As an American I have called my elected officials over the last 4 years and given my opinion on the conflict this country is involved in.It is and has been frustrating to me to see the young men of my country become casualties because our administration felt it not a priority to secure the Syrian border. Our troops could set a DMZ on either side of them and safely administrate the comings and goings as well as minimizing the the flow that has promoted their danger.Un-necessary danger. Miss Rice, in another of todays articles, is purported to have told Israel not to have any contact with Syria for the purpose of negotiations. The war has produced a million Iraqi refugees in Syria.All Assad has to do is keep them impoverished and displaced to set the stage for their being the first suicidal wave into Israel.My country should be willing to first take a commanding presence on the Syrian border, to eliminate this vulnerability, before telling Israel not to be concerned.
