Golden Opportunity missed!

Reader comment on item: A Neo-Conservative's Caution

Submitted by vincent villano (United States), Mar 9, 2005 at 16:14

Yesterday's gathering of 500,000 members of Hizbollah, and their supporters, all in one place, was a golden opportunity to rid the world of these vermin, forever. Three or four MOAB's dropped on the gathering would have eliminated a known terrorist group (murderers of more Americans, than any other terrorist group, save Al qaeda). ... It would have also exacted a measure of revenge for the Marine barracks bombing, years ago. What in the "Sam Hill" is GW doing? He comes up with "Bush Doctrine", declares a "War on Terror", then loses his nerve when it's time to implement real action, even if we are not risking one American life. The blood of the Americans killed in the next Hizbollah attack will be on his hands.
