A Jordanian source later confirmed that fighting broke out between Jordanian and Syrian forces in the Tel Shehab-Turra border region, but said there appeared to have been no Jordanian deaths.

“The Syrian side fired across the border and fighting ensued. Initial reports indicate that there has been no one killed from the Jordanian side,” said the source, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity.

Old saying:

“When your enemies are killing each other, get out of the way”.

Keep shooting, muzzies!

Turkey on one side, Jordan on the other and Assad and Mother Russia sidled up in Syria.

Some seriously bad potential going on these days.

New saying, when a terrorist-supporting rabid-dog of a state is fighting for its life and gets into a border shoot-out, while accusing others of supporting terrorists, whip up a batch of popcorn.

If I were president, I would order my crack teams of under cover commandos to blow up mosques in those areas and make it look like the other muslims did it. First one side, then the other side, until full blown conflicts would develop, and they get distracted from the jews and just blow each other up.
