Democratic presidential contender says US should target Syria, Hizbullah

A Democrat, no less
Democratic presidential contender Bob Graham said on Thursday that Syria should force Lebanon's Hizbullah to close what he described as "terrorist training camps" on its territory or face unspecified U.S. retaliation.

[...] Citing U.S. intelligence reports, Graham called Hizbullah "the A-Team of international terrorism" and said it had "a significant number" of operatives in the United States awaiting orders to act.

Graham said at a Council on Foreign Relations forum that if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad did not eliminate the training camps then Washington should consult with allies who helped wage the war in Afghanistan "and decide the next step."
