Iraqi security forces seized 200 explosive belts along the Syrian border Wednesday, according to this AP article, showing (yet again) that Syria isn't doing enough to stop the flow of fighters and weapons to Iraq.
Syria insists it is trying to stop the flow but that it is impossible to seal off the long desert border.
U.S. military spokesman Brig. Gen. Kevin Bergner claims that 60 to 80 foreign fighters enter Iraq "in any given month" â€” 70% of them through Syria.
When will Washington strengthen its sanctions against Syria?
