Sen. Lieberman: Yemen is 'tomorrow's war' if pre-emptive action not taken

By Jordan Fabian - 12/27/09 09:53 AM ET

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) Sunday said that Yemen could be the ground of America's next overseas war if Washington does not take preemptive action to root out al-Qaeda interests there.

Lieberman, who helms the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said on "Fox News Sunday" that the U.S. will have to take an active approach in Yemen after multiple recent terrorist attacks on the U.S. were linked back to the Middle Eastern nation.

The Connecticut senator said that an administration official told him that "Iraq was yesterday's war, Afghanistan is today's war. If we don't act preemptively, Yemen will be tomorrow's war."

Lieberman, who is known to be hawkish on security issues, said that Yemen needs to be a focal point because two recent attacks were linked back to a growing al-Qaeda presence there.

Ask him if him and his kids /

Ask him if him and his kids / family would serve a term in yemen.

If he says yes, send him over.

If he says no, call him a liar.

Lieberman needs to sign a limited job description contract

drafted by active voting Citizens (sovereigns) in his state. This would require him to list, on line, every bill he was to vote on, whether it was constitutional, and get his constituents approved/disapproved the bill. Also, any legislation he wanted to sponsor/co-sponsor would have to be listed, on line, with proof of its constitutionality and benefit to his constituents (masters); again, they would vote it up or down. His time in office would be spent in his district with travel to d.c. only for voting the will of the people (collective sovereignty) and fully transparent committee/sub-committee matters. This negates special interest manipulation of our public servants.

Hopefully we can get this guy out of office (as well as his partner Chrissy Dodd). These two are my senators!

Maybe Joe wants to volunteer to fight. Not likely!

Sic Peter Schiff on him!

This is a joke, right? Yemen is a pip-squeak mickey mouse country and couldn't beat even Pennsylvania* with its arm tied behind its back. When is America going to start acting like an adult?
