Reader comment on item: After Saddam? Remaking the Mideast

Submitted by John Hampe (United States), Feb 11, 2003 at 10:55

One area that hasn't received much notice is Lebanon. After Saddam is gone , it should be a priority of the U.S. to eliminate Syrian and Iranian influence from this situation, and establish a democratic goverrnment. This would be an obvious benefit to the overall Middle East situation, and also a great help in the "War on Terror". If done with the proper will and determination, this would not be that difficult. Forget about international opinion and just do it. Turkey from the north, Israel from the South, the U.S. from the sea and through Damascus!
