Report suggest US attack in Syria

CNSNews:

"A new report indicates that Syria may be the next target in the U.S. war on terror.

"In a report released Friday by the London-based Jane's Intelligence Digest, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was quoted as saying that the U.S. is considering 'multi-faceted attacks,' which could be conducted against Hezbollah positions in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, controlled by Syria.

"According to the report, the U.S. move would 'almost certainly involve a confrontation' between American Special Forces and Syrian troops.

"The report highlights potential military action against Somalia as well as Syria. According to the Jane's report, 'Covert U.S. forces have periodically infiltrated Somalia over the past two years to conduct surveillance and even potentially snatch suspects wanted for the November 2002 suicide bomb attacks in Mombassa, Kenya.' "

I still think at this point such an attack is only a remote possibility. However, it is one that Bashaar Assad should take seriously. Such reports will put pressure on his regime.
