Well, not now. Soon. Very soon. We cannot succeed in Iraq with the Baathists in Syria and the mullahs in Iran. We need to take action against these two terrorist sponsors soon. Bush must start talking about these states... beating the drums, if you will. Take this quote for example: "Iraq is not the war. And the war is a regional war; and we cannot be successful in Iraq if we only do Iraq alone. And I think that the terror countries bordering Iraqnamely, Iran and Syriaknow that. I think that Saddam's plan was to disappear into Syria, as Osama bin Laden disappeared into Iran ... in the middle of the Afghan war. I think that the Iranians and the Syrians fully intend to do everything in their power to destabilize our efforts in Iraq once the war is over and once we're in stable positions on the ground." That was Michael Ledeen, a think tanker of Richard Perle. He was wrong about Saddam going to Syria but he's right that they are trying to destabilize our efforts. Syria and Iran are at war with us. They are at war with us in Iraq. We need to take action against both states... one right after the other. Iran - Funding al-Sadr - Has WMD - Has nuclear program - Funds Hezbollah - Funds Hamas - Funds Islamic Jihad - Dictatorship - Is giving shelter to al-Qaeda (Said al-Adel) Syria - Probably has WMD - Funds Hezbollah - Funds Hamas - Funds Islamic Jihad - Dictatorship The next time there's a major terrorist attack in Iraq by a Syrian or Iranian backed terrorist, we must take action against them immediantly. To succeed in Iraq. Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan would be four democratic regimes all in a row.
