Iraq, Foreign Policy, and Betty

According to Betty McCollum, the American people are all in favor of allowing the Iranian and Syrian governments to have a say in the future of Iraq. Why would we ever want to do this?

The Iranians are in the process of uranium enrichment and are believed to be about to develop nuclear weapons. The president of Iran claims that there never was a holocaust where millions of Jews died. He also has stated that Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth. Do you think Iran should have a say in the future of Iraq?

The Syrians are a terrorist state that has, until recently, occupied Lebanon for many years. During this time there was, and still is to this day, persecution of Christians in Lebanon. I asked my neighbors what they think of the Syrian government. My neighbors, on both sides of me, are Catholic, Lebanese immigrants. They cringe at the thought of the Syrians having any say in the future of Iraq or the middle east. Is this what the American people really want?
