Special Forces strike into Syria


Seems American special forces flexed their muscles in Syria proper.
DAMASCUS, Syria – U.S. military helicopters launched an extremely rare attack Sunday on Syrian territory close to the border with Iraq, killing eight people in a strike the government in Damascus condemned as "serious aggression."
The article goes on to say,
"We are taking matters into our own hands," the official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the political sensitivity of cross-border raids.
The Syrian government of course condemned the preemption,
"Syria condemns this aggression and holds the American forces responsible for this aggression and all its repercussions. Syria also calls on the Iraqi government to shoulder its responsibilities and launch and immediate investigation into this serious violation and prevent the use of Iraqi territory for aggression against Syria," the government statement said."
My problem with the Syrian government is they are acting like they are totally innocent and have no regional control. There is ample evidence of them at least turning a blind eye to these insurgent operations which is allowing them to continue. But, the debate will rage and people will still have their opinions since unilateral preemption is such a touchy subject.


"Happy Hunitng!"
