"The Middle East in Crisis: A View from Israel"

Q&A

By Chuck Freilich, Senior Fellow, International Security Program and David C. Speedie, Former Senior Fellow, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, 2007-2008

"I think the United States does not have the stomach for getting into another ground war in the region....I do think that air strikes alone are not going to do it. The boots that will be necessary on the ground will have to come mostly from other parties, not from the United States. Turkey is a good candidate. They've got a long border with what's happening and it would be nice to see some of the Arab countries putting some boots of theirs on the ground."
