Default US just attacked Syria

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) - Syria's state-run television and witnesses say U.S. military helicopters have attacked an area along the country's border with Iraq, causing casualties.
The report quoted unnamed Syrian officials and said the area is near the Syrian border town of Abu Kamal. It gave no other details on Sunday's attack.

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.

The U.S. military in Baghdad had no immediate comment.

It's been reported in Sryian media and the Jerusalem Post online - googled it and saw this on the BBC:

'US aircraft attack Syria border'

American helicopters have carried out an attack inside Syria along its border with Iraq, Syrian media says.

The official Syrian news agency Sana said the raid took place in the Abu Kamal border area, in eastern Syria.

It quoted residents as saying that the attack targeted a house in the area in which a man and his four sons and two workers died. There is no confirmation.

Another report, by the private TV channel Al-Dunia, said that nine people had been killed and 14 wounded.

It said that an unknown number of American helicopters attacked the village of al-Sukkiraya, east of the capital. It did not say when the attack happened.

"We are in the process of investigating this," Sgt Brooke Murphy, a US military spokesman, told the AFP news agency in Baghdad.

The US military has complained in the past that Syria is the main transit point for foreign militants crossing into Iraq.

Washington has accused Damascus of turning a blind eye to the problem.
We'll see how widely reported it is in due course.

So far Google has about 1600 news stories on it just fom the past hour.

This is a huge US provocation. I do not expect Syria to take it lying down.

Originally, I thought he was implying Earth changes, which seems very probably with SF, but I couldn't fully put my finger on it with Damascus. Maybe because we bomb the hell out of it. Time will only tell, as Hidden Hand also implies himself.

i do not think this will amount to much. just like pakistan tolerates the cross-border skirmishes so too will syria i suspect.

seem the usa keeps pushing the limits of its cross-border forays further and further.

in the 1980's israel bombed a munitions plant inside syria and nobody said anything including syria.

so i suspect this will not amount to much.

I don't think Pakistan has been tolerating it (as seen with the recent skirmishes in the news, and bad reporting), and in my opinion, they are friggin flipping their she-et in terms of the situation and will not stand for anymore. It's a kettle pot thats really REALLY heating up over there.

Didn't know about the munitions plant thing, thanks for sharing that piece!

I'm sure there's a perfectly good explanation for what happened. By the morning the American army will open our eyes with yet another enlightening reason for killing muslims. Part of the job I suppose, all in a days work.

Peace

MSNBC has just reported that 4 U.S. choppers were involved in a raid on Syria. The U.S. military command in the area has refused comment.

Considering Iran is Syria's surrogate parent, this is a good way to get under Iran's skin and stir the pot.

Hey arcora, you are installing fear in some people here who can't handle it just by the title of this thread! We're not attacking Syria, we just did an across the Iraq border raid into Syria, there is a difference.You shouldn't have labeled it like you did!

Dan I partially agree, but when you say "we" it worries me. do you actually feel associated with those people?

peace.
