Mr. Speaker, our President was caught on camera, on microphone, and off the cuff yesterday. He said: ``What they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this (nonsense), and it's over.''

He told Tony Blair he felt like telling U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan to get on the phone with Syria's President and ``make something happen.'' After all, that's Annan's job.

What he said was the truth. I am glad we got to hear his candor, his straight talk, his no nonsense analyzing the problem: Syria can stop this border war.

He stated: ``Hezbollah is housed and encouraged by Syria and financed by Iran.''

Our President left out the politically correct niceties and cut to the chase.

Mr. President, preach on, preach on. The blunt blazing truth without any fluff is what needs to be said. We know who is behind the attacks against Israel and we know who can stop it. It is time all people of the world hold the aggressive Hezbollah terrorist thugs accountable for starting this border war.

And that's just the way it is.
