Reader comment on item: Forget Syria, Target Iran

Submitted by john w. mcginley (United States), Sep 9, 2013 at 09:46

I certainly agree that Iran is the lynchpin in this who imbroglio. Assad must go even if it means the Al Quaeda and Its affiliates set up house on the soil of what is now called "Syria." Israel and the USA can deal with such. And the overthrowing of Assad will have the effect of escalating the hatred between the Sunni and Shia wings of Islam. Plus it would give Putin a black-eye. He deserves it.

Israel should plan to eliminate the Iranian nuclear threat without the help of the USA. Sharing top secret material with the Obama Administration would be suicidal for Israel.
