Moving On To Syria In The Endless War

Reported by Deborah - October 22, 2005

The FOX News favorite war guys, Bill Cowan and David Hunt, joined John Kasich on Heartland to promote military action against Syria and give their opinions on the current situation in Afganistan. Their comments about Afganistan proved to be the most interesting part of the segment. 10/22/05

Cowan claimed that some sort of military action was needed in Syria suggesting precision guided bombs or some sort of covert action just to remind them. Hunt thought we should "drop a couple bombs" and line up an air craft carrier adding they've been killing our guys for 2 years and "it's payback time."

When Kasich asked what they thought about turning the problem over to the UN, Hunt was not receptive to the idea.
He told Kasich that the UN is very good with refugee relief issues but "the rest should be flushed down the toilet."

Kasich turning to Afganistan asked them about the recent reports of bodies being burned by our soldiers. Cowan tried to create a possibility of doubt in the report saying that maybe the bodies were "stinking". He added that the story is out there in the Muslim world and that's bad and thought the" soldiers should have known better" since there was a media team present. comment: In other words, its okay but they shouldn't have been caught.

Hunt complained that we lost focus in Afganistan revealing that we used the drug dealers and now there's a big drug problem. He added that the Taliban is coming back and NATO is coming in and will be faced with problems.

comment: So now that we completely messed up in Afganistan and Iraq, we should have confidence that attacking Syria is the right thing to do. Maybe that 39% who still support Bush will go for it but the rest of us aren't buying it.
