Bush calls for sealing of Syria's borders


(Gold9472: If Syria and Iran are responsible for the Israeli/Lebanon war, then why is Seymour Hersch (http://www.yourbbsucks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12006) reporting that both the U.S. and Israel planned for this war, and why is the media reporting that it was, in fact, Israel who kidnapped (http://www.yourbbsucks.com/forum/showpost.php?p=66874&postcount=3) two individuals the day before Hezbollah "kidnapped" two uniformed soldiers in retaliation?)

United States President George W. Bush late yesterday reiterated earlier statements that he believes Iran and Syria are responsible for the conflict between Hezbollah and Israel, before calling for the sealing of Syria's borders, RAW STORY has learned.

In a joint appearance with Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Bush stated that the administration is now operating a war on terror on three fronts: Iraq, Afghanistan and Lebanon. The president is hopeful that a UN Security Council resolution, calling for international troops to help the Lebanese central government gain control of Hezbollah-dominated areas, will take this over on this new "front".

"We must help people in both Lebanon and Israel return to their homes and begin rebuilding their lives," Bush told reporters, "without fear of renewed violence and terror."

Bush put the blame for the violence first on Hezbollah. "Hezbollah attacked Israel, Hezbollah started the crisis," he said, "and Hezbollah suffered a defeat in this crisis."

However, Bush also made the case that Hezbollah has been armed by Iran, with weapons passing through Syria, telling the press: "I know they claim they didn't have anything to do with it, but sophisticated weaponry ended up in the hands of Hezbollah fighters, and many assume and many believe that that weaponry came from Iran through Syria."

The United States and ally nations plan to call for UN troops to seal off the Syrian borders soon after the Hezbollah resolution is considered.
