Taking on Iran and Syria
The media is quite worked up about President Bush's plan to increase troop levels in Iraq. However, a more important point made in his speech last night has received less attention: the US will crack down on Iran and Syria for their involvement in fueling the insurgency. President Bush stated that "we'll interrupt the flow of support from Iran and Syria. And we will seek out and destroy the networks providing advanced weaponry and training to our enemies in Iraq." Iran and Syria are aiding both Sunni and Shiite militias that are killing our troops and innocent Iraqis. Last night, US troops raided an Iranian consulate in northern Iraq, detaining several people. Let's hope this is only the beginning of a much needed response to these acts of war against the United States.
