Bolton Warns Iran, Syria Over Iraqi Border
Reuters ^ | August 4, 2005 | Irwin Arieff

Posted on 08/04/2005 11:25:20 AM PDT by West Coast Conservative

U.S. Ambassador John Bolton, in his debut in the U.N. Security Council, pressed Syria and Iran on Thursday to do more to stem the flow of terrorists, arms and funding into neighboring Iraq.

His comments came as the 15-nation council unanimously adopted a U.S.-drafted resolution condemning a recent surge in violence in Iraq that has killed hundreds, including Algerian diplomats, U.S. Marines and a Sunni Arab helping to draft a new Iraqi constitution.

Russia used the vote to criticize the media for glorifying terrorists after Moscow said it would bar ABC News from working in Russia when the U.S. television network aired an interview with Chechen rebel leader Shamil Basayev.

Bolton urged all nations "to meet their obligations to stop the flow of terrorist financing and weapons, and particularly on Iran and Syria."

"We think this is very important, obviously, to help bring stability and security to the people of Iraq and to permit the constitutional process to go forward. It's the highest priority for the people and government of Iraq, and for the United States as well," he said, speaking after the council vote.

Perhaps we could have gotten tougher with them six months ago and saved more of our troops were it not for Dem stonewalling.

Thanks again, DEMS, for your obstructionism! We need a catchy phrase, like "Bush Lied. People Died."

How about, "Dems Delayed. People Daid." ;)

This is a half measure at best. What about the Saudis--Hello? Why does this administration refuse to include Saudi Arabia when talk of state sponsored terrorism is on the table. I see Mr. tough talking Bolton is continuing this administrations policy of ignoring Saudi participation against the US in the War on Terror. The UN continues to be useless. Shut it down now!

Let him run the INS at the same time, and he might have a chance.

He co-signed a letter excluding the biggest supplier of insurgents in the Middle East and everyone is all giddy? That's exactly why the Syrians and Iranians don't take our threats seriously. They can point to the Saudis and say you've caught or killed over a thousand Saudi citizens in Iraq yet you leave them off of your letter.
