In yet another sign that for all of his tough talk, Bush just isn't serious about protecting Americans from terrorists, Bush has done nothing, absolutely nothing, about the Damascus airport serving as a major transit point for terrorists flowing into Iraq...

Why hasn't the airport been shut down? Why haven't our bombers cratered its runways? Jeez, the Bush Administration hasn't even taken the minimal steps, such as pressuring non-US airlines to stay away, that Joe Lieberman called for taking in an op-ed in today's WSJ.

What ever happened to 'you're with us, or you're against us'? What ever happened to his pledge to strike anywhere and everywhere against terrorists? What ever happened to Bush's pledge to do everything in his power to protect us?

How can Bush be so clueless? Does he not realize that these terrorists are a HUGE obstacle to Iraq turning into the democratic beacon of hope that Bush dreams of? Doesn't Bush realize that these terrorists are a MAJOR contributor to the violence in Iraq? Doesn't Bush realize that these terrorists are flowing into Iraq with the goal of killing Americans? How many American soldiers and Marines have to die and be wounded because Bush can't bring himself to do what is necessary to protect us? Doesn't he realize that closing down the Damascus airport would make it a whole lot harder for these terrorists to get into Iraq?

Even though he took a lot of heat for doing so, Nixon was right to go after the North Vietnamese supply lines in Laos and Cambodia. Both those countries lost their right to protest against our incursion when they failed to take action themselves against the NVA use of their territory as staging and transit lanes for funneling men and material into South Vietnam.

Bush needs to do the same thing with regards to Syria. Syria is allowing its territory to be used by terrorists heading into Iraq. Bush needs to do everything possible to keep that from happening. Unfortunately, he has done nothing. Nothing. Nothing.

God, I can't wait until he is out of office.
