War games in Jordan send a signal to Syria

<!– google_ad_section_start –> Under the watchful eye of stern-faced American advisers, hundreds of US-trained Jordanian commandos fanned across the dusty desert plain, holding war games that could eventually form the basis of an assault in Syria. With the recent deployment of Patriot missiles near the Syrian border, and the mock Syrian accents of those playing the enemy, the message was clear: there is fear of spillover from the Syrian war in this US-allied kingdom, and the potential for a Jordanian role in securing Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles should Bashar al-Assad’s regime lose control. <!– google_ad_section_end –>

Fine words but no action from G8

<!– google_ad_section_start –> In the context of the war in Syria, the G8′s support for convening peace talks in Geneva “as soon as possible” and a pledge of US$1.5 billion in humanitarian aid are the diplomatic equivalent of motherhood and apple pie – a comforting reaffirmation of the decent and unobjectionable. But neither will do much to end the crisis any time soon. <!– google_ad_section_end –>

<!– google_ad_section_start –> A missile strike near Syria’s biggest city Aleppo killed 26 people and government warplanes pounded Qusayr, a watchdog said on Monday, as a regime offensive to retake the town entered its third week.

UN warns against escalation after Israeli strikes in Syria

<!– google_ad_section_start –> United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned against escalating a fraught situation in Syria after Israel struck targets near Damascus on Sunday, targeting what its officials said were Iranian missiles bound for Hezbollah militants.

It was aimed, rather, at stopping Lebanon’s Hezbollah, an ally of Iran, acquiring weapons that could be used to strike Tel Aviv if Israel followed through on threats to attack Iranian nuclear facilities. <!– google_ad_section_end –>
