On To Syria?

Could it be? Could it be that on the same day we learn that the insurgents are asking for terms of surrender, that we are at this moment locked in battle with Syrian troops?:

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.

That's from Debka, so take it with a grain of salt. But, on the other hand, it is the logical next step. In fact, oddly enough, I was just about to write that in a post this morning, "On to Syria by Christmas," but I didn't want to bum anyone's trip on Thanksgiving.

Well, well, well.
