Broadening the wars?

Syria claims that US forces attacked a civilian construction site on its territory. “The Associated Press news agency quoted an unnamed US military official in Washington as saying that American special forces had attacked foreign fighters linked to al-Qaeda.” The official said, “We are taking matters into our own hands.”

This, in combination with attacks within Pakistani territory, appears to represent a serious expansion of the wars which are supposedly against terror. Having been rebuffed in its designs on Iran, the Bush administration may nonetheless be leaving its successor with a broader war that won’t be any more winnable for its expansion.
