SOMEONE WANT TO GRAB THAT BIT OF MR. CHIRAC'S SKULL...:

G8 Mideast statement targets Iran, Syria: US (AFP, 7/16/06)

The United States said that a Group of Eight statement on the Middle East crisis implicitly targets Syria and Iran as backers of extremists who attack Israel, even though it does not name them.

A G8 statement on the Middle East crisis warned that "extremist elements and those that support them cannot be allowed to plunge the Middle East into chaos and provoke a wider conflict."

"'Those that support them' are clearly understood to be Syria and Iran, who have long been backers and funders of both Hezbollah and Hamas," the US State Department's number three, Nick Burns told reporters on a conference call, referring respectively to the Lebanese Shiite movement and Palestinian radical group.

Some days I am frustated that Bush is not making better use of those captured Iraqi intelligence documents. Then something like this happens. Makes me go hmmmm.

"extremist elements and those that support them cannot be allowed to plunge the Middle East into chaos and provoke a wider conflict." "Iran cannot be allowed to have nuclear weapons." Response: So?
