Syrian Spillover

Sadly, predictable:

The armed forces of Syria and Jordan clashed Saturday after Syria fired into Jordanian territory, where thousands of refugees have fled from an 18-month-long civil war between the Bashar Assad regime and opposition fighters.

Has it really been 18 months? I’m losin’ it.

So, by my count, the civil war in Syria has now overflowed into Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, and, indirectly, Iran (Iran being all too happy to ship weapons of mass destruction to Syria with the attendant risk of war with Israel)  100% of the countries that share borders with that country have had cross-border incursions of violence.
