The U.S. and Iraq decide on a new strategy to secure Baghdad and the war between Israel and Hezbollah escalates.
As Israel pounds Hezbollah targets and the terror group continues to launch hundreds of rockets, the U.S. is meeting with key players in the region to develop a strategy to bring a quick end to the violence. And as Hezbollah rockets reach deeper into Israel, the Israelis debate whether a major ground invasion will be necessary to effectively deplete Hezbollah capabilities. How long will the conflict last and what should the U.S. do next? Also, what will be the impact of Israel's fight on U.S. operations in Iraq and attempts to curb Iranian nuclear ambitions? We will discuss the latest diplomatic news and the prospects for resolving the conflict with U.S. Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Nicholas Burns.
Also, as sectarian violence worsens in Baghdad and surrounding areas, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki visited the U.S. this week in hopes of developing a strategy for success. Meanwhile, critics of the U.S. operations in Iraq continue to mount, contending that the Bush administration committed a number of failures during the last three years. We will get an assessment of where the U.S. currently stands in Iraq and where it can go from here from former Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority, Ambassador Paul Bremer.
