Hold Iran accountable

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

Submitted by James Garner (United States), Aug 5, 2006 at 16:44

Damascus accountable? Yes, but also Iran. After all, it is Iran that is attacking Israel through its proxy, the so-called party of God. Therefore, Iran`s oil infrastructure is a legitimate target for Israel, one that would even minimize civilian casualties. Without oil money Iran`s government would eventually fall.

This move would finesse the UN's unwillingness to impose sanctions. It would show that Israel too, not just OPEC, had an oil weapon.
