Ok so the "Non Event" this has been called by some is heating up rapidly:


Syria has protested angrily to both the US and Iraq after what it said was a US helicopter raid inside its territory that killed eight civilians.

Syria summoned US and Iraqi envoys to condemn the "aggressive act". Iraq said the area targeted was used by militants to launch cross-border attacks in Iraq.


And unlike some commenters on this thread THIS is a FIRST, and no in 2005 etc Israel may have launched attacks within syria but NEVER the USA


If confirmed, the raid would be the first known attack by US forces inside Syrian territory, says BBC diplomatic correspondent Jonathan Marcus.



And as to nothing happening in response, well the Syrians are being very open about the future now:


A Syrian government statement said: "Syria condemns this aggression and holds the American forces responsible for this aggression and all its repercussions."

He warned that Syria would "respond accordingly in the proper way".

The government newspaper Tishrin called the act a "war crime".


And more innocent children again have been murdered:


A building under construction was hit and four children and a married couple were among the dead, it said.


On the Today programme on BBC's Radio 4 This morning the Syrian Diplomat in London Mr Makdisi stated that:


This is a sheer violation of International Law


The Entire Radio Interview is here:Listen

This is what the Syrians are seeing today, how many more "terrorists" have just been radicalised by this?





Kind Regards,

Elf

war is wonderful is it not?To bad people can't seem to figure out if we got rid of the federal reserve bank wars would pretty much end as they couldn't just run a couple trillion off the presses.But then our government couldn't run off a trillion or so to bailout crooks and thiefs either.They had to strike Syria now because when the dollar fails they won't be able to.I won't be surprised if Iran is next on thier list.Everyone vote for Obama or McCain as niether one of them will get rid of the fed.

Still nothing is going to come of this. Its already being dropped off of the main news topics on some websites. Plus Syria isnt going to do anything. A non-vent that will be forgotten.




what are you talking about? This is on the bbc headlines, cnn, sky news and so on.

For those of you who havent seen the BBC report on this..

Syria condemns 'US village raid'


"We are taking matters into our own hands," the US official said.


Only surprise there is that they are starting to admit it openly now!

Condemning the event is abut all that Syria will do. Same thing they did after israel bombed their "reactor' last year. A bunch of whining that turned into nothing.

I suppose if Syria were to start retaliating against the American war machine they will do it by sending their own "Terrorists" if your American, "Freedom Fighters", if your not, into Iraq.

The world has more "Freedom Fighters" daily thanks to the Hitler like tactics shown by the American war machine. The casualties were a family, for gods sake!. If someone attacked a house in my homeland I would become a freedom fighter along with many. My American brothers and sisters...SO WOULD YOU !

As to the posts that mention Syria doing nothing about this, those that say it sound as much like a bully as your own countries military.

Situations like this alianate you from the rest of the world, a world by all accounts, that you want to own, use and generally hold power over for financial reasons.

America is the bully on the block and we all know what happens to the bully eventually.

People are dead, it could be yours or mine, this makes me so so angry.

Saying that Syria wont do anything has nothing to do with being a bully. Its stating a fact. If their previous track record proves true, then they will not do anything. Its just how it is.

Let us not forget the military alliance between Syria and Iran. Israel is currently facing a general election, after the Prime Minister-elect could not find enough support for her coalition.

Perfect time for the Iranians to play silly buggers?

Correct.

Nope. Nothing so grand.

Just the extraction of an Iraqi citizen who is a designated terror facilitator.

CNN describes it as a successful operation. What?

All the hawks can drum up reasons and excuses for this event but it doesn't change the fact that the US is basically invading a country to suit its own purpose. The 'with us' or 'against us' can be used but there is not reason Syria has to choose a side. The US can state it needs to but once again the US is its own self-appointed police force of the world. How long before its everyone else in the world against the US.

If the US is so concerned about cross border illegal activity I would be grateful if it would focus that concern on the southern US border.

How about this:

A U.S. strike on a network of foreign fighters in Syria killed its main target — an Al Qaeda coordinator who was wanted for sending foreign fighters, weapons and cash into Iraq, a U.S. official told FOX News.

So, if another country illegally enter the US to kill some it considered an enemy, and in doing so destroyed your home or business then all would be fine.

Rinse and repeat a few dozen times and all is still OK.

What does that have to do with the attack on the al queda leader in Syria? Didnt the US put the whole world on notice about 7 years ago that they would go after al queda wherever they were if those who run those countries didnt try to stop al queda? Seems to me that Syria hasnt really done too much.

These is no difference. So we are allowed to dictate what everyone else in the world should do. The US has basically been a terrorist organization for decades. Look at the history of our actions throughout the world. Manipulating governments for our own purpose.

Well, there's two scenarios here...

1: The US knowingly and willingly violated another countries border, which constitutes as an invasion. (They're evil).

2: The US military still can't figure out how to read a map. (They're stupid).
