RED LINE, THEN OF COURSE

CONCLUSIONS WILL BE DRAWN BY ALL

OTHER PLAYERS INCLUDING PLAYERS

HOSTILE TO THE UNITED STATES

INCLUDING IRAN

REPORTER: STRIKES FROM THE

AIR OR SEA AND PRODUCTION PLANTS

SCATTERED THROUGHOUT THE

COUNTRY.

THAT IS THE SUBJECT THE

ADMINISTRATION WON'T ADDRESS IN

THE MEDIA.

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S RED LINE ON

SYRIA IS A BIG ENOUGH PROBLEM

FOR THE MIDDLE EAST.

HERE IN JERUSALEM, PRIME

MINISTER NETANYAHU HAS TO DEAL

WITH A MORE DANGEROUS RED LINE,

THE ONE LEADING TO NUCLEAR IRAN.

A RED LINE SHOULD BE DRAWN

RIGHT HERE.

BEFORE -- BEFORE IRAN COMPLETES

THE SECOND STAGE OF NUCLEAR

ENRICHMENT NECESSARY TO MAKE A

BOMB.

REPORTER: MONTHS AFTER

NETANYAHU'S RED LINE SPEECH,

FORMER ISRAELI MILITARY

INTELLIGENCE CHIEF SAID IRAN HAS

CROSSED THAT RED LINE.

INVOLVING IRAN BIDDING A WEAPON

WHILE ISRAELI RED LINE TRIED TO

PREVENT IRAN FROM GETTING

NUCLEAR CAPABILITY AND PRODUCING

A WEAPON.

RED LINE HAS BEEN CROSSED.

A LOT DEPENDS ON IRANIAN

DECISION.

REPORTER: WESTERN GOVERNMENTS

DEBATE WHAT THEY MIGHT DO,

ISRAEL IS STRENGTHENING DEFENSES

ON GO LAWN HEIGHTS.

THEY APPEAR TO LEAD STRAIGHT TO

ISRAEL'S BORDERS, CH CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, JERUSALEM.

MUCH OF THE U.S. WAS FOCUSSED

ON U.S. AND BOSTON, ATTACKS

SOARING IN APRIL.

DEADLIEST MONTH IN APRIL.

INCLUDING 117 MEMBERS OF IRAQI

SECURITY FORCES.

ASSOCIATED PRESS RECORDS ONLY

400 DEATHS.

CASUALTY TOTALS VERY BECAUSE

REPORTS VARY.

SECURITY IS RAPIDLY

DETERIORATING IN IRAQ.

JOINING US IS DR. WALID

FARRIS.

WALL LEAD, SOME SAY THE SOME SAY

SITUATION IN SYRIA IS SIMILAR TO

THE ONE IN IRAQ BEFORE THE

INVASION?

YES.

THERE IS A CONFRONTATION BETWEEN

TWO CAMPS, ONE IS REGIME, BACKED

BY IRAN AND HEZBOLLAH.

THEN YOU HAVE THE OPPOSITION.

OPPOSITION HAS TWO COMPONENTS.

ONE IS SECULAR.

OTHER IS ISLAMIST AND JIHADIST.

ONE OTHER SIMILARITY ARE

CHRISTIAN AND ETHNIC MINORITIES.

THEY HAVE SUFFERED IN IRAQ AND

NOW SUFFERING IN SYRIA.

DIFFERENCE IS THERE ARE NO

FOREIGN FORCES, THERE ARE NO

AMERICAN FORCES ARE NATO FORCES

READY TO INVADE.

THAT IS WHY THE CONFLICT IS

GETTING LONGER ON THE GROUND.

WALID, NOW WITH THE CHEMICAL

WEAPONS INVOLVEMENT, HOW MUCH

SHOULD THE ADMINISTRATION BE

INVOLVED?

UNFORTUNATELY TO ACT IN SYRIA

WHEN IT HAD THE CAPACITY WITH

OUR TROOPS IN IRAQ.

WE WITH DRAW FROM IRAQ IN 2011

WITHOUT DEALING WITH THE ASSAD

REGIME.

NOW SINCE 2012, IRAN, THROUGH

IRAQ HAS BEEN SUPPORTING THE

ASSAD REGIME.

UNFORTUNATELY JIHADI-LINKED

GROUPS ARE MAKING PROGRESS.

WHAT CAN THE UNITED STATES DO

NOW, IT IS GOING TO BE

DIFFICULT.

WE LACK A REGION AAL ALLIANCE.

WE HAVE NOT IDENTIFIED A SECULAR

ELEMENT AND SUPPORTED THEM.

THERE IS WORRY AID MONEY

GIVEN TO REBELS WILL FALL INTO

HANDS FROM EXTREMIST OF AL-QAEDA

OR HEZBOLLAH, IS THAT A

LEGITIMATE THREAT?

IT IS VERY LEGITIMATE.

IF WE THROW AID WITHOUT

IDENTIFYING WHO ARE OUR

PARTNERS, WE MAP END UP ARMING

HEZBOLLAH ON THE ONE HAND OR

AL-QAEDA AS YOU SAID.

DO YOU THINK THERE IS AN END

IN SIGHT?

FIGHT MIGHT GET INTO IRAQ AND

LEBANON BY THE SAME FORCES

FIGHTING IN SYRIA.

THERE MAYBE REGIONS SUCCEEDING

IF DA MAS DAMASCUS FALLS, IT IS

A LONG CONFLICT.

ALL RIGHT.

HIS INTENTIONS.

A RUN FOR THE WHITE HOUSE IS

DEFINITELY ON HIS MIND.

EVEN THOUGH HE IS FAIRLY NEW TO

THE SENATE, CRUZ IS ONE OF THE

FEW REPUBLICANS BEING CALLED A

POTENTIAL ROCK STAR.

WHAT MAKES THIS LONE STAR

LAWMAKERS TICK?

TO CRUZ'S POLITICAL CORE.

CRUZ, A SOUTHERN BAPTIST DOESN'T

SHY AWAY FROM TALKING ABOUT HIS
