At least 48 Syrian soldiers and eight Iraqis died on Monday when they were ambushed inside Iraq,The Associated Press reports.

The circumstances indicate a blurred border between the countries and a decision by Iraq's Shiite government to support the Shiite regime of Bashar al-Assad.

The attack occurred after the Syrians crossed into Iraq for refuge when rebels seized

  • IRAN HAS NEVER MADE ANY WAR, CONTRARY TO THE JEW NATO.

    REPLACE KHAMENI BY A ZIONIST, AND ASSAD BY A RACIST SUNNI, AND IT WOULD LOOK REALLY HORRIBLE.

  • HEROIC SHIA IRAQ

    SHIAS HAVE ALWAYS FOUGHT THE JEW NATO SYSTEM. IN IRAQ, THE SUNNIS DID NOTHING, BUT KILLING SHIAS WITH CAR BOMB ATTACKS TO PROTECT THE USA MASTER.

    IT WAS SHIAS WHO KILLED US TERRORIST RAPIST TROOPS

  • lol
    They're basically saying "Iraq is fighting Al-Qaeda in Iraq and that's good. But they're also fighting Al-Qaeda members of the FSA in Syria and that's bad."

    The U.S. invaded Iraq because Saddam Hussain maybe knew a guy who's cousin had lunch with Bin Laden. And now the U.S. is directly supporting known Al-Qaeda members in Syria. It would be funny if the result weren't so sad.

    • @Sattori Saddam had a big fat zero amount of culpability when it comes to 9/11 the inside Job, by the neocons and their quest to own every oil field in the Middle East and to go after Iran for Israel. BTW China and Russia has pledged allegiance to Iran if they are invaded.

      I will be needing 50 dollars and a new motorbike by the end of next Thursday, real money of course, otherwise extorting my criminal friends just isn't as stimulating!

      Without looking at your file my magic 8 ball tells me that about 900 people report you for spam every time you upload an item and the fact that you obviously dual post is a no-no. What a tangled web you weave nuts! This is exciting.

      iraqis are arabs iranian are not, iranians are originaly not from the Middle East The Persians came from the North ( Caucasus/Southern Russia ) and started to invade and conquer middle eastern lands in ancient times and still to this day they try to rule all of Middle East.

      its the US installed government that is a puppet of Iran, the iraqi people would love to be independent. But thanks to american invasion they are now yet another slaves of Iran, just like Lebanon and Syria.

    • @SaudiArab25 Lol, a Saudi Arabian talking about slaves and a puppet government. You country is a Wahhabist state that funds, arms, and supports Jihad in other countries. Your country is run by an inbred "royal" family that supports state sponsored terrorism.

      Your country is terrorist haven.

  • I think it's a stretch to say they're aligning with Syria, they're just trying to maintain security on their borders. Full-scale involvement would mean provoking their Sunni population, while avoiding any involvement at all means the possible passage of more radical anti-Shiite Sunni elements across their border

  • An idiot could not negotiate a status of forces agreement with Iraq years ago and this led to increased al-Qaeda presence in Iraq. Now al-Qaeda in Iraq is branching out to Syria via al-Nusra - an al-Qaeda group benefitting from the U.S. facilitating arms transfers to the FSA, which, by the way, uses child soldiers and works with al-Nusra. Maliki is simply having to deal with the fruits of a failed U.S. foreign policy.
