While all eyes are turned on Columbia

Zombies everywhere are up in arms about Columbia Unversity allowing Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a public platform to speak in the U.S. It was even the topic of conversation today on the Spud McConnell show (the callers seemed even more stupid than usual or maybe I was just in a snottier mood than usual).

Meanwhile....our old, warmongering buddy, Joe Lieberman, filed an amendment to the 2008 Defense Authorization Bill making it official U.S. policy to "combat, contain and roll back" Iran....Section 5 calls for the United States to formally designate the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization.

That means we can bomb the shit out of them without an official proclamation of war and subsequent congressional approval. In other words...they're slipping this proviso through under the semantics of "Terrorists" instead of defining national entities. That's pretty convenient, huh? Call anyone or anything a terrorist and you can bomb them to billy hell.
