ABSTRACT
The author reflects on a helicopter attack carried out by U.S. Special Operations forces on Sukkariyah, a village in Syria six miles from the Iraqi border. She asserts that the U.S. strike in Syria represents an example of how the Iraq War is destabilizing the entire region. She believes that what she calls an illogical policy of U.S. President George W. Bush towards Syria in his administration, which is dominated by threats and coercion, offers the next president with a clear guideline of what not to do in the Middle East.
