Know your history, as some will recall there is that whole Russian's leaving Baghdad for Syria during the invasion. Military observers in a convoy. Either they were smuggling out a crashed ufo or they had Iraq's wmds. Maybe the Obama administration will use the same "illegal" tactics to get involved in Syria that Bush used for Iraq.

Another propaganda BS I think. He's the US Secretary of Defense......we all know they're all liars. Bush....says there are WMD's.......where.....never found.... Probably the same with Panetta. Obama's administration are even bigger war mongers than Bush was. Congrats to Obama for making the US seem even more like the assholes of the world.
Those RUSSIAN WMDs that left Iraq just weeks before the coalition forces could invade to take custody of them were not only "found" but never lost. USAF birds watched the 11 RUSSIAN trucks take them out of Iraq into Syria.
So as to not provoke RUSSIA into the unavoidable end-game thermonuclear war, the Bush administraton lied and said they made a mistake that they were never there. Took one for the team and the 2-dimensional thinkers sucked in all in and believe it to this day.
Problem is the Iraq (RUSSIAN) WMDs really, really may have been lost this time in Syria. Now the world is really screwed if this is true.
BEIRUT — The Turkish military struck targets inside Syria on Wednesday in the most serious escalation in international tensions since the Syrian revolt erupted 19 months ago. A brief statement issued by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s office said the Turkish army had hit unspecified Syrian targets in retaliation for a shell fired from Syria that killed at least five civilians in a Turkish border town.
