The Lieberman/Kyle amendment has passed in the Senate. Essentially, the amendment would authorize "the prudent calibrated use of all instruments of United States national power in Iraq, including diplomatic, economic, intelligence and military instruments". In other words, it is a call for war against Iran.

Hello? What have Senators Kyle and Lieberman been smoking? Ain't nothing kosher. Let's look at some pertinent realities before America rushes off to yet another disastrous war:

The military is overextended in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The American credit and housing markets have gone flop belly up.

America imports most of its food.

The United States manufacturing base is gone.

American domestic infrastructures, bridges , roads, schools, and sewers, are shaky.

Now is not the time for more war talk in the United States. It is necessary to have a domestic policy that focuses on America's problems to place the country on firmer economic ground.
