Lindsey "Bomb Bomb" Graham is just like John "BombBomb" McCain. Have nukes will travel.

Last week, Joe Lieberman was crushed when Gen. BetrayUs refused to embrace Lieberman's demand for war on Iran.

So did Lieberman show his respect for the Great General and give up? Absolutely not.

He called his warmongering Republican friends Jon Kyl (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Norm Coleman (R-MN), and persuaded them to co-sponsor an amendment to put the entire Senate on record demanding war with Iran.

Jonathan Schwarz has the exact language:

(3) that 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;

(4) to support the prudent and calibrated use of all instruments of United States national power in Iraq, including diplomatic, economic, intelligence, and military instruments, in support of the policy described in paragraph (3) with respect to the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran and its proxies.

Schwarz correctly adds:

If something like this passes both the House and Senate, I think Bush could legitimately argue that between it, the War Powers Act and the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations to Use Military Force, he has all the authority he needs to attack Iran.
