Syria's leader doesn't have integrity and will use any guise to make it appear that it is everyone else's fault but his own. He has learned from many other leaders in memoriam that have violated the rules of honesty and integrity. To fault the Israeli's that are surrounded by countries and nations that have always been against Israel. Israel has people within that undermine their efforts to maintain peace and tranquility since 1947. The threats from outside have always been there in their crossroads of the west in the middle-east. Hezbollah has always had Israel on their radar and scope.

We can go to bed at night without the kind of fear and trepidation that they have everyday. The tensions are always spiked in Israel but Syria is trying to get the rebels to join the government against Israel's attacks on their territory. The rebels and the people of Syria have been under attack from the Syrian military and leaders for over two years. The Lebanon border with those types of missiles would be a big threat to Israel. Our government has not dealt with Israel's concerns in 5 years. Too little, too late.

I think what we should do is send more troops to the Middle East to get in the middle of religious ideological wars. Not enough have died yet.

George--why do you dwell on the past? It serves no purpose.

@worf
Not dwelling on the past just illustrating the point this is not a new or simple issue as JWB pretended until asked for any type of solution that has not been tried and failed repeatedly. Maybe you would care to take a stab at it since JWB seems at a loss for words. What exactly should Obama have done differently or do now that has not been tired before and/or not currently being tried? It’s easy to take baseless shots from the cheap seats harder to actually find solutions.

George--How has Obama reacted to Benghazi, guns to Mexican cartels, or getting out of Afghanistan? We've been there over ten years.

As for Syria. Making threats he doesn't know how to keep is not very smart. Spending more time on the golf course then staff meetings is not good either.
