. In fact, now American Iraqi security forces are winning. The enemy is on the run in Iraq. But, here in — in Congress, in Washington, we seem to be, or some — some members seem to be on the run, chased, I fear, by public opinion polls.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

COOPER: Is the enemy on the run in Iraq, Michael?

WARE: No, certainly not. And I think we need to be aware that it’s enemies. I mean, America doesn’t face just one opponent in this country, but a whole multitude, many of whom are becoming stronger, the longer the U.S. occupation here, or presence here, in Iraq continues. So, unfortunately, I’m afraid that Senator Lieberman has taken an excursion into fantasy. (emphasis added)

Asked for comment, Lieberman said, “Frodo says all is well in Iraq, and I believe him!”

    Jesus’s General had this link to the Independent.

    http://news.independent.co.uk/world/americas/article2758829.ece

    I won’t even try to summarize these statements by American soldiers.

    If that article in The Nation gets widespread publicity, and also is viewed as credible, it will be this war’s version of “the Pentagon papers” from the Vietnam War.

    If all true, sooner or later (later would mean in analyses by historians) the question will arise as to whether the crimes committed are sufficiently systematic and severe to justify our treating Shrub & Cheney like Slobodan Milosevic.

    “…treating Shrub and Cheney like Slobadan Milosevic. …”

    I have always believed the ‘Musolini Solution’ was so graphically effective, in that kind of, “message sent” sort of way, hard to beat the Italians for style ..but hey, I’m old school ….

    It’s always been difficult to beat the Italians when it comes to style! 😉
