The Difference Between "Anti-War" and "Anti-Iraq War"

Over at The Washington Note, Steve Clemons offers some needed clarity amid the furor surrounding Joe Lieberman's support of the Iraq debacle:
Going after bin Laden and toppling the al Qaeda-harboring Taliban made sense and could have furthered American interests. Expanding this legitimate fight into the invasion of Iraq and a broader crusade in the Middle East has punctured the mystique of American power in the world and harmed America's security.
Opposing Lieberman has nothing to do with being "anti-war", it has everything to do with being "anti-Iraq War" and trying to prevent the same kind of dangerous calculus from being followed in the future. If Lieberman helps empower thinking so potentially dangerous to American national security interests, he should be purged from the party.

On Al's radio show I said that it was not so much about being anti-war, but being pro-common sense.
