"The United States has accused Syria of doing too little to stop insurgents from infiltrating into Iraq to attack coalition forces. Syria denies the accusations but says it cannot fully control its long, porous border with Iraq
The United States accuses another country of DOING TO LITTLE to stop insurgents? What has our country done to stop illegal insurgents from entering OUR COUNTRY?
I don't approve of unlimited illegal immigration either. But there's a difference between coming into the U.S. to get a job and coming into Iraq to blow people up.
Yes, there's a big danger that terrorists may be among the other immigrants. But they haven't started blowing people up--at least not yet.
The more important consideration is that it was a bipartisan, patriotic consensus that "politics stops at the edge of the water." We were reminded of that not long ago when a few Republicans ventured to criticize clinton for bombing aspirin factories in order to take the spotlight off of Monica. But the Democrats completely ignore that rule, with the complicity of the MSM. Senator or not, kerry has no business interfering in delicate foreign policy and national security matters like this, without clearance from the President and/or the State Department.
