"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 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. We've said so publicly that the Iranians have a base in Iran at which they are training Iraqis who are coming in and killing Americans. By some estimates, they have killed as many as 200 American soldiers. Well, we can tell them we want them to stop that. But if there's any hope of the Iranians living according to the international rule of law and stopping, for instance, their nuclear weapons development, we can't just talk to them. If they don't play by the rules, we've got to use our force, and to me, that would include taking military action to stop them from doing what they're doing. They can't believe that they have immunity for training and equipping people to come in and kill Americans. We cannot let them get away with it. If we do, they'll take that as a sign of weakness on our part and we will pay for it in Iraq and throughout the region and ultimately right here at home."
I hear what you're saying Joe! I know it's going to be hard for you to believe... Hell! It's hard for me to believe, but I actually agree with a Democrat... Oh that's right, he's not a Democrat anymore, he's an independent. Thank goodness, I thought I had gone mad there for a second.
