US forces have entered Syria. Not a surprise considering Syria, as a proxy for Iran, has been undermining our efforts in Iraq since the onset of the liberation of Iraq and decisive action was long overdue. Many of our boys have died because of the foreign fighters and border skirmishes Syria has been engaging in.
Do not fool yourself into thinking this maneuver into Syria is an isolated effort. IMHO, it is part of the much larger strategy to wrangle the impending nuclear disaster out of the hands of the Iran, nombre deax in the axis of evil. Just as Iraq was a part of the axis of evil and had to be taken down, so too must Iran. This is the vision and the art of Bush's war on the War on Radical Islamofascism. He outlined the plan and who the enemy was back in 2001 after 9/11.
The dhimmicrats keep saying he doesn't have a plan. It seems to me Bush has always had a plan and he is sticking to it. Halivay!
This in from G2 bulletin (subscription needed;)
U.S. Marines and U.S.-trained Iraqi army forces clashed with the Syrian military as well as terrorists using the border area between the two countries during the Pentagon's Operation Steel Curtain action that concluded last week, G2B has learned.
There are unconfirmed reports that some Marines lost their lives in the incursion. A total of 10 Marines were reported killed during the nearly three-week engagement designed to clean up the border area, which had become a bee-hive of terrorist activity.
The offensive was conducted in the cities of Husaybah, Karabilah and Ubaydi in Iraq, and was geared toward preventing al-Qaida in Iraq from operating in the Euphrates River Valley and throughout the country's Anbar province, officials noted.
Unofficially, however, U.S. and Iraqi forces actually crossed the border into Syria and engaged in skirmishes with both Syrian and terrorist forces.
