Flow of Arms to Syria Through Iraq Persists, to U.S. Dismay

The American effort to stem the flow of Iranian arms to Syria has faltered because of Iraq’s reluctance to inspect aircraft carrying the weapons through its airspace, American officials say.

The shipments have persisted at a critical time for President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, who has come under increasing military pressure from rebel fighters. The air corridor over Iraq has emerged as a main supply route for weapons, including rockets, antitank missiles, rocket-propelled grenade and mortars.

If this keeps up, we may have to pull out all the stops and to use our best buds in the media to portray us, then, as . . .

Baffled!

And then it's all downhill from there.

Downhill?

Is that a good direction for our foreign policy to be heading into?

It better be.

Maybe we should, like, consider having some boots on the ground in Iraq to stop this kind of nonsense from going on.

Oh . . . wait.
