US attacks Syria
Syria condemns US raid as 'outrageous' - BBC
Syria accused the United States of committing an "outrageous crime" in killing eight civilians during a helicopter attack on a Syrian farm near the border with Iraq. Syria has said four US helicopters assaulted the al-Sukkari farm in the Bou Kamal area in eastern Syria on Sunday and that US soldiers stormed a building in the area. The United States, which accuses Syria of failing to stem the flow of al Qaeda fighters and other insurgents crossing into Iraq, has neither confirmed nor denied the incident. "This is an outrageous crime and an act of aggression, of course," Syria's press attache at its embassy in London, Jihad Makdissi, told the BBC. "If they (the United States) have any proof of any insurgency, instead of applying the law of the jungle and penetrating, unprovoked, a sovereign country, they should come to the Syrians first and share this information," Makdissi said.
I hate to be a stickler for these things, but isn't invading someone else's airspace and putting soldiers on the ground an invasion? Hasn't the US just attacked another country by invading them? We don't put up with other countries behaving like this, but seem very quiet when the US does it. I wonder if it was 'military intelligence' that gave them the justification to attack?
