DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) - Syria's state-run television and witnesses say U.S. military helicopters have attacked an area along the country's border with Iraq, causing casualties.
The report quoted unnamed Syrian officials and said the area is near the Syrian border town of Abu Kamal. It gave no other details on Sunday's attack.

Local residents told The Associated Press by telephone that two helicopters carrying U.S. soldiers raided the village of Hwijeh, 10 miles inside Syria's border, killing seven people and wounding five.

The U.S. military in Baghdad had no immediate comment.

This is developing-- not sure why this has happened but it doesn't sound good.

So is it confirmed as US choppers?
The other thread says unidentified choppers.

1. I posted in the correct forum
2. I had to type a more than 50 word post to go with the story, which took me a few mins
3. My thread was the first one with a reply

Edited for grammar error

No biggie. There can exist a thread in the breaking news forum and one on the same subject in the general forums. It's all good.


[ontopic]
Just heard a blurb on MSNBC that Syrian officials are confirming they were US helicopters and that there are 8 dead. No confirmation that I can find from US officials

This does not surprise me with all of the cross border attacks the U.S. has perpetrated in Pakistan. Borders mean nothing these days it seems to U.S. military. I am surprised that it wasn't a drone that did it because it seems in Pakistan that is the weapon of choice. As far as our current relationship with Syria I don't know what that is... I would have to read up on that.

Way to be on top of it lightchild but....

I technically posted 2 minutes before you did so -
,
and technically it's not an "alternative" news headline, but who's really monitoring that anyway..


So long as people are aware of what's going down, thats all that matters...

I could care less who's thread people are posting in...


PLEASE goto lighchilds thread already in progress
