Baghdad - Syrian trade exchange with Iraq topped five billion U.S. Dollar in 2011- up from the US$2 in the previous year.
Abdul-Hussein Jaberi, an advisor for the Iraqi government, told AKnews today that the trade exchange was in the fields of energy, industry, agriculture and health.
He added the government hopes to raise the volume to US$7 billion in 2012 through a plan it has devised. However, he did not expand on the plan.

Border guards did not inspect the contents of the trucks, which raises suspicions that they contained illicit cargo, according to Al-Mustaqbal.
So this is just pure conjecture to fit someone's agenda. I've really had enough of this BS. Why aren't the UN doing more to find the facts and put an end to this madness?

You can't believe a word Assad says either. All we can do is research all of the claims and try to match them up with each other to see if they jive together or conflict.
