Iran to Lebanon

Reader comment on item: "Death to America"

Submitted by Daniel Middleman (United States), Sep 9, 2002 at 22:55

I think it's rather simplistic to assume that firing on the students in Iran would have averted the situation we are in now. I do believe they should have fired of course. And I think it is an outrage, that to this day, since the bombing that killed so many in Lebanon, that we still have men using unloaded guns.

Just another example of how weak we truly are.

No, I don't think it would have changed anything. This is a war of cultures. Nothing will change that. Nothing short of total victory or total defeat.
