The US is contemplating incursions into Syrian territory in an attempt to kill or capture Iraqi Ba’athists who, it believes, are directing at least part of the attacks against US targets in Iraq, a senior administration official told The Jerusalem Post.The official said that fresh sanctions are likely to be implemented, but added that the US needs to be more “aggressive” after Tuesday’s deadly attack on a US base in Mosul. The comment suggested that the US believes the attack on the mess tent, in which 22 people were killed, may have been coordinated from inside Syrian territory.
Much as the Bushites dress up their language, an “incursion”into another country, for whatever reason – and we know they invent reasons as witness the non-existent WMD in Iraq – would be an invasion into a sovereign country with no justification. And a guarantee of more chaos in the middle east.
