Sen. Lugar: US Troops May Have to Go After Hamas

U.S. Troops May Have to Go After Hamas, Lawmaker
Sun June 15, 2003 10:35 AM ET

By Lori Santos
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A leading Republican lawmaker said on Sunday U.S. forces may have to help "root out terrorism" in the Middle East conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, including taking aim at Hamas.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," Sen. Richard Lugar, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said American forces might be part of an international force to help stop attacks by Hamas, the main group behind a campaign of suicide bombings against Israelis, and other groups.

Hamas has said it would reject any peace deal between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

Lugar said such a force could be used to quell Israeli and Palestinian disputes, "and, maybe even more important, to root out the terrorism that is at the heart of the problem."

Asked if that meant such troops would go after Hamas or other groups, he said, "That may be the conclusion."

"...It may not be just Hamas but clearly Hamas is right in the gunsights," he added.

"DON'T UNDERESTIMATE PRESIDENT BUSH"

"...The terrorist aspect really has to be dealt with and that's why I say don't underestimate President Bush," Lugar said.

Lugar is headed to the region next week and said he, as well as top U.S. officials, would be there seeking to halt the cycle of violence that is jeopardizing the U.S.-backed peace "road map."

The United States has appealed for restraint from both sides after a week of bloodshed in which more than 50 people were killed.

Last week's violence included the killing of four soldiers in the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian suicide bombing on a Jerusalem bus and seven Israeli helicopter strikes on militants, including an attempt to assassinate a Hamas leader.

Bush has sent the veteran diplomat John Wolf to the region to prevent the failure of the peace plan affirmed at a June 4 summit in Aqaba, Jordan, with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas.

Lugar said Secretary of State Colin Powell also would be free after meetings in Jordan next Sunday.

UNILATERAL ACTION?

Whether to insert forces into the volatile situation is being considered, including "whether they are to be all by themselves" or in conjunction with a United Nations or NATO force, he said.

"That is always a possibility but having said that, I would just say this is down the trail. We have to be very, very careful about the use of American forces," he said.

"But clearly, if force is required ultimately to root out terrorism, it is possible there would be American participation."

I would be for this only if we could be less sloppy about it than Israel has been.

Every time they try to kill one man, they do it with a rocket in a crowded street, and kill everyone in a 10 yard radius.

There needs to be protected areas of the Palestinian territories that are gated and guarded and no guns are allowed. Free education food and housing would be provided for people who choose to live there. If a resident there were suspected of being a terrorist, he would be taken into custody and given a trial. Israel would not be allowed to occupy or attack these areas.

This would have to be done by either the U.S., or the U.N. preferably the latter. Security, and the arresting officers would probably be NATO.

There needs to be a safe haven for Palestinians who genuinely want peace, and are ready to start building the new Palestine.

I fuckin hope they send in the green berets and delta force. I have been waiting for this shit for years. Eradicate those mother fuckers from the face of the earth, if they dont want peace talks, fuck em, let them have 5.62 rounds instead.

The civilian casualties will be lower if they don't use heavy armor like Israel. If they do quick attacks with helicopters and special forces then the civialians should be fine.

Military force (or the threat of it) is the only way that Bush knows how to resolve anything. Too bad that's only a short-term fix...

For every "terrorist" you kill, 10 more pop up in their place. So what are we going to do, kill every last Arab? The neocons are whacko.

hamas is a group dedicated to the destruction of israel and the formation of a fundamentalist islamic palestine in its place. they do not want palestine unless it's THEIR palestine. toward their goals, they've been blowing up civilians for years.

you can't kill terrorism, but you can shut down fundamentalist buffoons like these.

fundamentalist anything blows.

The only way to stop terrorism is to give the population a hope in the future. The military has no chance until millions of Palestinians live in shitty refugee camps. Improve their economy situation and they'll quickly forget about Hamas.
BTW I read that Kofi Anan proposed UN peace intervention few years ago, but failed because Israel & USA opposed it.

And the extreme Zionists on the other side of the coin are just as bad.

If you think terrorism is a threat, then wait until American troops themselves have occupied the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Handing over billions per year to Zionist, apartheid Israel in arms and funding is bad enough.

And the Americans would be any better? Check out the innocent civilian casualities for both Iraq and Afghanistan.

Because they dont want peace, they want Israel dead. Remember the suicide bomber that turned herself into Israeli military before doing the attack? Where do you think she is? Do you really think she was gonna stay there? She would be killed by her own people if she stayed.

iglou: you're faggot, deal with it.

Can you imagine how high those casualties would have been if it had been Israel doing it?
