Syrian Forces Engaged By US Military?
Per their report:
Both sides have suffered casualties. US soldiers crossed over after Damascus was given an ultimatum Thursday, Nov. 24, to hand over a group of senior commanders belonging to Abu Musab al Zarqawi’s al Qaeda force. According to US intelligence, the group had fled to Syria to escape an American attack in Mosul. Syrian border guards opened fire on the American force.
Well, they have been harboring al Qaeda terrorist and providing support for the insurgency against the new Iraqi government, so it's probably about time. Closing off the Syrian border will stop the rat line and should also lead to another rat dictator's fall........................
