An Idea Whose Time Has Come?

Iran is supplying weapons to Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns told reporters today.

This comes on top of clear evidence that Iran is furnishing support to terrorists in Iraq via training, IEDs, etc in order to disrupt and kill U.S. and coalition military forces.

Senator Joe Lieberman and Senator John McCain have both suggested bombing Iranian bases that are actively aiding our enemies.

On Sunday, Mr. Lieberman told Bob Schieffer on Face the Nation, "I think we've got to be prepared to take aggressive military action against the Iranians to stop them from killing Americans in Iraq. And to me, that would include a strike into... over the border into Iran, where we have good evidence that they have a base at which they are training these people coming back into Iraq to kill our soldiers."

Mr. Lieberman said that he was not calling for an invasion of Iran, but did say we should target specific training camps.

Is this an idea whose idea whose time has come?
