    et al,

    This will be interesting to see how this works.

    While the US was there and targeted, since 2004, Iraq was under its own sovereignty. The US is certainly a victim, but the offense was committed in Iraq.

    I say put the clown in Guantanemo, I don't give a damn if he is Hezbollah and most of Guantanemo is Al Qaeda and they don't like each other, if we try this case in court he may walk, and if we just leave him with the Iraqis they will more than likely set him loose as well.

    freedombecki, High_Gravity, et al,

    We need to think about this carefully!

    (COMMENT)

    There are a number of options that we could consider.

    But the thing we have to pick-up on is that Hezbollah is a power in some key states in the Middle East --- that needs to be recognized as a formidable opponent; especially in the weaken state of our political-military arm.

    We don't need to aggravate the hostile if we have no intention of suppressing them into oblivion; the death rattle. If we are not willing to do that, then we should consider other options.

    Otherwise, what starts out as a very minor issue, easily resolved, turns into the catalyst for an event (a hostile reprisal in terrorist form) that will push us (a reactionary counter strike) into another Middle East conflict for which we cannot win.

    We are not a Super Power any more. And we don't have a 16 Division Army or an Air Force with an unlimited number of available flying hours. It is not the Army of WWII or Vietnam; and don't have the strength in our economy to build up what we've already spent in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Most Respectfully,
    R

    What do you suggest we do, just set him loose?

    He gets a trial?

    And, the American gets summary execution.

    I have to disagree with you there, sure the US military doesn't have the size it used to in the pas but being a super power isn't just about the size of your military, the US is still looked upon in the Gulf States as their protector for the most part, the US will still play a big hand in the region even with all the cut backs, and just cutting this guy loose sends a bad message.
