Ditto to that
lol! I'm glad I checked the link. I was ready to scream if I heard anymore about "peacekeepers." ;)
We however need to quit playing games with Iran.
Iran is obviously funding and arming these groups.
Does anyone believe that it's merely a coincidence that this flares up right when Iran is getting drug before the UN Security Council over their nuclear weapons program?
Iran is waging war on Israel through intermediaries and they aren't even hiding it, yet we do little to nothing about it.
Have we learned nothing from the past?
It's time for Bush to state the obvious. Iran is and has been supporting terrorists in criminal acts against civilians. They are arming and funding terrorists. The are arming, funding, and directing those who are carrying out acts against Israel which an ally of the United States.
This can not be tolerated.
Then Bush as commander in chief should order but not necessarily announce, an very noticeable increase in troops in the area. Shift people from Europe and elsewhere. Maybe shift the path of a carrier group so it starts heading closer to Iran.
If the EU makes a fuss, shift even more of our soldiers out of their countries so they lose their protection as well as their contribution to their economies.
Tell them if the want to diffuse the situation they better do everything they possibly can to stop Iran from funding terrorism, give up their nuclear program, and stop calling for the destruction of Israel.
The them to prove that they are not useless or to go away and shut up.
