1. The giant is finally awake.
DR ,   florida, USA   (01.26.07)
Hizballah is in deep s_it now. Iran can no longer hide the fact that they sponsor, arm and fund terror. this is a known fact now. hopefully this will send a clear messege to Iran and other nations that terror will not be tolerated and will be exterminated. And to people who support iran's regime and blame everything on Israel and the US...F_ck off!!!
2. Finally!
Neal ,   NJ,USA   (01.26.07)
In order to succeed in the war on terror, Bush knows Iran must be defeated. Plenty of payback coming to Iran. The Iranians are behind many of the deaths to Americans in Iraq and elsewhere. Time has come and Bush has it right.
3. Restraining and Containing Iran
Yuhanna Alqarmidi ,   CA, USA   (01.26.07)

6. let's hope
another Lebanese ,   Lebanon   (01.26.07)
this doesnt flop like the last attempt by Israel to take on hizbala, instead of turning back Olmert the clown should have finished the job and not give fatso Nasralla a divine victory!
7. Idiot!
Elie ,   Lebanon   (01.26.07)
He is defenetily IDIOT! Hope democrats will save the decline of america
8. US need to bomb Iran in Iran, not just Iraq
jw ,   ny   (01.26.07)
Containing Iranian provacitive influence in Iran is not to take it to the head of the snake right in Iran itself - bomb the terrorist training camps in Iran for a start. In fact, Iran's nucleur facilities should have been bombed yesterday. Lord help the entire world once Iran and it's proxies can blackmail us w/ their nucleur weapons. Still, credit to Bush for defying the Dems.
9. #7 , decline of America???
AJ ,   GA,USA   (01.27.07)
#7 , decline of America??? Wake up, open your blind eyes...Have you noticed what the Hizbo's have done to Lebanon?? You should be thanking your lucky stars that at least from the outside, the world sees whats going on in your country...America is doing what it has always done, defending itself and saving some other countries ass, even if undeserving at times....Way to go Bush!! Keep on kickin azz, send the message loud and clear that we will not put up with this terrorist BS!
10. Who's zooming who?
Persian CAT   (01.27.07)
Is GW leading us to believe that there have been no covert ops against Iran and the Hezb until now. Iranina agent and the Hezb have been roaming around with complete immunity!!! If you beIieve this, then I'd like to offer a charming ski chalet in downtown Haifa tp you to buy. If you think his "authorization" is going to bring Iran and the Hezb to their knees, you must be high on too many flafels. The real reason is Israelis are so hysterical about Iran and he's sticking pacifiers in your big mouths, that's all.
11. 6 and 7
Libneniyyeh ,   Lebanon   (01.27.07)
Shame on you both. Instead of uniting us to solve our own problems you invite the state that just about destroyed Lebanon to have another go.

Terrorist terrorist terrorist terrorist. Bomb the terrorist, carpet bomb the country, nuke the bastards, stifle them, push them away as far as possible. So easy to talk from NY isn't it, the city with one of the highest crime rates in the world. Who are the criminals? Those who propagate and solidify gaps between classes, races, ethnicites, religions, peoples, cultures. Those who (from a distance) dreamily envision how to launch attacks on remote countries that they have no conception of. Those who SELL the worst weapons conceivable to people too ignorant to know better. Those corrupt leaders who sell their countries for seats, for money, for power. Those whose soldiers beat and rape women. Those who willingly send their sons to fight in wars that are not there's, filling their hearts with hatred so all they want is to go out and kick asses. Who are the criminals? Those who propagate the same images over and over again. Those who distort facts and silence the truth. What do you really see in your safe little segragated world?
13. UN RESOLUTION 1701 BETRAYED Israel, LEBANON & Free World
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (01.27.07)
During the second Lebanon war under intense U.S. pressure, Israel's weak leaders to the horror of the Free World's people, agreed to UN resolution 1701 that prevented the goal vital to Israel's security - eliminating the rocket threat from Lebanon. UN Resolution 1701 successfully prevented Israel from defeating Iran's terrorist army Hezbollah thus aiding and empowering Hezbollah who now threaten to take over Lebanon.
14. Iraqi Christians Told: LEAVE Or Have Your HEADS CUT OFF
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (01.27.07) 'Leave, crusaders, or have your heads cut off' By Aqeel Hussein in Mosul and Colin Freeman, Sunday Telegraph 24/12/2006 The snow has already settled on the mountains further north, but the Christians of the Iraqi city of Mosul are scared to put festive decorations outside their homes this year. Their ancestors settled here in the 1st century AD, yet as teacher Jamal Fadi has discovered, some of their Muslim neighbours want this Christmas to be their last. "A letter was delivered to my door with two bullets placed on top of it," said Mr Fadi, 32, standing watchfully in the neat garden of his two-storey villa. "It said: 'Leave, crusaders, or we will cut your heads off.' They want us to go from Mosul completely."... "Our children are told by other pupils that they are 'f***ing spies' who have brought the Christian occupation to Iraq," said Father Shamoun Butris, a Christian minister in Mosul. "It is not true, but makes no -difference." ...Yet the more hard-line clerics make clear that they no longer see Christians as part of Mosul's future. "We want an Islamic society, and the Christians should leave because they follow the occupiers' religion," said Saad al Jibouri, from the Sunni Al Rahma mosque... ...Firaz Adis, 51, who will pass this Christmas without his son Ricot, kidnapped from Mosul University four months ago. "I paid a ransom of $10,000 but they killed my son anyway," he sobbed. "They said 'This will keep happening as long as you are agents of the occupiers'. I ask all the Christians in the world: 'Please help us'."
15. Iran is the head of the poisnious snake,
jerome ,   basalt, co   (01.27.07)
it has to be cut off! Bush went into the wrong counrty on the premise of weapons of mass destruction. It's not to late to make the correct decision and go after Iranians nukes. It will be more complicated and difficult, but I hope the troop surge in Iraq is to help rid Iran of the NUT CASE MULLAHS!!!
16. Saudi radical Islamists no better than Iranian ShiaMullahs!
KMR ,   Middle East   (01.27.07)
17. Saudi radical Islamists no better than Iranian ShiaMullahs!
KMR ,   Middle East   (01.27.07)
Both of them are evil hence deserve "New policy of authorization" to contain them. Don't forget, majority of 9/11 attackers are Saudis.
18. Distinctions Between Terrorists?
Adina Kutnicki ,   US   (01.27.07)
Well, well. One can only hope that Bush wakes up and also smells the terror tentacles of Abbas and his Fatah Militia. Repeat after me - there are NO differences between terrorists. There are NOT good terrorists and bad terrorists. Hence, Fatah, Force 17, Al Aqsa et al are all like Hamas. Same goals, different strategies.
19. Iran
Bob ,   USA   (01.27.07)
It only takes one shot to take out fatso in Lebanon and one more shot to take out the holocaust denier in Iran while on one of his worldwind excursions. It's time to take action!!
20. #5 -- Lebanese
Major ,   Florida, USA   (01.27.07)
If that's supposed to be a vote of confidence for Hizbullah, you will be very unpleasantly surprised!
21. Random Probablity
713 ,   Seattle US   (01.27.07)
the random probablity states that eventually everything will happen. There is even a random probablity that Bush will be right... Well that time is now.... sorry Iranians.... I protested against Bush every year he was president. So it means a lot when I say I agree with him on this. I am not DEM or REP, but I judge the situation and act appropriatly. In a cold war Iran will fall. If we go straight after them, in an Iraq style war, we will loose. Going after their proxies is our best choice. They will pump so much money into these proxies, in hope they succeed, Iran will go bankrupt, the regieme will be overthrown.
22. BRING IT ON!!!!!
Casey ,   Germany   (01.27.07)
American way of saying....."Stop , asking are either with us or terrist".....Americans force people to be their slaves but IRAN is the only country who doesn't want to be slave of America. so Now Mr. Bush want that revenge...First he supported Saddam Hussain and now he had excutued him.....Mr. America we are not sleeping anyomre, BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!
23. to 6, I'm with you!!!
tom ,   Israel   (01.27.07)
I know that in the next two years, I will have another round against hizbullah, honestly as infantry reservist - military can't wipe off terror organinzation but it can hit more effectively,than we did in summer. as you know we are in crisis now but we will undergo it anyway, the jews never give up on their right to live in the state of Israel, and god won't leave the 'people of the book'. I'm upset that I can't visit in your country , I think you are hostage of all the troubles in midest, everyone want your beatifull country: Iran, syria and even my last stupid premiers, I hope some day our countries will sign on peace agreement, for now good luck to your goverment and keep youself back.
24. refer #13
salleh ,   malaysia   (01.27.07)
you are so naieve. wasn't the israeli who started the war to relieve the captured soldier who had misadventure into lebanon. israel should be thankful that the un resolution 1704 had saved it from defeat.(go and read ynets comments on israeli's incompetent generals) the opportunist us would not have agreed and would have vetoed that resolution if israel, its stooge was winning the war. wake up israel! without the us you are nothing - (so don't blame hisbullah if it is getting help from iran) even with us help israel could not win the war. so stop being real. make peace don't be conceited like the us president who has the mistaken believe that his mission is godsend.
25. Now, Israel needs to get a set of cojones too
Rachel ,   Tel Aviv   (01.27.07)
26. US Killing Machine
KIlling Machine ,   UK   (01.27.07)
The old US-Killing Machine is living the dream in finding more to kill, hooray! Someday the US will have more weapons than people to kill.
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (01.27.07)
DR, you seem to be overjoyed on press announcement.I can know more of your thinking.Dear DR, matters are not as simple as they may sound with these press announcements.Bush is on the final journey........he does not want to leave the office without having achieved at least something for people to remember him.However, gather all these articles and keep them ready.Let us witness the practicality of what is being said.Don't use abusive words in your talk-back.Decent people despise it.Amongst them,your friends as well.

30. Perfidy
Joseph Kaufman ,   Sunnyvale/Jerusalem   (01.27.07)
Olmert/Peretz are responsible for the most despicable perfidy against the jewish people and Israel, hiding behind idiocy, ineptitude, and political opportunism. Here, Israel's deterent capacity is mortally wounded by the agreements with the UN and Hizbullah. I agree with Linda Riveria, but I hold the perfidy of the Olmert/Peretz administration responsible for the outcome. Why are those slimebags still allowed to run rampant in government. Why haven't the jewish people recalled or impeached Olmert and Peretz?
