u.s. helicopters attack syria  

Posted by SjP in

News agencies are reporting and the Pentagon has just confirmed that the United States has attacked Syria. Syria is now accusing the US of launching cross-border helicopter raids from Iraq, killing nine civilians.

Syrian TV channel Al Dunia said a number of American helicopters attacked the village of Al Sukkiraya, on Syria's border point with Iraq. Witnesses said the attack targeted a house in the area in which a man and his four sons, and two other people were killed. "Nine people were killed and 14 wounded in the raid, which hit a group of builders while they were working," the television station said.

Although this is a developing story, neither the Obama or McCain camps have released a statement or commented on the attack. Is it possible that the attack could tip the tables in McCain's favor? Your thoughts?

Obliged to you for hearing me,
and now old SjP ain't got nothin' more to say...

This is not good. The United Stated armed forces are already stretched thin trying to fight the first war.

This is absolutely politically motivated by Bush to try to create a new "fear/scare tactic" to get a republican in the white house, John Mccain. The US has known about syria's border region and the likes going on there for well over a yr and NOW they conduct military action? This is another action by Bush and Cheney to do what ever they please with out having to answer to the American People. People should write and complain to every news organization out there that this act is poltically motivated in a effort to change the outcome of an Election! I just happen to run into your site and saw that you were on top of the news enough to question it, Thank you. Mr. Obama is the person we need as our President and the republican party will do EVERYTHING possible to try to keep him from the presidency.

@ Anonymous, much obliged for stopping by. Please don't be a stranger as the doors are always open here at SjP's.

Yes, I do believe you're right. I suspect that this attack will become more of an issue before the end of the week. I'm sure Lt. Dan (that's what he's called here at SjP's) is getting all of the lowdown so he can come out with a real "commander and chief"-type message to prove that he has the wherewithall to be president. Let's see just how long it takes.
