Clark Backs Israeli Actions In Mideast Conflict
Jennifer Cabala —

Former NATO commander, retired Gen. Wesley Clark, said during a visit to the Denver area Wednesday that he believes the United States should help shape any United Nation's force that's sent to the Middle East to separate Israel and Lebanon.

Clark added that he supported Israel's military action after the kidnapping of two soldiers by Hezbollah militants.

“I've talked to people from Lebanon,” Clark said. “Hezbollah is like a cancer on the body politic of Lebanon. But they're so strong and so powerful Lebanon itself can't get rid of them.”

He added that is was important for the U.S. and other countries to help Lebanon rid itself of Hezbollah.

Clark was in Colorado to speak at a fundraiser for democrat Jay Fawcett who is running for Congress from the state's 5th Congressional District.
