It's time to take the next step...

Reader comment on item: Hold Damascus Responsible [for Hezbollah Violence in Southern Lebanon]

Submitted by Rick House (United States), Aug 1, 2006 at 20:29

I agree, let's hold Syria responsible... let's hold Iran responsible... let's stop talking and act...

The United States has said repeatedly that it wanted Syria and Iran out of Iraq. -- for years!

The US has asked repeatedly that Syria and Iran stop their production of WMD. (Chemical in Syria and nuclear in Iran) --for years!

The US has asked Syria and Iran (less directly) to speak to Hezbollah about their incursions into Israel and their "terror" missile campaign in northern Israel. -- (not weeks) but for years!

The US has gained nothing with its rethoric. Our diplomacy has not changed a single MIddle Eastern position in 25 years. When are we going to get it? Diplomacy is not OUR answer to the problems of the region.

Let's have the war we've been trying to avoid. Let's declare war on Syria and Iran -- they are the axis of evil in the region.

It's the next step. We have all the evidence we need. (Syrian and Iranian agents captured in Iraq, importation of weapons into the war zone, manufacture of improvised explosive devises IEDs that killed our soldiers, harboring known terrorists, financial support for known terrorists, direct and indirect actions in the region that create turmoil and violence in the region, etc.)
