US thinking about military action in Syria

A trial balloon is floated by an “unnamed senior administration official.” And where will we get the troops to do this? This is f*cking nuts. (Jerusalem Post):

The US is contemplating incursions into Syrian territory in an attempt to kill or capture Iraqi Ba’athists who, it believes, are directing at least part of the attacks against US targets in Iraq, a senior administration official told The Jerusalem Post. Another US official said that sentiment reflects a “growing level of frustration” in Washington at Syria’s reluctance to detain Ba’athists and others who are organizing attacks from Syrian territory. The official cautioned, however, that whether to take cross-border military action is still a matter of discussion within the administration and that a military incursion is still “premature.”
