Why does this not sound good?

US special forces launch rare attack inside Syria

DAMASCUS, Syria – U.S. military helicopters launched an extremely rare attack Sunday on Syrian territory close to the border with Iraq, killing eight people in a strike the government in Damascus condemned as "serious aggression."

A U.S. military official said the raid by special forces targeted the foreign fighter network that travels through Syria into Iraq. The Americans have been unable to shut the network down in the area because Syria was out of the military's reach.

The flourishing Iraqi democracy was supposed to stabilize the region, wasn't it? Or did I miss something.

Exactly how are we helping stabilize the region - let alone winning friends - by launching military strike against Syria???

Can you spell "C-A-M-B-O-D-I-A"? Expanding the war into Cambodia & Laos was Nixon's "secret plan" to end our ill-fated Vietnam engagement.

Just out of curiosity, did we even TRY to work with the Syrians to help close the porous border?

Stop the madness!!!
