Joe: They'll Be Scratching Their Heads At This One

A minority of one is the true iconoclast. Joe Lieberman says Iraq has shown great progress and it would be a massive mistake to withdraw too soon. Here is the first para and read the rest here:

I have just returned from my fourth trip to Iraq in the past 17 months and can report real progress there. More work needs to be done, of course, but the Iraqi people are in reach of a watershed transformation from the primitive, killing tyranny of Saddam to modern, self-governing, self-securing nationhood--unless the great American military that has given them and us this unexpected opportunity is prematurely withdrawn.

Profiles In Courage? They may throw him out of the party!

And Joe, why should we stay?

It is a war between 27 million and 10,000; 27 million Iraqis who want to live lives of freedom, opportunity and prosperity and roughly 10,000 terrorists who are either Saddam revanchists, Iraqi Islamic extremists or al Qaeda foreign fighters who know their wretched causes will be set back if Iraq becomes free and modern. The terrorists are intent on stopping this by instigating a civil war to produce the chaos that will allow Iraq to replace Afghanistan as the base for their fanatical war-making. We are fighting on the side of the 27 million because the outcome of this war is critically important to the security and freedom of America. If the terrorists win, they will be emboldened to strike us directly again and to further undermine the growing stability and progress in the Middle East, which has long been a major American national and economic security priority.

So, it is a just cause and protects Americans by removing Iraq as a base of terrorist operations and, thus, from a direct strike on our continent. If he only read a book on economics, he would be my candidate in 2008.

Skip March adds:

Being a resident of Connecticut, I for one am very proud to have Joe Lieberman as one of my Senators...what a stand up guy! The Democratic Party's multiple positions on Iraq have now evolved into a "we tell the enemy our plan and trust the enemy to respond peacefully because our presence is the reason they are blowing up innocent people". Now that the Bush Administration has responded forcefully to Democratic lies about the President fabricating intelligence, they have to come up with some game plan. Miraculously, Dems have not gone so insane as to demand immediate withdrawal. However, the elevator does not go to the top floor with these guys when insisting that we have to go public with our war plan. And for Dems to claim that they ware taking the lead on having Iraqi's take over responsibility for their security is more fabrication on their part as this has always been part of the Bush plan.
