WE'LL HELP YOU CLOSE YOUR BORDERS, IF....:

Syria and Iran Willing to Help in Iraq (JIM KRANE, 12/06/06, ASSOCIATED PRESS)

Syria and Iran are willing to help stabilize Iraq, as the Iraq Study Group recommended Wednesday, but both countries will want something in return and neither has a magic solution to the chaos, Mideast officials and analysts said.

The Commission, not surprisingly, got this exactly backwards. Syria and Iran desperately need to stabilize the situation in Iraq, so it is we who should be making demands for concessions from them.

Yes, we need concessions and then some, Orrin. We've known for a long time both Iran and Syria have been fighting us within Iraq and we've done absolutely nothing about it. I thinks it's time we took a page out of David Warren's book and tell them if they keep doing this, we will do that. And then by God do it. There is absolutely nothing they can do in retalliation. Nothing.

Why are we sliding deeper and deeper into self-inflicted weakness?

Neither has contributed in any way that matters. The neocons need to believe they are.
