    Should the United States step in and try to stop the escalating conflict in the mideast?

    Not without provocation.

    What would you consider provocation? Israel is our ally not?

    I would say No. Diplomacy has failed, unfortunately, it is time for this to play out in war. If America is drawn in, and I think we will be, I believe we should go in guns blazing in support for Israel.

    Syria and/or Iran. Bio/chem weapons, I'm assuming no nukes. All would be reasons for entering.

    It appears that world opinion is that the US should try to get Israel to chill out. We're in the spotlight and I don't think either side here has any plans to lighten up.

    All due respect to you, world opinion sucks. I do not care what the other countries want at this point, it is time for someone to pay the piper.

    You know, I know what you're saying. But Israel didn't start this, remember? Hezbollah fired missiles into Israel. Would the U.S. lighten up if someone did that to us? Or would it blow the mothers out of the water?

    Don't get me wrong, this one is making me nervous... but maybe the "world" should stop funding terrorists and providing missiles to them that can then be used against innocents.

    Ive said for years how useless the UN really is. Just look at the evidence before us to their incompetence. They wouldnt be able to talk fat guy out of eating another big mac let alone talk the israelis and the muslims out of killing each other.

    Let them fight. It only makes it worse when you try to supress this anger. Let the war happen, let evil be destroyed and lets get on with life.

    I'm just stating facts here. I personally could care less about world opinion on this one too. We are EXPECTED to do something about this situation and the left is already accusing Bush of creating this incident by having a weak middle east policy. Is even an attempt at reeling in Israel DIPLOMATICALLY something in the best interst of the US or do we sit back and wait until things escalate to a point where there is no turning back?
