Check out how many times the Democrat here is quoted -- the Republican at the VERY SAME meeting is not quoted ONCE. NOT ONCE! I've done some bolding...
HUNTINGTON -- U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va., says the Defense Department is getting too jubilant in light of its success in Iraq and should re-think any thoughts of taking on Syria next.

Yeah, what liberal bias?
Though I didn't find it mentioned in the article, I'm willing to bet that "Rahall" is of Syrian descent - it is a common name in that region.
For example, the Indy racer Bobby Rahal is the son of an immigrant Syrian merchant. http://www.atlasf1.com/2001/mal/preview/okeefe.html
How many more times, and on HOW MANY MORE subjects & issues can they be WRONG about?

(You may disagree with what I have to say, but I will defend to your death my right to say it)
When it comes to Syria, Rahall is a fool, and Issa isn't much better than Helen Thomas. It is surprising that Americans of Syrian descent, all of whom know the reason behind the 19-20th Century Syrian diaspora, carry water for the Assad family. The Assad, an Alawite minority who retain power through the use of terror, is not quite, but damned near, as vicious as the Hussein in Iraq. Should the US military make a left turn and march through Damascus you would see a celebration the likes of which haven't been witnessed in the Middle East since Semiramis was around.

Rahall said the United States must try to settle the Israeli-Palestinian issue...
You can't solve the Israeli-Palestinian issue without solving the problem terrorist attacks throughout Israel.
You can't stop the terrorist attacks without stopping the flow of money, arms, and islamic militants from Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and other places into Israel.
The Israeli-Palestinian issue cannot be solved until the countries that are funding the violence decide it is in their best interest to cease supporting the terrorist activities.
The only way to convince them it is in their best interest is to threaten their regime. I don't believe we have to roll through the whole region. We took out Afghanistan and Iraq. If we take out one more country, perhaps Syria or Iran, the other countries might be more willing to cooperate.
