US attacks inside Syria

Postby Egaladeist » Fri Oct 31, 2008 4:10 am

OK...this news is a couple days old ...and it looks like it's going to amount to nothing...but...do you think it's a good idea with lack of International support and the quagmire they have in Iraq to go around bombing other Muslim Nations?

US military helicopters have carried out a raid inside Syria along the Iraqi border, killing eight people including four children, Syrian officials say.

The official Syrian news agency Sana said the attack took place in the Abu Kamal border area, in eastern Syria.

Damascus has condemned the strike as a "serious violation" of its territory.

A US helicopter raid into Syria killed a key figure involved in the smuggling of foreign fighters into Iraq, unnamed US officials have said.

Officials called the raid, which they said killed Iraqi Abu Ghadiyah, a "success". The White House has neither confirmed nor denied the incident.

Syria has condemned Sunday's attack as an act of "terrorist aggression".

It says eight unarmed civilians were killed near Abu Kamal, about eight kilometres (five miles) inside Syria.

If confirmed, this would be the first US attack in Syria since the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

I happen to agree with the US this time, Syria is about as trustful as say Kruschev...:D, anyway the insurgents are using the Syrian border to launch their weapons and raids on Iraqi's, the US and Iraqi forces shuold be allowed to defend themselves and if it means flying over and putting a world of hurt on the assholes who think they are safe within Syria's borders then so be it... :breakfast:

Just like Pakistan, if the local Governments of both Syria and Pakistan cannot control or police their own backyards then they should STFU... :good:

It ain't like they haven't been warned! C'mon. W maybe an imbecile, but he's a Texas imbecile. So, when he says "deal with it or we will," that's exactly what he means.
