It makes me sick in the stomach to see once again innocent civilizans suffering and to see infrastructure destroyed that had been rebuilt to make Beirut the jewel of the Middle East, now blown to smithereens.

I led a Congressional delegaiton to Beirut 24 years ago when it was last bombed back into the Stone Age. At that time, Ronald Reagan got on the phone with Menachem Begin and said, enough is enough. And the bombing stopped.

I've been hoping for the same kind of leadership from this President.
