I do believe that the Iraqi Ba'athists are in fact coordinating operations from the believed safety of Syria and that at some point the problem will have to be addressed - better that the Syrians do it themselves.

Bring the troops home. Agreed.
Besides, all this can be done by the Air Force, which has little else to do.
IMHO, send Mr. Powell or Ms. Rice over on a "eye-opening" diplomatic trip to Damascus. Have them briefcase carry a few video's of the air campaign against Iraq. At the sametime, up the Air Force's activity along the Syrian border, maybe even make a couple sonic-boom type flyovers where they are 'discussing' the Syrian involvement in all this and I'm sure that Damascus will have to seriously consider the ramifications of such continued allowances from within their borders into Iraq.
Damascus only heeds one thing: applied force.
Israel has shown/proven this time and time again.
Deliver the message, the warning, and tell them the consequences for their continued involvement and allowances. They (Damascus) can and will ultimately decide which path they will choose....

No, I don't think we need the sonic booms over Damascus. More like a silent run of B-2s and F-117s and a lot of bombs dropping on their heads. Then they might get the message.

Belive or not, Syria has always been a thorn in the Middle East, eyes have never been off of them, but with recent activities in Iraq, well back that up, pretty much since the first Gulf War . . .
