"Bush cited the role of Iran and Syria in providing help to Hezbollah. `Their actions..stand in the way of resolving the current crisis and bringing lasting peace to this troubled region`," - Haaretz The basic American error is in viewing Hamas and Hizballah as members of "international terror" to be fought to the bitter end. They are local organizations, acting on local grievances. Since Syria and Iran support them, they are also to be given nothing, and fought if possible. How does Dumbya expect to bring "lasting peace" if Syria is still acting to get the Golan back? Bush knows it will have to be given back, except not to this "supporter of terror" regime. Quite dumb. If they have the Golan, they don`t need to support terror.. The US can accept destroying Lebanon as part of their painful democratization process. (Happened in Iraq!) But the whole Iraq concept was foolish. Just use normal evolution. Israel negotiates peace with Syria, Hizballa dies, Lebanon becomes democratic.
