This strikes me as kind of a big deal

US Marines are locked in battle with Syrian troops after crossing the border from Iraq into Syria at a point west of al Qaim
Both sides have suffered casualties. US soldiers crossed over after Damascus was given an ultimatum Thursday, Nov. 24, to hand over a group of senior commanders belonging to Abu Musab al Zarqawi’s al Qaeda force. According to US intelligence, the group had fled to Syria to escape an American attack in Mosul. Syrian border guards opened fire on the American force.
If this turns out to be true, it shows that we still are serious about hunting them down wherever they are. If you're harboring the terrorists, you're just as guilty as the terrorists themselves. I was starting to worry.
