Condoleezza Rice Watch: Iran and Syria Next Targets?

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice testifies before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee regarding U.S. foreign policy in Iraq Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2005 on Capitol Hill in Washington. Rice on Wednesday outlined a strategy for helping Iraqis clear out insurgents and build durable, national institutions as she sought to reassure jittery members of Congress about the path to peace in Iraq. Seated behind Rice are Army Lieutenant General Raymond T. Odierno, right, and Deputy Legislative Assistant Skip Sherrell.

The ASSociated Press has Rice Won’t Rule Out Force on Syria, Iran.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Wednesday refused to rule out U.S. troops still serving in Iraq in 10 years or the possibility that the United States could use military force against neighboring Syria and Iran.

Rice deferred to the decisions of President Bush and military commanders as Republicans and Democrats on the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee pressed her for more specifics on the U.S. strategy in Iraq.

Asked specifically whether the United States would have troops in Iraq in five or 10 years, Rice said: “I think that even to try and speculate on how many years from now there will be a certain number of American forces is not appropriate.”

An appropriate response.

One thought on “Condoleezza Rice Watch: Iran and Syria Next Targets?

  1. I think the space between C.R.’s teeth is to entertian politicians just as Monica did. C.R. just seems to be taking orders from higher (lower members) to keep her position and job. Who cares about her pianist or ice skating. That does not apply to her polictical postition. How did she get this JOB. I have a degree and can’t even get a reply from an employer to scrub toilets. HELLO! WAKE UP (KEEP THE POOR/RICH “only” – no middle ground IN THE BUSH ADMIN). Sorry about the harsh comments but, I am trying to climb out of the depths of poverty for over 20-yrs now. Have a 3.9 GPA “undergrad” BSBM degree/”Student of the Year” status and can’t even get a “temp” agency to call me for work (I am with 3 agencies). What is the problem within the US? HELP? Should I seek citizenship abroad? I give up???!!! Please send S.O.S. (reply). I would love to hear more lies about how our Bush administration created millions of jobs (for who?: immigrants illegally crossing our borders? from everywhere) I’ve gone to school with many who live much better than I due, because of our gracious govenment entititlements to foreigners). Most of the jobs cited in the Pres’s address did not incicate what type of jobs….more than likely, digging ditches/landscaping/physical labor for foreign immigrants. Where is our GDP? We are dying! More imports than exports. And what is going on with U.S. Quality Control? That is why we are losing ground in manufacturing and exports. What are we doing to promote educated people in the U.S.? Sorry story! Of the few companies that I have worked with the temp agencies they dont’ even know the term “quality control” How can America stay alive in a Global Initiative under these circumstances? We have many issues at stake! Survive, adapt, diversify, or DIE is this the prophecy behind what backs the symbols on our American “greenbacks” that were so severely robbed by F.D.R. during the Depression…giving citizens $20 in worhless paper for gold then raising the price of gold to $35? What a SIN!! Then we have this “thing/holy ghost-entity called “Uncle Sam” who taxes us multiple times for the same item and screws us again after the multiples. MY ASS HURTS!!!!!!!!!!!!
    In my opinion, we better keep up with PRO-abortion issues if jobs cannot be found or a higher power will continue to devestate humanity to sustain (exceptional/worthy) perptual human existance. Let’s not even touch the issue of ignorance.
    If any Libertarians, Left Wings, Democrats, or Independents agree with what I have to say…Please contact me for a job, lobbying for you interests. Thank You!
