    Syria fires into Jordan, sparking clashes

    Syria moves its Golan Heights brigade to the Jordanian border

    The armed forces of Syria and Jordan clashed Saturday after Syria fired into Jordanian territory, where thousands of refugees have fled from an 18-month-long civil war between the Bashar Assad regime and opposition fighters.

    According to a report by Al Jazeera, the Syrian army has moved its Unit 61 brigade — whose main function is to block any possible attack from Israel — from the Golan Heights to the Jordanian border.

    Uh, didn't I tell you this was going to get worse?

    :cool:

    oh gee-----worse yes----but I really did not think that syria would get involved in Jordan WHY? Jordan is not going to help ASSAD as far as I understand the situation Is assad trying to DESTABALIZE JORDAN? That might be at the direction of IRAN I believe that Iran would be happy to get rid of Abdullah ------and get access to jordan via Iraq and its shiite activists ----I think-----of course I may be wrong

    Hillary Clinton: Iran will do 'whatever it takes' to prop up Syrian 'crony'
    September 28, 2012 - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday that the US would send another $45 million in aid to Syrian rebels. But that pales in comparison to what Iran is doing to save President Assad.

    We never learn. Bosnia and the other break away countries from Yugoslavia proved that UN Peace keepers were powerless and that NOT providing weapons to the right side resulted in atrocities and years of prolonged conflict.

    IF we support the rebels ARM them. Or stay out of the conflict completely. We are half assing it again.

    I support staying OUT OF IT COMPLETELY------handing equiptment over to the rebels is a mistake-------it would be far better to sit back and -----PERHAPS fight off actual troops or shipments from Iran to Syria ---on the way to Syria -----but not IN SYRIA ITSELF----as far as handing stuff to the rebels-----that is how we made the taliban and their friends "AL QUEIDA" powerful in Afghanistan
