Iraqi defense minister, Sa'dun Al Dailami, has escalated his tone against Damascus an accused it of "ignoring the demands of Iraqis of stopping the sneaking of terrorists." After his meeting with the republic president Jalal Al Talebani, he said, "Most bombed cars come from Syria." He warned," The lava of the erupting Iraqi volcano" would attack it. Iraqi defense minister, Sa'dun Al Dailami Within the same context, Barham Saleh, Iraqi planning minister, said that Damascus is harboring the symbols of the former Iraqi regime, whose hands are stained with Iraqi people's blood." Nevertheless, the Syrian foreign affairs minister has denied these accusations and demanded Washington and Baghdad to submit "evidence" for such "allegations". He expressed readiness of "cooperation to return security" to Iraq. In Baghdad, a statement issued by the presidency department has quoted Al Dailami, after meeting with Talebani, saying, "We have evidence and incidents that indicate the sneaking of terrorists from three pivots (on the Iraqi-Syrian borders) and aim at targeting Baghdad at the end." He pointed out, "The first route is Rai'a Route to Al Bi'aj, passing by Tala'far, Biji Al Howaija, Al Dhelo'eya and Kirkuk, reaching Baghdad. The second route is Al Qa'em Route, passing through Hesiba, Al Faluja and Ameriet Al Faluja, heading to Abu Gharib, Sabea Al Bur, Al Taji, Al Sho'la, heading to what is known as 'the Death Triangle", which is represented by Al Yusefia, Al Latifia and Al Mahmoudia." He confirmed, "The third line for the sneaking of terrorists is Al Waleed crossing point. Most bombed cars come through this route as it is a desert route and is easy to sneak through." He warned the countries that neglect the sneaking of terrorists to Iraq, especially Syria, "The lava of the erupting Iraqi volcano would attack Damascus." He added that Syria "neglects the demands of Iraqis to stop the sneaking of terrorists." In London, Barham Saleh said that Syria's situation was harmful and painful for Iraq. He noted, "It helped in the sneaking of terrorists and has approved the asylum of many symbols of the former regime, whose hands are stained with Iraqi people's blood, to Syrian lands, where they are running terrorist acts that are targeting Iraqi innocent people." He confirmed that Syrian and other detainees have confessed that the incentives of Damascus vary between "ideological and international issues" and "settlement of situations between Syria and the United States on the Iraqi arena, at the expense of Iraqi people, " in addition to "financial interests" that are moving Syrian authorities. In Damascus, Al Shara has denied the Iraqi accusations and said that his country is ready for "cooperation for the purpose of retrieving security to Iraqi people." Yesterday, in a meeting with Syrian reporters, he added, "The addressed accusations in this manner, whether by Baghdad or Washington, aim at concealing the bitter truth that we are all facing in Iraq of a comprehensive lack of security, in addition to lack of water and electricity." He added that the Americans have not submitted "any proof" of Syria's support to fighters. He clarified, "The situation is crucial and huge. It needs limitless international efforts. Syria is ready to cooperate for retrieving security to the people within the framework of the unity of Iraq." As regards the visit of the Iraqi Prime Minister, Ibrahim Al Ja'fari, Al Shara said that no date has been specified as there are "obstacles on behalf of their entities against the accomplishment of this visit, "referring to Washington. Nevertheless, he said, "We would keep trying with the Iraqi brothers so as nothing hinders this cooperation, regardless of the hard or huge circumstances." It has been stated that a security Iraqi delegation, headed by an official in the foreign ministry, would reach Damascus to discuss the Syrian situation, on Sunday.

The heat is turning up on Syria. They'll be pushed into line shortly, or face some unpleasant consequences.

I hope that Syria is bright enough to figure out that the Iraqi military will be outfitted with the best technological equipment known to man and that the Iraqis will have been trained by the worlds best military, and I hope they are bright enough to figure out that Iraq's adopted big brother will be standing in the wings just in case.

I had to chunk it for my tired old eyes. The source site seemed to use the <br> tag instead of the <p> for the paragraph breaks.

We've had troops on the ground in the western Iraq - Syrian border region for a while now and operations are ongoing and there is success.

None of this stuff gets cleaned up overnight.

There are other non-combat measures being taken out that way as well. I don't know how classified it is, so I won't go into it, but that area is certainly not being ignored.

This is how the iraqis will prevent an internal civil war. They will go to war with Syria over this after the US Pullout in 2006.

From the beginning I have thought that this is a win-win for us. either we pacify the Mideast through democracy and progress or we see all our natural enemies turn on each other and destroy themselves for us.

Well, don't put too much stock in this. Remember it is an Arab (and Iraqi) trait to scream loudly and waive swords in the air to look as scary as possible in the hopes they won't actually have to fight.

(Anybody remember the "Mother of all Battles", "Committing Suicide at the gates of Baghdad" and other famous blusters and the utter defeats which followed them.)

I'd say nothing has changed, they still have the need to talk tough for home consumption.

That said, there is no doubt Syria is being carefully watched by a JSTAR plane even as we speak, and GWB is probably picking the moment.

And don't forget the other tactic, which has worked so well, until recently:

Attract all the suicide terrorists to Iraq, with the bait of a chance to kill Americans.

1) keeps them off American streets
2) concentrates all the fish in one barrel
3) Puts our guys at risk, but they are better equipped to handle the situation than stock brokers in offices or teen agers at the local mall.

I think part of the reason you are starting to see bombings in other corners of the world is that the Terrorists have finally figured out that they have been had, and they know the can no longer win or survive in Iraq.

These terrorists are the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and the British and American tactics have been brilliant at keeping them there!
