Is this a new war or just a mix up over the border line?
Could this be done to upset Iran who have a mutual defense agreement with Syria?
What if Syria shoot a USA helicopter down?
Hopefully there will be some more details soon and maybe some pictures.

Not enough information in the story. I can already see a Syrian or Iranian leader making a claim that it was a U.S. helicopter. Either way, this will get blown up into something it's not.

Yep not enough info yet.
But unidentified helicopters flying around Iraq/Syrian border?
That wouldn't be the safest activity to partake in.
I wonder what more we will get.Maybe some made up dribble to cover it up.

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.

This whole thing is very odd. Why would they attack a small village in Syria? Was someone hiding there they wanted? How do the villagers know they were Americans? The helicopters were initially reported as unidentified. Are they sure they weren't Israeli?

Well that's really sick if this is true and they want to lure them into conflict.

This is SICK.

Or just some kind of error... but I doubt it since HELICOPTERS were involved!

Maybe this is the october surprise for McCain...

What sort of range do military helicopters have? If anyone knows it could give us a clue as to where they could have come from.

"The area in which the attacks allegedly occurred has been a known route through which insurgents cross into Iraqi territory and the U.S. has accused Syria of not doing enough to stop the flow."


Read the whole report from TransworldNews.com

Who's to say soldiers where even in these helicopters. They could have been drones. That way even if one was shot down no casualties. Still not good to send them into a potentially war inducing country.

Unless that border is undefined with a huge margin of error how, with today's technology, could such an error be made other than gross human error.

If true it sounds like the PTB are up to their usual nonsense.

Sky News is also reporting that the US stormed a building in Syria. The Syrians have called an emergency meeting.

Looking on Google Maps, Abu Kamal in Syria is on a main road between Syria and Iraq; the M5 and road 12.
Perhaps the USA would be better defending the border and catching the enemy before they cross the border.

Reading The Jerusalem Post

Syria: US choppers bombed targets on our soil, near Iraq




Israeli defense officials said the incident was not connected to Israel and that the American troops had been chasing Global Jihad suspects in Iraq. The helicopters then crossed into Syria in pursuit of the terrorists.

This isn't really a surprise from their part...

They attacked Russia by proxy... they did 9/11... they torture... they lied to invade a country... they are crashing the economy...

So attacking Syria is no big deal.

And what's more interesting is you have a Russian fleet in Syria... if by mistake a bunch of Russians are killed... this will not end well.

Enlist while you can!

better to die fighting than hiding in your home.
Freed isn't Free , but the US Marines will pay most of the toll.

The AP has picked this up. No word yet from MSM and no comment from the military. Things are going to get very ugly soon.
