A leading Senate Republican on Friday urged US restraint from supporting Israel's military campaign against Hizbullah, citing the problems it may cause in the war in Iraq and efforts to disarm Iran. In response to the Wednesday cross-border raid in which eight IDF soldiers were killed and two kidnapped, and the firing of hundreds of Katyusha rockets at northern Israel from Lebanon, Israel launched its biggest military campaign against Lebanon in 24 years. Sen. John W. Warner, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, issued a written statement Friday calling on the Bush administration to "think through very carefully how Israel's extraordinary reaction could affect our operations in Iraq and our joint diplomatic efforts to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue. "This is a very critical time for the US in the Middle East, and the Israeli actions will certainly have an impact beyond Lebanon and Gaza," Warner warned.
