Please join us for another timely and informative conference call. Although most of our Congressional work has been narrowly focused on Iraq and Afghanistan, UFPJ has over the years stepped up in times of crisis in the middle east -- Gaza assault in 2008/2009 and the Israeli bombing of Beirut and Southern Lebanon in 2006, for example. It's high time for another calibration.
